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.

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!

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.

We rode from our hotel to Muckross house. It was worth every penny. The old Irish driver had been riding tourists in his carriage for 50 years. Amazing he was and full of the blarney!

The park is incredibly beautiful. And our driver John, and his horse, Bella, where our hosts for the occasion. John is incredibly entertaining and cheerful. His sense of humour is great and will explain to you a lot of things about all the things you visit in the park. It will be one of the greatest rides of your life... More

This was such an amazing experience! I went as a part of CIE tours. All we knew is we were going jaunting to Ross Castle. The buggies hold 6 people and there are warm blankets to cover your legs. The scenery through the park is amazing and the views of the castle as you go along spectacular!! The castle itself... More

What a lovely time we had seeing Killarney National Park this morning via horse-drawn carriage. Jimmy, our driver, made the experience unforgettable with his wealth of knowledge and gregarious personality. And my wife adored the horse, Ringo Starr. If you want to go see Ross Castle, make sure you go via carriage. You won't regret it.

This horse-carting ride through the National Park at Killarney was very relaxing. The horse-carting ride is about 30-45 minutes. We were picked up at Ross Castle having had a boat trip on Loch Lein as part of our Shearings Holiday Tour. Our driver was funny and very informative. I would recommend horse-carting if you visit Killarney.

I don't normally do this, but I did for my wife and I loved it. Views of the park and Ross castle was awesome and I thought the 12 euro price was reasonable for the time we got. We had Gerard and Sally and it was great. Excellent experience!
