  1. Drivers of vehicles of all sorts seem to be rich sources of information, don’t they? What a fun way to travel!

    That looks like so much fun! It’s been years since I’ve been to Killarney and I would so love to take my kids to Ireland.

    I agree, carriages are touristy, but I love them too. The kids love it, it’s fun, and makes sightseeing easy.

    I knew immediately when I read this that I had heard the term jaunting cart before. It’s in a song from the old Disney movie the Gnomemobile. The proper Irish gnomes sing about riding along in a jaunting cart. And now I know what one looks like! Thanks for sharing.

    What fun! Sometimes people get so worked up about not doing the “touristy” thing that they forget they’re usually fun (otherwise why would tourists do them??)
