      Great!
      What a day we had! Koodos to our driver Paul and guide in training Sinead, they were amazing and kept us informed and laughing all day. We got to Blarney Castle before most of the other tour groups and thereby had an hour wait to kiss the Blarney Stone. The beauty of the Gardens is amazing. We were at the Castle for almost 3 hrs and easily could've spent another few hours. From there, we went to Kinsale via Cork and had an lovely walk around. Great day all around. Highly recommended.

      Blarney and beyond
      The tour lasted most of the day and was filled with much to do. We arrived at Blarney early and avoided the lines. Our coach driver, John, did an outstanding job, professional, friendly and knowledgeable. It was a very good day trip.

      Had a great time at Blarney castle. The guide was able to get us right in. The hike up to the top was a little tough but well worth it.

      Too much time on bus
      The views were fantastic and the tour guide was great, but 90% of the time you will be on the bus. The stops are short and feel rushed, so if you’re great with relaxing in a seat all day it will be perfect. However, if you’re looking to get out and see the sites outside, I wouldn’t recommend.

      Knowledgeable personable tour guide, Paul!
      Paul was wonderful! So informative about the areas we visited. The bus was very comfortable (the brand new smell was there). Blarney castle was amazing but the gardens were even better!(just as Paul said). Kinsale was just as I imagined with the wonderful Irish pubs, one had rugby on the tv!

      Not as advertised. Burren is not included but still on itinerary.
      Tour of cliffs of moher was great but we did not have a tour of Limerick, we just stopped to pick passengers up and we did not at all go to see the Wild Atlantic Way part of the tour that was supposed to include The Burren area. That part was not included at all! We stopped at “The Frantic Chef “restaurant and that was very good, clean and very friendly and helpful. Paddywagon Tours needs to update their advertising as this is misleading and very disappointing .

      Poor day out with this provider
      Not as advertised. They overbooked the tour so instead of a comfortable coach they put us on a double decker city bus. Given the day included a 3 hour journey and a two hour without a stop this was very uncomfortable. Also I booked via trip advisor where the advert for this tour says there is a stop in Limerick to see the sights by the river. This is false, they just stop.ti pick up more passengers. Not a stop to actually see anything The advertised stop at the Burrel is also not included now. They really need to update their advert, it is false advertising The Cliffs of Moher were stunning, as was Bunratty Castle but you only get 90 minutes at each. They also left behind three passengers at the cliffs of Moher. The tour guide forgot to tell people the meet up time soon enough and some people got of the bus. This was awful of her. I've done two trips this week with this company, and they set off without someone 8 minutes early even though he was at thr advertised meeting point and they had parked the bus quite far down the street. I enjoyed the places I did get to see, but I wouldn't book with this company given they twice left people behind, and the city bus double decker isn't acceptable. The tour guide should pay more attention to checking people and numbers as they join the bus rather than play with her phone. Also update your advertisement on trip advisor. Poor trip overall.

      Wonderful tour!
      We just completed our 3rd tour in 3 days with Paddywagon tours from Cork, and can not recommend them enough! We had plenty of time at each stop, to explore, shop or etc. on the cliffs of Moher tour we stopped at the Frantic Chef for lunch, which had lots of delicious choices. If your tour stops here, I would recommend taking your food upstairs to eat, if at all possible, in order to avoid the cramped high table on the main level. Our tour guide for all three tours was DJ, who did a marvelous job of keeping us running on time and safely. My husband and I very much enjoyed chatting with him. My recommendations for this tour: be on time, and be sure to stop at the office to check in before heading to the bus, as they have several buses and stops and you’ll want to be directed toward the right one!

      Great Experiences
      I took two trips with Paddywagon. One to the cliffs of Moher the other one to Blarney Castle. The buses were clean, and in good shape. The drivers were very personable and friendly. I had a great time speaking driver/manager DJ, especially.

