This a must do for anyone visiting Ireland and Killarney. The boat ride across the three lakes was beautiful. Water was a bit low, very unusual for Ireland, so we had quite an adventure going from one lake to another in the boat. The jaunting cart ride was awesome! An experience you don't want to miss! Thanks Darcy!

We had a bit of bad luck with the weather on the day of this tour, but both operators for each leg pony/trap and open boat went above and beyond to make this as enjoyable as possible. Would definitely recommend!

Amazing tour! One of the best days of our 24 days. The scenery was incredible, and being on the lake was a great experience - the weather was perfect! The jaunting cart was quite an experience - the narrow roads were great fun and it is absolutely breathtaking - I would recommend this a Must See!

Beautiful tour, both the horse and boat rides are amazing. You get driven to either where the boat starts or the horse ride starts. There really isn't any commentary but with the scenery, you don't need it. The horse ride through the Gap of Dunloe is really amazing. Feel bad for the horse that has to pull the four of us through the valley. But, it was beautiful. Then we connect with a boat to go back from the lakes to Ross Castle. Again, amazing sites - this is a definite tour to do...

Absolutely LOVED this tour!!!! Laura picked us up in Killarney as planned and took us to the jaunty ride location.....brilliant ride and stunning scenery. We then had lunch and went on a boat ride of the 3 lakes. Again brilliant and very relaxing!!! Both drivers were amazing and I would recommend both this rides....
