This was a great experience start to finish! The pony & trap ride through the gap was breathtaking. Lunch at the Cafe was tasty, and they had the cutest little resident Frenchie . (Note: the cafe is cash only.) The boat ride across the lakes was really fun and filled with stories, history, and jokes from our driver. We had the best time!

It was excellent value for money and the guide was really nice and gave us excellent information on historical and famous people around Kerry. It was a memorable experience.

Lovely, peaceful boat ride across the lakes. Knowledgeable guide who told us lots of local history. The pony and trap was lots of fun. Great trip!!

Great tour, first by a jaunting car, then by boat. Wonderful scenery. The boat man had a great sense of humor and a very cute dog.

the road gets very narrow in spots, so unless you are a seasoned driver, take the bus tour
