Irish Jaunting Car Ride

Tonight, I am reporting an Irish Jaunting Car ride as experienced at Muckross House, Killarney National Park.

Jaunting Car at Muckross House.

Location is close to the town of Killarney on the shores of Lough Leane in S.W.Ireland's County Kerry. Killarney is a stop on the Ring of Kerry scenic drive.

A jaunting car is a light, two-wheeled carriage for a single horse with a seat in front for the driver. The vehicle usually has seats for two or four persons placed back-to-back with the foot-boards projecting over the wheels.In days past the jaunting car was a common conveyance for persons in Ireland. 

Here is a video clip
