We booked Killarney Tour and Taxi to drive us from Dublin to Kinsale, then Kinsale to Killarney, Killarney to Kilkenny and Kilkenny to Dublin Airport throughout the week. With less than 48 hours’ notice, the hotel in Killarney canceled our paid reservations for two nights. There was no availability anywhere, and we had to scramble to find accommodations and re-arrange our transportation with Killarney Tour and Taxi. Jackie, one of the owners, was extremely helpful, patient, and responsive. We knew we needed them on a different day, but we didn’t know where we were going until we found a hotel. Jackie assured us it would not be a problem and she also looked for accommodations for us! Instead of transportation from Kinsale to Killarney, we were able to stay in Kinsale. Killarney Tours and Taxi booked us a full day with their driver, and he took us to the head of Kinsale, the Wild Atlantic Way, Bantry, Killarney National Park, Tonic Falls, Muckross House and Gardens, and part of the Ring of Kerry. We stopped at a local artisan shop that sold locally made sweaters, pottery, weaving and more. He also recommended a great restaurant for us. Our driver was Barry, and he was amazing—very knowledgeable and friendly. The next day he drove us to Kilkenny and recommended a visit to Blarney Castle on the way. It wasn’t a place we planned to go, and Rick Steves gives it a horrible write up in his travel book. Rick was wrong, and Barry was right! The gardens are spectacular, and the castle was quite something to see! Listen to the locals before Rick! Incidentally Rick was also wrong in the way he suggests seeing the coast. Barry knew the best way was anti-clockwise. Bantry isn’t even mentioned in Rick’s book, and it is charming. Barry recommended we stop there, and we were glad we did! Killarney Tours and Taxi were wonderful to work with and extremely patient and understanding working around the hotel cancellation. I would highly recommend them and would definitely use them on the next trip!

I first contacted Killarney Tour and Taxi at the recommendation of a relative who had used them maybe 8 years ago with Jack as their driver. My first thought, and principle goal was to avoid the stress of driving while also trying to lead a trip for the family. But Killarney added so much value to our trip beyond just the taxi. We had three, non-consecutive driving/tour days with Mick. Mick picked my husband and I and my niece and her friend, both 18, in Dublin. We had all the travel delays and cancelations common in 2023, so we arrived a day later than planned missing a checked bag and after two sleepless nights. Mick was unphased and unfailingly kind and patient as I tried to work out what was happening with the bag. He found a balance of making sure we saw some key sites while he guided us to Kinsale to check-in as we faded with fatigue.

Despite all the research I had done, I realized once I was in Ireland how much I didn’t know. Mick gave us great suggestions for the next day’s itinerary and feedings while we guided ourselves. Then as he knew us better over the next two days, he ad-hoc’d an itinerary together that we loved while getting us to our ending points each day. Every site added value to our trip.

Mick proved an excellent guide—knowledgeable and was good at corralling 4 people that practically went feral each time he let us out of the van. More than the sites it was just an absolute pleasure getting to know him. Mick is kind, funny, smart, and has great stories of the areas we visited. Even after our guided driving days finished and we were left unsupervised on the roads of western Ireland and Inishowen, Mick felt like the 5th member of our group, with each of us saying at some point, “too bad Mick wasn’t here for this, or Mick would have thought that was funny”.

We had such a great visit and Mick did a great job with fairly novice International travelers. The trip would not have been as fun without Mick. Thank you!

Four friends and myself recently took an 18 day vacation in Ireland, and we did so knowing full well the caronavirus could wreck havoc on our schedule. We had already had to make a number of changes to our planned itinerary even before departing the States. And, our fears were somewhat justified as we would soon find out. But wait, we met a man named Jack. And, while I'm not nominating him for sainthood, he did prove to be a savior when it came to our time in Ireland. There were numerous times when he made on-the-fly adjustments to ensure every day's schedule was chock full of things to do and places to see that weren't a part of our original itinerary. On one occasion, he got us out to see the gardens on Garnish Island even though we had been told that it wasn't possible.
Having said all that, I haven't even mentioned his personality. Yes, he was our tour guide/driver,but he was even more. He became a part of our little reunion group. We're a group that loves to laugh, tell stories and pick on each other. Somewhere along the way, he became one of us, joining in with our playful banter.
In summary, an already great trip was made even better thanks to a man named Jack Hayden.

