Do as the tourists of bygone years did, and explore Killarney by horse and carriage. The equivalent to a modern taxi, the jaunting car was popular in Ireland through the 19th and early 20th centuries. On this tour, you’ll learn about the area’s history, hearing tales of the Gaelic chieftains as you ride around Killarney National Park. Ross Castle, St. Mary's Cathedral, and Killarney House Gadens are a few of the landmarks on the route.
  • Enjoy transport by old-fashioned horse and carriage
  • Watch out for Ireland’s last native herd of red deer
  • Listen to tales about O’Donoghue Mor and Oliver Cromwell
  • Stop for photos at the 15th-century Ross Castle

Your Killarney Jaunting Car will start from The Great Southern Hotel on the East Avenue road. This start point is located beside Killarney Train Station and Killarney Outlet Shopping centre. There is car parking in this area.

This activity will end right where it started.
Head to the Malton Hotel in Killarney for your horse-drawn jaunting car tour. Several departure times run through the day, so just turn up at a time that suits your schedule.

Once on board, you’ll travel past St. Mary’s Cathedral, a delightful thatched cottage, and Killarney House and Gardens. Head into Killarney National Park, and travel at a relaxed pace through countryside where the modern-day traffic can’t reach.

As you go, keep an eye out for red deer; the deer park is home to the country’s last native herd. Gaze out at the lake against a backdrop of distant mountains, and see if you can make out Carrauntoohil, one of Ireland's tallest peaks.

Hear tales from your carriage driver as you pass Ross Castle, a 15th-century tower house. Owned by O’Donoghue Mor, the castle was the last to be defeated by Oliver Cromwell and the English in 1652. Stop for photos, then return to the start point in Killarney.
