This was a full day in the Killarney National Park which is like heaven on Earth. Girard was very knowledgable about the area, easy to understand, a good driver, and very considerate. This tour was top notch. Everything was organized for us from the jaunting car to lunch to the boat ride so we didn't have to worry about a thing and just enjoyed ourselves. If you are in Killarney, this is a must do and Girard is the perfect guide to take you.
