private driving/tour guide

Hello,

Can anyone recommend a private tour guide based in Kenmare? My cousin will b on her own w/her two teenage sons. She's not comfortable driving the mini van we've rented. I'm not comfortable putting them on a coach tour. I'd rather hire a driver who can act as a tour guide to give them a personal 'go at their own pace' day. Not sure which they'll b interested in doing either ROK or Killarney National Park to include Gap of Dunloe. I've contacted Kenmare Coach and Cab Co, awaiting response. Will prolly go w/Tours by Locals if I don't get any responses from this posting. Thank You!

I used Gene O'Sullivan our of Glengarriff (20 miles south of Kenmare) and highly recommend him. Great driver and guide. He made our 1st trip to Ireland a wonderful experience. We hired him for two weeks to drive 3 couples and by the end of the trip he was like a member of the family. Give him a shout. Feel free to shoot me any questions on my experience with Gene. http://www.glengarrifftours.ie

Hello-We just departed from Aghadoe Heights Hotel outside of Killarney. Supplementing a wonderful staff is a highly recommended independent introduced to us by the hotel, Padge O'Sullivan, who escorted us throughout the Ring of Kerry and the Dingle Peninsula and Blasket Islands, ensuring that we experienced not only the "usual suspects" but equally marvelous lesser frequented places, all the while entertaining us with stimulating information and cordial conversation. I cannot recommend him too strongly!

A very safe driver and a lovely man with whom to spend time. We cannot recommend Padge too highly.

Hello,

Happy New Year. We are thinking of using Gene for our spring trip to ireland. He suggested NOT booking any hotels in advance---I just wondered if that is how it worked with you and if that was fine? Many thanks
