The tour was an hour long and a great mix of city and park tour. Paul, our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. Blankets were provided to keep warm. Geppetto the horse was a great tour guide as well! Killarney is a great town and this experience made our day!

We had a beautiful & thoroughly enjoyable carriage ride in the Killarney National Park. We highly recommend this experience. A great way to see the lakes & different areas of the park without spending a whole day walking around. Our driver & guide Calvin, was delightful & a proud 6th generation carriage driver for the family business. So glad we did this!

We had a most enjoyable trip despite the weather. Michael our Jarvey and Pixie our Pony looked after us well. They were wating ahead of time for us at the pick up point. Michael pointed out the areas of interest on our journey and stopped in the appropriate places to allow us to take photos. I only wish we could have spent more time on the trip.
