Overview

If you’re someone who loves history and prefers to plan ahead, book your Killarney horse-and-carriage tour in good time. With multiple departures spread across the day, choose the slot that suits you best. Then let your knowledgeable “jaunting car” driver guide you through town—the old-fashioned way.

What to Expect

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 point where you began.

Dennis and Charlie

A lovely ride into the national park to Ross Castle. Charlie pulled the jaunting car while Dennis regaled us with stories. They make quite a team! It's a pretty and peaceful activity. We would do it again if in Killarney.
