    Traveler Tips


    Yes, the clouds can sometimes hamper, but if you are patient you will get to see eventually.
    The van would fit 5-6 people very comfortably and the freedom to stop where you like for how long you choose really makes the day.

    A day I will always treasure!
    Tanya_C, Nov 2021
    A true VIP experience! Tony was an absolute gentleman- I am so glad he was my tour guide and partner for the day! A day of great conversation and experiences. There is no way I would have seen some of the sites on my own. Tony gave me a day that I will always treasure and I thank him for that.
    Fun, memorable and truly worth it
    Jordan_M, Oct 2021
    Excellent tour. Our guide, Peter, was very knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make the tour truly memorable and enjoyable. Pickup and drop-off were both efficient and our guide was very flexible. Water was also provided. Do bring and wear stuff suited to the largely unpredictable Kerry climate - one moment you may need sunscreen and sunglasses and another you may need rain ponchos and wellies! We saw a lot and had a really wonderful time. Highly recommended!
    Response from Host, Oct 2021
    Thank you Jordan. I had a great day with you both as well. Thanks a lot. I'm sure that we will be in touch. Regards Peter.
    Wonderful day spent touring the Ring of Kerry with Peter!
    Marlene_K, Sep 2021
    We had an excellent private tour with Peter on 8/23! My friend and I were visiting from California and decided to splurge on a private tour so that we could skip the mega bus during Covid. We also wanted to go to the Kerry Cliffs, which the bus cannot get to...It was SO worth every penny! Peter was just so informative on so many things. I didn't want to just see the sights, but also wanted background info and special knowledge on what we were seeing and Peter had all of that in spades. By doing the Ring of Kerry in the opposite direction than the Mega Buses go, we were able to avoid lots of the crowds. We were blessed with gorgeous weather and when we got to the Kerry Cliffs we were in awe - I can't believe how many people miss them entirely when they visit. It was just breathtaking. Peter always checked in with us and made sure if we wanted a coffee or lunch that we were taken care of...I really trusted him on the drive as well which takes a good level of driving skill. We cannot recommend Peter and this tour enough! We came back to CA still dreaming of everything that we saw that day - just magical!
    Best tour imaginable!

    The Ring of Kerry is spectacular in and of itself, but having a tour guide like Piotr truly made for a memorable experience. His knowledge of the history and evolution of the land and people, as well as the local lore, was outstanding. And he was so willing to tailor the tour, stopping only where we wanted and for as long as we wished, made for a perfect day. And he made us all anxious to return to Ireland soon. Five stars all the way around.
    Response from Host, Aug 2021
    Thank You for visiting us. we had a great day. I always hope to see my guests again. Do not forget Ireland :)
    Great scenery-so glad to have a driver.
    Helynn_b, Jan 2020
    This is some of the most beautiful coastline views. Yes, the clouds can sometimes hamper, but if you are patient you will get to see eventually. Although we rented a car to drive around Ireland, this is some very harrowing windy, narrow roads with hairpin turns. Dan was a great driver and guide. He showed us all the highlights on the ring of Kerry and gave us history and background to learn about them. He also made some great recommendations for where to stop on our next drive. It was so nice to go off season when the ring road wasn’t clogged with busses-it was even worth putting up with the cold wind and rain. I highly recommend doing this day trip from Killarney.
    Saw a lot on a short day

    William was great. He showed us about as much as it was possible to see on a late November day. His knowledge of the area's history and culture added significantly to the experience.
    The marvelous Ted Kennedy
    elizabeth_p, Oct 2019
    What an exceptional tour of the Ring of Kerry provided by Ted. He was amusing, always with a fun Irish story. A challenging drive on winding roads that Ted rode with ease and confidence. He went out of his way to show us every exceptional view on the Ring as well as on side roads. There is no way a large tour bus could have given to us a more spectacular. He knows the Ring. If you come to Ireland and you wish to tour the Ring of Kerry if you do not have the pleasure of Ted Kennedy providing this service you are missing out.
    Response from Host, Oct 2019
    Thank You for a fabulous day. I am so glad. I hope You will not forget Ireland and come back soon.
    Fantastic day
    LoganD178, Oct 2019
    This tour was awesome. Our driver Tony is quite the personality, if you know what I mean (you’ll understand that comment when you take his tour). Tony showed up at our hotel on time and took us on a very pleasant tour of the ring of Kerry and places in between. He finds out what you like and recommends great points of interest. I usually just drive myself around but I’m really glad we took this tour as I would never have found the great spots that Tony knows, he seems to know every bump in the road. The only tiring part of the trip was getting in and out of the car to take hundreds of photos of all the wonderful scenic views. I’ll be recommending this trip to friends and family. Thanks for a great day Tony, you’re the best.
    Response from Host, Oct 2019
    Thanks for great opinion. Tony will be really happy and all of us are really glad that You had a nice tour. Hopfly see You again. Kind regards Peter.
    Fantastic Day
    RonanOShea2014, Jul 2019
    We booked the trip a couple of days in advance and couldn't have been happier with the experience. The driver, Brian, was extremely friendly, knowledgable and brought us to places my parents had never been to, and they have been going to Kerry for 50 years! Also this tour goes to areas the buses cannot reach due to the roads. The van would fit 5-6 people very comfortably and the freedom to stop where you like for how long you choose really makes the day.
    Response from Host, Jul 2019
    Thanks Ronan for great review. I really appreciate it. If You ever need guide in Ireland , we will be ready. Regards Brian.
    So happy we booked this tour!
    Joel_B, Jun 2019
    This tour was fantastic. We had Will Fleming, who has received numerous other excellent reviews ... and we found out why. He’s very informative on so many fronts - history, politics, economics, nature, etc., all while he navigates the windy, often narrow roads of the ring. He was also very accommodating to our needs, including access by car to the cliffs of Kerry, which is normally not allowed, and finding us a charming lunch spot on our personal time table. Compared to a large bus tour or trying to enjoy this trip in our own car, this tour is a no brainer, so happy we booked it!!
