Overview

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

Return Details

Returns to original departure point
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.

Very enjoyable trip out on the jaunting car to Ross Castle. Lovely guy Michael brought the group. We are a group of 9 and we all fitted into the one Jaunting Car. It was a wet miserable morning in Killarney and Michael agreed to come to the hotel door to collect us. We laughed and enjoyed every minute of the trip and the weather was quickly forgotten. Michael gave us a nice mix of local history and also a nice sample of Kerry wit.
