Definitely beats driving and with a knowledgeable tour driver well worth the price
This tour was well worth it...this way everyone can enjoy the views and not have someone driving on very narrow and winding roads.
The views were spectacular and our bus tour driver very informative and amusing

It is such beautiful scenery. We stopped at this restaurant that looked over the ocean for lunch it was a little rushed but the view was worth it. There was some interesting stops along the way. Crafter and Artist display there wares along the highway and at the stops. Some of them were very entertaining. I found the Bog village very interesting in the history of Ireland.
If there is one tour you do while in Ireland, you must do this. This was the absolute most scenic tour I've ever been on, and I've been on many trips over the past few years. The lakes, the national park, the ocean, the mountains, you get everything. So many photo opportunities.
The landscapes were beautiful but I didnt enjoy the trip at all.
It was a trip of stop-get off the bus-take picture-get in the bus all the time. In the last stops I didnt get off because I was tired of taking photos because so.
I couldnt understand the driver so, if you arent English speaker, book the multilingual one. Nice comments, the same as the driver. Jokes included.
It was a bit disappointed. But bus very comfortable and price reasonable.
The food in the place we stopped wasnt good enough for the price almost every dish was 15 and they didnt taste as homemade food.
Prefect way to see the Ring of Kerry. Dennis our tour guide was very entertaining and informative. The scenery was breathtaking but the highlight of the tour for me was watching the dogs herding the sheep. Amazing.
All though the weather was against us Michael tried to keep us informed. His driving was superb coming from a professional driver he was very careful making sure we all enjoyed our trip safely. Great information we really enjoyed the trip. Well done Michael great job.
One of the main highlights of out trip. Ray, our tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, funny and entertaining while traversing the very narrow roads around the ring. I was definitely glad to have someone else driving. I would strongly recommend a bus tour for this part of Ireland. It was relaxing and enjoyable as well as educational. Good job, Ray!!
Great driver, very helpful and full of information. Made us feel very welcome. Highly recommended
Great trip and beautiful sights! We were even serenaded by our bus driver!
Well worth the time enjoying the beautiful Irish countryside and a little Irish culture.
Absolutely stunning walking through the Gap of Dunloe, you had 2 options to go through it. Either physically walking it or taking a horse ride, the walk was 3 hours and horse is 90 mins. The road is completely paved so there's no way you can get lost, there are TONS picturesque moments so I do recommend the walk.
There is a boat ride back to along the rivers to Ross Castle which was roughly about 60 mins I could be wrong but I found that part was absolutely gorgeous, we also completely lucked out since the weather was sunny were as the week before it was raining like no tomorrow.

Nice and comfortable bus ride with tons of photo opportunities given to you by the bus driver. The views were just awe inspiring and completely worth it, hopefully the weather holds up which our group lucked out on.
The guide on this tour never stopped talking. Always telling us stories about previous customers who had told him he gave the best tours. I finally put my head phones on with some music for a break. He was a nice man but I could have done with less talking. Also the lunch stop was horrible. The food didn't taste very good and the place wasn't very nice to look at.
Only way to see the ring of Kerry with out driving the edge. Very informative, bus very comfortable. however not being a tour bus fan, was a couple hours longer than would have liked ....
Awesome experience. A must-do if you are travelling to this beautiful region in Ireland. Don't plan anything else during the day as it will be packed up from 10am till 5.30pm, which is enough to make you want to rest after this 179km ride. Our driver Maurice was very knowledgeable and friendly at the same time, making the trip as pleasant as one could ever expect. The sheepdog training was very entertaining and enjoyed, especially since we were travelling with young kids.
We really enjoyed the tour even though it was a bit of a foggy and drizzly day. Our tour guide provide lots of information and Dingle was very charming.
Was lucky with the weather when going through the Gap of Dunloe which was stunning.Went on the pony and trap but if you choose you can walk the 7 miles although their is a lot of up.Unfortunately the 14 mile trip on the lake it rained but it was made by the knowledge of the guide.Would highly recommend.

Excellent tour. The driver was knowledgeable and interesting. There were several stops and they were all excellent. Don't miss the sheepdog exhibition.

Tour was great -- weather not very cooperative, so we did not get to appreciate the beautiful scenery as much as we had anticipated. Highlight of the tour was the sheep dog demonstration.
I was pretty excited about this trip but ended up being disappointed. We stopped at too many places where we had to spend €5+ (like the dog show). Would have liked to have known that ahead of time. Also stopped at too many towns where there was nothing to do but spend money or stand in the rain.
The good: Ring of Kerry is gorgeous. Champion sheep dog herder demonstration was one of my favorite things on our trip entrance fee sep.
The bad: Big bus with lots of people maybe 40ppl. Tour guide didn't share a whole lot of info. I've been on other viator tours where the guide essentially leaves the mic on and shares a lot along the way. This one was friendly but only spoke about a short paragraph every hour and it sounded scripted. The last half of the trip was covered in fog so you couldn't see anything...not their fault of course.
Bottom line: The Ring of Kerry is worth a tour. Much better then trying to drive and not see what's around you. If I could do it again I'd spend a few days in Killarney and last minute book the nicest day OR spend a little extra on a small group tour that has the flexibility to change up the locations based on weather.
Absolutely fantastic trip. Our guide was great and knew lots of information. My children really enjoyed the dog exhibition.
