Intrigued by Ireland
My group were recently in Killarney and enjoyed a tour with Killarney Jaunting Cars, we organised a joint ticket which allowed us to take a jaunting car ride through Killarney on a horse and carriage, followed by a cruise on Lough Lein, This was a lot of fun and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
