Molly led us on a lovely excursion, we could never have covered so much of the beautiful park on foot. Our guide Damian was friendly and polite. He had good knowledge of the park history and the deer. An enjoyable experience, highly recommended.

Family friendly tour guide that has thought of everything.

We were eyeing up a carriage trip and bumped into Damian and Molly. So glad we took the opportunity to do something like this. We were not long in killarney and everyone was tired from a day on the road travelling, but after we had fulfilled our promise to the kids of ice cream, we saw the beautiful Molly with her carriage and we came over to say Hi, Damian was super friendly and told the kids all about his horse (and the cows where their ice cream came from 😉).

We decided to seize the opportunity and go for a tour. So glad we did it there and then as Damian was a wealth of knowledge on all things Kerry and had some great tips for our few days plans and what to do and where to stop in etc.

Damian is passionate about his horse, family business and all things Kerry. A gent, and the kids felt comfortable right away. He even stopped to show our daughter the horse with the blue eye along the way.

The park is fantastic, I feel all setup for our next few days and know what I really want to see more of. The carriage was clean, with gel available. Being outdoors and seizing the rain free moment was great. Although Damian ensured us that he had umbrellas for the light drizzle and the carriage was a convertible if it got worse. We were happy to be in fresh Killarney air.

Beautiful spot complimented greatly by a knowledgeable tour and friendly tour guide. Keep up the great work!
