The route is comprehensive and beautiful and is not excessive for one day.
He also had a keen eye for safety so this would be a good tour for families as well.

Ring of Kerry in snow-capped glory
Lynn_S, Jan 2023
We had a good humored, knowledgeable guide/driver on our spectacular tour. Beautiful snow and a lovely day added to a thoroughly enjoyable experience. The small, friendly group was a plus, as well.
January isn't the best time
Brooke_D, Jan 2023
There was nothing wrong with the tour, except that I don't think the time of year was the best for this tour. The horse tour wasn't running, so we had time in Killarney, but not the park area, which was a major draw of the tour for me. So, we didn't see Ross Castle, no Muckross House & Gardens, etc. A lot is the scenic outlooks were clouded in as well. I'll be returning to Killarney Park another time to see more
Worth it
Susan_S, Jan 2023
My brother and I loved the Ring of Kerry day tour. It was so beautiful, we couldn't believe our good luck with the weather (there had been a "wind warning", but we had zero issues and next to no rain or wind). John was a good tour guide, but I think he was a little bored of us. Most people weren't into participation, they just wanted to look out the window and I think he wanted us to play along more than we were.
Fun, interesting and quirky day out! Full of Irish charm!
Sean_K, Jan 2023
Brilliant day trip with lots of interesting and quirky stops! John our driver was fab telling us tales and history about the area! Great value for money and highly recommend! Would love to do the tour in the summer when the pony and cart rides are on. Highly recommend Paddywaggon tours!
A great way to spend a day
Michael_G, Nov 2022
We enjoyed the entire tour - the driver/guide was very knowledgeable and seemed happy to share the beauty of his country with us.

Beautiful views of Irish coast and Torc waterfall. Great balance of stops and scenic drives. Good options and timing for food breaks. Tour guide provided interesting commentary on Ireland’s history and the places we visited
Kerry in a day
Dianna_W, Oct 2022
My first trip to Ireland and have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. The Ring of Kerry is probably my favourite right now. You definitely need more time to explore this amazing part of the country
The tour was good. But coud be better.
Eldon_M, Sept 2022
The driver is rude. He didn’t let us in the bus despite the fact that we have a ticket. He said he couldn’t find my name on the list. Then totally disregarding us without telling us what to do. Good thing I reached out to their office immediately.

Ring of Kerry Delight
Lucy_J, Sept 2022
Stunningly beautiful weather was a fantastic complement to the tour. Our driver, Aidan, was very informative and friendly. We feel head over heels for County Kerry! We highly recommend the Jaunting Car ride, and Paddywagon Tours!
One of the best things I've ever done
Eileen_B, Sept 2022
I was in Ireland for two weeks, in many towns, and this might have been the best thing I did. What a special way to spend my last day. Martin was an incredible guide - I learned so much history with much humor mixed in. I wholeheartedly recommend this trip to everyone who visits Ireland.
A beautiful excursion but improvable
Berta_O, Sept 2022
The tour of the national park and its surroundings is of dazzling beauty and we liked it very much. We also enjoyed the horse carriage tour, which was recommended to us by the guide. However, we suffered a lot because the guide and driver did not stop talking all the time, for most of the trip (when he did not speak he played music), with a loud volume of the speakers. When we complained he sent us to sit at the back of the bus, but this did not make it better. We also missed some more interest in making us understand his indications, since we are not native English speakers and it was difficult to capture the details of were to go to lunch, for example. O The excursion would improve even more if Nature were given prominence and not to the explanations of the guide, with too many anecdotes and personal opinions. We would liked have to be a little more time enjoying the marvellous waterfalls, 20 minutes is very little. The visit to Kerry Bog Village was unpleasant, the village is very neglected and the animals found in it look not well enough treated.
Amazing Experience
Hailey_P, Sept 2022
All of the stops were gorgeous and it was so nice to be in an air conditioned bus with USB ports at every seat. Definitely recommended doing the horse tour through Killarney national park at the first stop! Also, be sure to bring cash.

Great time
Kristyn_M, Aug 2022
Great trip. Worth the trouble of not having to drive. Tour guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Weather makes all the difference.
Great experience
Abigail_K, Aug 2022
John was an excellent tour guide. In addition to knowing the history of the areas we passed he has a great sense of junior an was a fabulous story teller. We couldn’t recommend him or this tour any higher.
Fantastic trip, the highlight of our holiday
Helen_O, Aug 2022
We had a fantastic day on this tour. The weather was superb. Our driver, Aidan, was a great guide. He gave a commentary on the history of Ireland throughout the trip. We had ample stops at some lovely places. The highlights were the horse and cart ride in Killarney National Park and the Torc waterfall, along with the stunning scenery along the way. It was the highlight of our holiday! I would highly recommend.
Excellent tour
Susanne_R, Aug 2022
