Horse Carriage Ride Photo, Killarney, Ireland
The horse carriage ride has been a tradition for 50 years. It's such a great experience to ride the horse carriages in Killarney, Ireland. The tour guide takes you on a scenic tour in the park of 25,000 acres. One hour through the national park: 1 to 4 people 40 euros, 5 people and over 10 euros each; 2 hours to muckross house through the national park: 1 to 4 people 60 euros including torc waterfall and muckross gardens 80 euros. You see many amazing things, so it's worth the euros! The ride is about an hour long. Contact the phone number above for reservations and meeting places. I highly recommend this!
