Itinerary

Greet your driver at the Malton Hotel in central Killarney—and pet the horse, if you’d like. Climb aboard and relax as you trot through the town and your driver points out landmarks.

Pass St. Mary’s Cathedral, a charming thatched cottage, and Killarney House Gardens before you clip-clop into Killarney National Park. The country’s last herd of native red deer frequent the deer park, so keep your eyes peeled as you admire the misty mountains across the lake.

As you approach Ross Castle, a 15th-century tower house, your carriage driver will tell you tales of its heroic past. Enjoy a photo stop here before you return to the tour's starting point.
