We are a group of 15 individual Jaunting Car Tour Operators which have amalgamated to form this partnership. Most of us are Second and Third generation Jaunting car operators. To date we have been operating as individual operators but feel that we need to pool together our knowledge and experience to stay on top of the ever changing market. Our experience spans over 350 years combined. We have up to 25 carriages which allow us to cater for large groups as well as smaller groups. We are proud to have the oldest Jarvey (Jaunting car operator) in Killarney with us, who boasts an impressive 50 years of experience. We are proud to be in operation 7 days a week, 364 days a year, making Killarney Horse & Carriage Tours Killarney's only all year round tour operators!

The ride around the National Park in Killarney is a must do experience. Not only does it give you an up close and intimate view of Ireland's beauty, you will probably see wildlife you would never see otherwise.

This was the perfect activity following the wonderful St. Patrick's Day Parade in Killarney. Our driver was very friendly and courteous. Even in the mist of the afternoon, the ride was very smooth and enjoyable, with our guide pointing out all the places enroute to Ross Castle. Well worth the 20 euro ticket price.

"Billie" the horse did a nice job of escorting us around the park. You get a little bit of history from the driver and wonderful scenic views of the lake, castle and wildlife. It took about 45 minutes. It was nice

This is a nice way to see the park when you are short on time. We were staying at the Killarney Plaza Hotel right across the street and were able to get in a 4pm carriage tour right before dusk. The guide was funny and knowledgeable. He easily answered questions. This is definitely worthwhile if you do not have time... More

I'm hoping that this is the company that we travelled with because I'm home know and forgot to keep the brochure. We had Michael and his horse Bobbie. The latter was calm through the traffic and through the countryside and Michael was willing to share stories of his life and his community. And in the process we got to see... More

We did the trip to Ross castle. We have done this trip twice now as a family. The kids love it. The last time our jarvey was great he kept the kids amused and gave us a lot of information as we went round. I would recommend taking the trip.

Michael and his much loved horse Jimmy gave us the best tour this morning. Michael was so informative and fun ( great dad jokes) when he wasn't offering to take photos for us. We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 hour and would recommend this as a MUST DO.
