Although we had a hire car, we decided that this would be a much more pleasant day for the driver ( my hubby), the nervous passenger ( me), if we hired someone to drive us. We contacted Paul Brown at Brown's taxi service in Kenmare. He provided an amazing service. We spent nine hours with him in his eight seater mini van, taking us totally stress free on a customised tour of County Kerry. His local history and geography knowledge is outstanding and he took us to places that coaches couldn't have accessed and places that we wouldn't have known about anyway. My husband was free to enjoy the drive and it was so much more meaningful to have a guide all long the way, so that we knew what we were looking at. I would certainly recommend this way of seeing The Ring of Kerry and the surrounding beautiful area.
