Beautiful area and great guide
, Aug 2021
Richard was a great guide and seemed to know everyone in the area. We went through some great trails and identified local plants and saw so many deer. I had a lovely time. It was such a laid back, informative tour and Killarney is so beautiful I wish I could go back.

I love showing people my back garden Killarney National Park especially when we get the lovely sunshine of recent times. I call it my back garden as i was born, and reared just across the road near St. Marys Cathedral, and exploring the outdoors was always my passion.Thanks for walking with me. Slán go fóill (bye a while).
We LOVED it !

Nature walk in the Kingdom
, Jul 2021
My family and I travelled from Co.Louth to enjoy the National Park and the great Kerry people. We got both of those on this tour. In heatwave temperatures we skirted the lake edge and rambled through forest. It felt like another kingdom. This National park is safe in the hands of the Kerry people. Mike thanks for the tour and “I’ll get you next time…”.

Yes we have some places around Loch Léin in Killarney National Park which could be described as Irelands Amazon. I was born and reared just across the road from this area, and its the place i love most. A wilderness area which thankfully hasnt changed much over the centuries.Thanks for walking with me, and for writing this review. Slán go fóill.
Great experience. Great Value.

Great experience. The tour guide provided us with the history of the park, Lakes, Ross Castle, The tree of the sleeping Monk, restaurant recommendations and places to visit. He was also very pleasant and great craic. Tickets were only €10. Well worth it and great value. Can’t go wrong with only a tenner.

It was a lovely day, and when we get good dry weather i like to go off the beaten path to some of the best places in Killarney National Park. I love to walk around the shore of Loch Léin, and you could easily spend a few hours in the vicinity of Ross Castle or the old copper mines. Thanks for the great review, and i hope you both get the chance to discover more of what Killarney has to offer. Slán go fóill.

Really enjoyable walk
, Sep 2020
Thanks Mike for a very enjoyable and informative 2 hours with lots of history of the beautiful Killarney national park. Our walk went off the regular paths but really easy to negotiate as Mike went at our pace. We especially enjoyed seeing the deer out grazing and the jersey cows. We loved hearing the history about the families that lived in there in the past . We would recommend a visit to Killarney House which is free to visit. Mike kept us on our toes with the promise of a little quiz at the end. We would certainly recommend this tour.

We don't normally go on guided tours but we were glade we did. Richard is so friendly and enjoyable to be around, he walks as fast or as slow as required and explains the local points of interest along the way. Richard and his guide partner Rua made our walk a pleasure and he even took longer so that he could share a few hidden spots of beauty. Thanks again Richard and the lovely Rua.
