My assumption was that on the bus the driver/guide would be telling you stories, facts, and history about the areas we were driving through. It turned out the driver drives you to Blarney Castle and drops you off for two ish hours, picks you up and drives you to Cohb and drops you off for two ish hours, and then drives you back to Cork. While the convenience of getting driven to each spot was nice, you could have probably done the same thing on public transit for much less money.

Also although it is a very short trip and you probably won’t even need it, the bus does not have wifi as it claims to in the description

Blarney Castle and Cohb were beautiful and 100% recommend checking them out!

We were picked up off the Carnival Pride in the Port Cobh. Even tough we got in late, DJ and the Paddywagon team did a great job of getting us on the road. DJ knew a shortcut to the Castle and we were able to beat the Carnival busses, even though they had a head start. He had tickets in hand which allowed us to get right into the grounds. We headed to the Castle and had a short, 20 minute, wait/climb time to the top. When we made it back down the other busses had arrived and the wait time was well over an hour. That gave us time to walk the grounds and then have lunch in a local pub while others were rushed from the Castle to busses. We then drove to Kinsale, a small coastal town with great shops and places to eat. DJ has a vast knowledge of the Country with a sharp wit and wry sense of humor. His driving skills, which are formidable, allowed us to safely navigate a couple of tricky detours courtesy of the local Constables. Paddywagon is very respectful of your time and they go the extra mile to ensure you have a great day. We are very appreciative of their hard work.

Good driver and orientation yo the places of visit. Just the long wait to get onto Blarney castle is a waste of time. Little time for Cobh too. So it's time factor. Too short.

I booked this tour via Get you Guide and in the itinerary was a duration with 8 hours but we came 6 hours later back to Cork. In Blarney and also in Cobh we didn‘t have that much time and had to rush to catch the bus. Blarney Castle ist a huge place and I couldn‘t see all of it cause we had only 2!! hours time for that. Also in Cobh the time was too short. Poor organisation. Why do you write 8 hours of duration on your itinerary and make only 6? Don‘t do this tour guys. Go with the bus and have the time you need to see everything. Blarney castle ist so beautiful and so nice to see. This tour was waste of my money. Not recommend this tour!

The driver was very nice. I wish he would have narrated and given more information on the ride. Overall, it felt just like a bus ride to both Cobh and Blarney. I also wish we would have had more time in Blarney instead of so much time in Cobh.

We’ve been on many bus tours and this one is the worst of the worst. The bus was not a coach, more like a run down city bus. Uncomfortable, no air control, and rode like it was on square wheels. Worst of all because it was full my wife and I had to sit in two seats that faced the back of the bus! Definitely didn’t help with dealing with our rising nausea.

To make matters worse the driver/tour guide drove like he wanted to be somewhere else. He was grouchy to the point tourists were afraid to ask him questions! Apparently he is also thin skinned because at one point he announced “if all of you are going to talk then I am not”, which took all of us by surprise since he wasn’t saying anything before that anyway.

I would definitely check out the other tour operators before booking with Paddy Wagon.

Blarney Castle known by many the world over is somewhat disappointing in that it is run-down in the first place. The Blarney Stone a long climb to thee top is hardly worth the trip let alone the kiss. There are millions of lipstick stains to taste if you opt for the kiss. Good luck to all those that make the trip, sorry for the disappointment. Enjoy the stores and knits that can be found anywhere throughout the world.

I actually enjoyed the gardens more than the castle itself. The castle was great too. There were a few times I was a bit uncomfortable with the heights and you’re standing in line a bit. So if you’re afraid of heights, I’d suggest holding off on this one. Otherwise it was a good visit.

Me and my wife have join this relax tour in August. Everything is great and we have enough time to travel in Blarney Castle. However, if would be better if we can have more time in Cobh.
And it is better to pre-order the ticket of Titanic Experiences before the tour. Since, we haven’t do so and we cannot have the experience immediately. So we need to stay behind at cobh.

This was a great day. We were dropped off at Blarney Castle just before 10. Our driver told us to be back at the coach for 1200. Exploring the castle was amazing. I recommend walking up the 100 or so steep stairs to kiss the Blarney Stone. The views are absolutely worth it.. Whilst you're there, check out the dungeon and the cave.

At 1200 we made our way to Cobh. It's a 45 minute journey so if you're travelling solo like me, have a book or music for the journey. St Colman's Cathedral is up some steep stairs but once you get to the top it's a majestic church. Don't leave Cobh without going to the Titanic experience. You'll be back in Cork by 4pm

Overall, a wonderful day. If however you're a vegan like me, it might be worth it to have a packed lunch. Whilst there were plenty of options in Cork, I couldn't find any vegan friendly places in Cobh but luckily I had some snacks.