      Full of Craic
      Wife and I wanted to see the Ring of Kerry. It was suggested from our host to take the tour bus as the drive can be grueling and tiresome. We took her advice and were not disappointed. Our driver Brian an amazing driver full of fun and history facts was so much fun. I would definitely do this again. In fact the tour feom dublin to giants causeway is on our itinerary. Thank you Brian and PaddyWagon for such a wonderful time.

      The Ring of Kerry tour, Cork
      Our group of 7 took this tour today. It was an amazing experience. Our driver, Joe, was so very knowledgeable about the attractions and the history behind them all. Also very entertaining. If I had to pick something less than desirable, it was the parking, not knowing ahead of time where it was. Highly recommend this tour!

      Enjoy the Full Irish experience on The Ring of Kerry
      We enjoyed every moment of the Ring of Kerry tour from Cork. The scenery was amazing with rushing rivers, green pastures, sheep and baby lambs, the Atlantic Ocean near Dingle, Waterville with its stony beach and best of all Killarney National Park lakes and waterfalls. Our driver DJ was a one man band, comedian and bus driver all wrapped up one talented and good looking Irishman.

      Rink of Kerry
      Expected more from the trip. We were on the bus the majority of the time. Stops were at a few towns and off the side of the road for pictures. Driver was entertaining but would honk the horn and in his haste to be funny would honk the horn in customers ears as they approached the door. If you don’t mink sitting most of the time guess the trip would be for you.

      Unforgettable Trip with a Great Guide
      Absolutely stunning tour for a very reasonable price! The natural scenery along the Wild Atlantic Way was superb and the small towns and villages were equally impressive as they seemed to be brimming with history and beauty. The driver was fantastic and taught us all about the region's connections to Michael Fassbender, Charlie Chaplin and Charles De Gaulle! The replica of a famine-era village was a chilling but essential stop. Finding the Paddywagon bus could've been a bit simpler but it was easy enough and in close proximity to the Paddywagon Tours Centre. I loved the forest/waterfall stop possibly the most but it was all gold, every sight!

    Yesterday we went to a Dingle tour from Cork city centre and it was a complete mess. The only good thing I have to say about it is that the driver was a really nice person, but apart from that initially the tour was just okay, we had a few stops that weren't originally scheduled, but very, almost too short. Everything went south at the end of the day, when the driver left me and other 19 people in Killarney Outlet Centre to take a different Paddywagon bus and go back to the city. The first driver said to wait 15 minutes for it, and left all of us there. We ended up waiting for over an hour when we realized that they basically forgot us there. We tried calling Paddywagon's office a few times in the meantime, and when they finally answered they were clueless and said there had been a miscomunication or something and no one was coming to get us, their solution for us was to get public transportation. No refund for the trouble of course, and we will have to go to the office in person with bus tickets receipt to get at least that money back (hopefully)
    Honestly I never leave reviews but this time it needed to be done.

    abandoned group

    All of us in the group were literally abandoned in another city by the company! we start our tour in cork city. They walked with us for about an hour and got us off a big bus and put the group in a van. We took the tour which sucked because the driver was 15 minutes at each stop and it didn't match what we were sold. however, the biggest problem was that the company again stopped the van on the way back in a city and said it would send another transport to pick us up. That transport never arrived. The entire group waited for the new transport to arrive. It was getting late at night, raining and night. And we realized that we had been abandoned by the company. we had to look for a bus station to take public transport and go back to Cork! not everyone had money to buy another ticket. It was a difficult situation for the entire group taking the tour. We arrived back in Cork around 11:00 pm. We are shocked by the company's lack of commitment and responsibility.

    We did the half day tour starting at Dingle. Picked up at Heatons excellent guest house, drove the headlands in driving rain and wind, but still a fantastic trip. Tour of beehive huts, famed beaches, and Oratory. Spring would be grand with LOTS of fuschias.

