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.
  • Explore Killarney in a traditional Irish horse and carriage (“jaunting car”)
  • See the 15th-century tower house of Ross Castle and look for native red deer
  • Learn about Killarney’s history and culture from your carriage driver
  • Choose the perfect time to suit your travel plans
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 tour's starting point.

We had a wonderful ride, it was a cold day so we were happy there were wool blankets provided. Donnell provided information on the area and there we had plenty of photo opportunities along the way. Great way to get a park overview!

We had a great start to our day with Michael and Molly Malone on the 9:30 tour to Ross Castle. Michael was very friendly, knowledgeable and funny. The ride was the perfect amount of time to see the lake and Ross Castle before we were off to our next adventure!
