Informative and relaxing boat ride. Very nice jaunt with friendly guide who was knowledgeable about history of the local area.

Fun

We were only able to the jaunting car because the lake was too rough but it was great. Our driver Michael was great fun and we loved our horse Gonzo.

The Jaunting car tour was very good. Dan was a great driver and Abby was a great horse. Very enjoyable

Nice combo trip

The combination tour is probably a bit pricier paying up front vs paying in person but it was nice. The jaunting car trip was pretty short (just 25 mins) although the boat ride was an hour long. One word of caution…make sure you tell your cab driver to go all the way to the castle car park. Ours dropped us off 1/2 mile short…lovely walk but we were almost late.

Loved being able to experience the park and get the history. We didn’t have time for a hike, so this was perfect!

The boat ride captain was extremely knowledgeable and interesting. The jaunting car driver was quite personable but really it was more of ride in the park than an actual informational ride

Would not recommend

The activity was very boring. They fish try to make it interesting, but there were many more interesting tours that I could have chosen on that city

Great mornings craic Irish style!!

Jaunting car was a great experience, our driver was great craic and his horse Jimmy did an amazing job. Driver pointed out all the places of interest in Killarney national park, giving us the history as well as some funny stories. Also told us all about Jimmy and his favourite tipple…. a pint of Guinness every day!! It was fascinating to see the tame deer roam free throughout the park, but we were delighted when a fawn came close to the jaunting car giving lots of opportunity for pictures. Trip took about 45 minutes. Next was a boat trip on the lake, don’t know the name of the skipper but he was fantastic, told us the history of the area and pointed out places of interest. Also allowed the children to take turns steering the boat, which was a lovely idea. Boat trip took 1 hour. Loved both activities, would recommend 100%. If you are looking for a relaxing few hours with a bit of Irish craic thrown in then this is for you. Tip… book before you go, saves time queuing and you have your choice of seats on boat.

An experience the family will never forget

On the Jaunting carts my 2 boys got to take the horses reins and they loved it, also on the boat they were allowed to steer the wheel, both experiences they won’t forget thanks 😊

Trip worth doing

We booked the Jaunting Car and boat trip with viator. Really enjoyed both. We were at the Ross Hotel instead of the Ross Castle to start out trip and 1 of the drivers quickly got us picked up there. So helpful and efficient. Our driver Eoin on the jaunting car was fantastic. Very informative and funny. Recommend this trip definitely. Great views on the lakes. Lovely to hear the history while enjoying the fabulous scenery.