Booked Killarney Tour and Taxi for an airport pick up and drop off for 7 people. Business event. Was able to book everything via email but phone contact was also very easy. Quick to respond to communication The taxi was spotlessly clean, plenty of room for baggage and arrived/departed on time. No need for ringing and checking if they were coming, very reliable service. Got quite a few quotes from other companies prior to booking and Killarney Tour and Taxi were very competitively priced considering the excellent service they gave. I would highly recommend them for business or pleasure purposes.

Let me just start by saying "book this company". I hired Killarney Tour & Taxi at the recommendation of a friend who'd used them about 10 years and they fully met my expectations. Jack Hayden (owner of the company) was our private tour guide for 8 days as we traveled from Dublin, Waterford, Cork, Limerick, Galway, and then back to Dublin. My wife and I had already put together a decent little itinerary, but he had many recommendations of things to add along the way that were off the beaten path and not well known. He was extremely friendly and patient with the fact we had my parents with use that had decreased mobility. He got us as close to the entrances of places whenever feasibly possible and did a great job of communicating anytime he wouldn't be picking us up at the exact location he dropped us at. He arrived early every day and I we never felt rushed. His van was clean and spacious and his driving was fantastic. Had I tried to drive while over there, I can assure you my trip would have been a lot more stressful and a lot less fun. There are really zero negatives I can say about Jack or his company. Money well spent to make my Ireland vacation and my parent's first European vacation memorable. Thank you Jack. I will gladly recommend you to any and all friends I have heading your way.

We had booked 3 private car trips with Killarney Tour and Taxi during port calls on a recent cruise. Unfortunately after our ship sailed the cruise line announced they were changing the 3 ports where Killarney Tour and Taxi was going to meet us. On short notice Jackie at Killarney Tour and taxi rebooked us on all of the new dates and at new ports of call. Exceptional service! She even contracted with a competitor during our rescheduled day in Belfast so that we would not miss out on any of the 3 private car tours. All three tours were great and for the 6 of us more economical than the ships touring excursions

We had 4 separate tours and transfers with Jack, including the Ring of Kerry as well as drop offs at hotels and train stations. All of the drivers arrived early in clean and spacious vans. We had way too much luggage, but the drivers were all too happy to accommodate us. They even dropped half the family at one castle and the other 1/2 at another ! They were also very knowledgeable about Ireland and had great sense of humors! I highly recommend booking with this company, they can get you anywhere you want to go and on time!

Our family of 7 adults were so happy to be back in Ireland, and to enjoy another day tour with Jack. This time we went to the Beara Peninsula. We had a great day. It is so nice to have a more personalized tour, and to be able to choose extra time or less time in certain places, or even to see places not necessarily on the itinerary. Sure, it will cost you more than the big bus tours, but the very comfortable van that can hold 7 people, can make it into places the buses cannot. It is well worth the extra money. Seeing Jack again just made us smile, as he was part of some of our great Ireland memories from 2019. Thank you again Jack. We highly recommend Killarney Tour and Taxi service.

My wife and I recently took a cruise around the island of Ireland and employed Jack Hayden to provide transportation and tours from each stop on our cruise. We had toured with Jack a few years ago on a less comprehensive trip to Ireland and found his driving, knowledge of the country and it's highlights as well as his company excellent in every way. After booking the cruise I contacted Jack who was unfazed by the idea of following our cruise ship from port to port and helped to plan a wonderful itinerary. It is a relief to plan with Jack because there seems to be no day trip or itinerary that is too challenging in contrast to other tour guides I have worked with who can be very strict about the logistics of a tour. Jack provides fast feedback to any questions regarding the tour, maintains close contact until the tour begins and relates in a warm, friendly and fun manner. We highly recommend Jack and Killarney Tours without reservation!

When I decided to take a family trip to Ireland with my husband, three girls, and my mom, I knew hiring a driver would be the best way for us to see County Kerry. I am so happy that I chose Killarney Tour & Taxi! We booked a transfer from Dublin airport to our hotel in Killarney, Ring of Kerry, Dingle Peninsula, Gap of Dunloe, and transfer back to Dublin with sightseeing stops along the way. We saw so many awesome sights! Jack was our driver for the entire trip and he really took care of us. His restaurant recommendations were great and I loved that I didn’t have to worry about anything while on our day trips! When we travel back to Ireland, I will absolutely book again with Killarney Tour & Taxi!
