Gerard, our Ring of Kerry driver/guide, was absolutely wonderful and I would highly recommend him to anyone! What a kind and hospitable man! He was a wealth of knowledge and from what I hear from the locals, he's a great singer and owns a B&B (although he didn't tell us that - LOL). He's also extremely professional! He's a very charming man! Apparently, he went back to college to get a degree in tourism/hospitality! He must have been an excellent student because he was fantastic as a guide!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi I will have to get after Kevin in that wonderful Hotel The Aghadoe Heights, he has to be the local. I am so happy you liked your tour and you never said a word about the tour of the chocolate factory and all the free tasting we did . I love sharing this great country and each and everyday I see something new to share . You know I also learn so much from those I tour with ,a great experience. Thanks Gerard .

Dear Gerard & Ann, Our Ring of Kerry Tour was everything we had hoped for and more. What a delight to be able to sit back and enjoy the scenery rather than worrying about driving and directions! We enjoyed every minute. Your expertise in choosing the right stops was greatly appreciated. Thank you for seeking our input as to where to stop and what to do. Ann, your driving was excellent! :) We made a fantastic choice in taking your lovely tour. We have memories to last a lifetime. Kind Regards, Jan Shawgo

Gerard is 'the' guy to go to. He listened carefully to what I am interested in and constructed the perfect tour for me. He's very charming in that Irish way, and a pleasure to be around and he knows when to stop talking, which most guides don't. He went out of his way to pick me up the next day to make my solo adventures much easier on me. I offered to pay and he said no, which is really refreshing. He also made great suggestions on how I could spend the rest of my time in Ireland.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Patrick Thank you for a great review . I hope you enjoyed your tour of the Gap of Dunloe and Lakes of Killarney. It was great to show you Dingle one of the places that I love . Great tour and great company . Enjoy the rest of your tour of Ireland and I was happy to help with your "must see places in this great Island of Ireland . Gerard

Gerard took my mom & I on a tour from Killarney through the area around the Dingle Peninsula. He was very knowledgeable about the area, listened carefully to the preferences we articulated & was delightful company. His familiarity with the area allowed him to take us to a few of the lesser-travelled spots in the area, we appreciated this part of Ireland so much more because of his suggestions & careful use of time. He was absolutely wonderful, we'll always remember our lovely day with him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for this great review . Dingle is one of my favourite places outstanding beauty on the Slea Head Drive . Getting to know how a small group of people lived on the Blasket Islands . A wonderful place to share ! Hope you watched the movie Ryan's Daughter Thank you . Gerard
