Kerry Coaches 60 Years and 3 Generations


Kerry Coaches’ journey began in 1957,  when Johnny Buckley and his wife Mary B first provided transportation to visitors in the Killarney area. This was with the traditional horse and cart (locally known as a Jaunting Car). This quickly increased and in 1960 incorporated their first vehicle, a Ford Zephyr. Throughout the 1960’s and 1970’s “JJ Buckley & Sons”, as it was then known continued to expand and added 3 new VW Microbuses.

By the end of the Millennium, Kerry Coaches began to outgrow the old office and built the custom designed facilities. We are proud to still call them home today. Located just on the edge of Killarney town it now boasts state of the art garage facilities, a modern office and an expanding team of 100 plus staff

Our Fleet

Today, after 60 Years, it is an awarding winning company with over 75 luxury vehicles. Johnny Buckley (named after his Grandfather), became transport manager in 2009. He is the 3rd generation of Buckley to join Kerry Coaches.  Consequently the company has continued to be at the forefront of innovation and service both Nationally and Internationally.