    We boarded the Paddy bus 830, for our dingle tour,, at this time we discovered most of the bus were on the derry tour , driver told us the dingle tour guests were to be put on another bus when we got to Kilranney, at kilranney 17 of us were directed on to anther bus operators bus for the dingle tour, this tour ran smoothly,, upon return to Kilranney the driver left us outside the bus station at 430 and told us paddy would collect us 530. 530 came and went with no paddy bus, it turned up 615, we had no paddy rep with us and we had no phone contact from.paddy, we felt abandoned. When the paddy bus arrived the driver said sorry for delay but wasnt interested when i raised a complant about our abandonment, and the fact this tour is not promoted as one where you change buses, driver, told me to put in an email, he was clearly dis interested and took no responsibility..
    Once on the bus i was told one of us 17 had got a text from paddy saying the bus was late. This had not been communicated on, why did paddy not message all of us. It had our mobiles with the bookings. They shouldn't have left it all to one customer to communicate for them,,,It is an unacceptable way to deal with customers, ,, and to not mention the bus change in their publicity is atrocious sneakiness.

    We stumbled across this company while in Cork. We took the trip to the Cliffs of Moher and absolutely loved it. Our driver was entertaining and knowledgeable of local history. Disregard reviews fri people who criticize the company for the weather! Really? It’s Ireland. Dress for rain and wind! It didn’t dampen our spirits. It’s part of the adventure! The busses were clean and comfortable. USB outlets to charge your phone! Free wi-fi onboard. We enjoyed the trip so much that upon our return we booked two more trips the next two days (and asked for and received a discount). Dingle was a great tour. One bus takes everyone on Dingle Tour and Ring if Kerry tour from Cork to Killarney, where the Dingle Tour switches to a different bus. I noticed most people were going to the Ring of Kerry. Just a note: we thought the Dingle tour was much better (scenery-wise). All of our drivers were great. So glad we stumbled across this group.

    Yesterday (23/08/23) I bought a tour from Cork to Dingle. We went to Killarney in a comfortable bus and in the city we changed to a small and uncomfortable van.
    The tour was cool. When we got back to Killarney it was to switch from the van to the bus. We spent 2 hours waiting for the bus to arrive. We were 19 people, one of them called the agency, the same said that no one was going to pick us up, and they told us to go by public transport, which cost 21 euros.
    WE WERE ABANDONED BY THE COMPANY IN THE CITY OF KILLARNEY, it was very cold and raining, I don't speak English, I was terrified, my cell phone battery ran out, when I got on the bus they only accepted cash, I had to borrow it. The tour was supposed to arrive at 6:30 pm and I arrived at 8:20 pm.
    Total disrespect for the customer. I do not indicate!!!!

    Took the Dingle Peninsula Tour from Cork with Paddywagon Tours on June 9th which included the town of Killarney, Slea Head Drive, Inch Beach and the village of Dingle. The tour was excellent - only thing we would change is perhaps skipping the stop at Inch Beach. It is a very quick stop - not enough time to really do anything - think the time could be better spent elsewhere. Our tour guide/driver (Paudie) was wonderful - extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this tour!

    The stops at sights were very short. It is not a standout tour, is just OK. Next time, I will look at minibus tours.

    Despite torrential rain on the day of our tour, the scenery on this trip is absolutely stunning. From Cork we stopped off for an hour in Killarney - lovely place but not much open so early. Fabulous rainbow in the wake of the rain made Killarney even more pretty. Inch Beach was gorgeous - even with the high winds. Slea Head drive through all shades of green and rugged, wild coastlines took our breath away. Dingle is a must - such a quaint village with friendly people and delicious seafood. Would definitely do this with a tour bus as the coastal roads are narrow and winding. Our drivers (John Cork to Killarney & Jimmy Kilarney to Dingle) were fantastic. Very extertaining and informative. We stopped at some amazing vistas en route for photos and even the driving rain didn't dampen our spirits. Highly recommend!
