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
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.

Our jaunting car tour was fabulous except it only last approximately 40 minutes and not the full hour. We actually walked to where a number of the jaunting cars were and some phone calls had to be made to make sure we were on the schedule as we originally were to go the day before but when I called they informed me that there was no issue with doing the next day for which we were grateful.

We LOVED our Jaunting Car tour. Our driver wish I could remember his name! was the absolute best a very warm and welcoming young man, knowledgeable, a great driver, and answered all our questions with humor and grace - after hearing them all, I'm sure, hundreds of times before. We were treated to some of the most peaceful, beautiful views we've seen anywhere in the world, accompanied by the soothing clip clop of horse hooves. We learned a lot of facts and history in the best, most fun way imaginable. The Jaunting Cars are a MUST DO in Killarney. You won't find a more enjoyable, relaxing, rejuvenating break for your over used vacation feet or your over stressed vacation psyche than this. Honestly, all 4 of us from 12-64 years old agreed the Jaunting Car was top notch!!
