Killarney Day Tour

Killarney Day Tour is family run and has been in our family for 5 generations. Dermot and Donal O’Donoghue have been running the tours through the Lakes of Killarney for the last 50 years now. Both themselves and their families have been fishing, rowing and tour leading on the lakes all of their lives.

Our business is unique in that we operate tours on the Lakes which flow through the entire National Park in Killarney. We operate day tours which incorporates all 3 Lakes and the works famous Gap of Dunloe as well as shorter trips to Dinis Cottage and Innisfallen island.

Our boat drivers are themselves either part of our family or have spent many years on the Lakes through fishing, rowing or guiding.


We consider ourselves incredibly fortunate to operate such a business in this beautiful part of the world. We take great pride in providing our guests with an unforgettable experience through story telling and explaining some of the local history.

Unfortunately the weather doesn’t always cooperate with our plans but it does mean that the tour is different every day. There’s always a chance to see some of the local wildlife and we appreciate it all the more when we get some sunshine!

Come and join us on one of the oldest tourist excursions in Europe and travel through the amassing UNESCO Biosphere site which is the Killarney National Park. No guarantees on good weather but wrap up well and am unforgettable day awaits!
