Our jaunting car experience was excellent! Our driver was very friendly and great with our young kids. He let them each take a turn “driving” and even took video of them for us. It was a great family experience!

Loved our tour! We loved hearing the history of the park. Our driver offered to let the boys drive the carriage at one point, which they probably would have enjoyed it it hadn't been raining. They wanted to stay in the covered carriage!

The driver was great! Our youngest daughter was allowed to sit up with the driver and "drive" the horses. It was one of her best memories of our vacation in Ireland! The driver was the father of the owner. He was a great story teller and was very informative. He did not rush us on our trip even though it was raining. Really happy we took the tour. Would highly recommend!
