        The Historic Dingle Peninsula is an Amazing Place!
        This was a beautiful trip to the most westerly part of Europe! I learned facts like that and so much more. This was my 2nd trip with Kevin, the guide from Paddywagons. He drove safely and calmly on the Slea Head, which I appreciated! Those roads! Wow! We had a stop at the Beehive Huts and Inch Beach. We had lunch in the gorgeous city of Dingle! More stories and information from Kevin. We also stopped at the Fertility Door in the Sea for photos. We saw the Sleeping Giant. A soft, lovely day!

        This was such a fun tour! Rory was a great guide as well. The views are awesome, and it happened to be a gorgeous day which made it even better. This was a spur of the moment decision for me, and it ended up being a highlight of my trip. Thank you!

        Wonderful Adventure on the Slea Head
        Cannot recommend this tour enough. It was enough to do in half-a-day which was perfect for us as we were trying to cram a lot in our trip. Worth seeing for the lambs alone, but all the sites were incredible. Rory did an amazing job entertaining as well as giving us much information on the history of the area. He also gave us great recommendations for things to see as we toured Ireland. Trip and drive were very comfortable, so if you are worried about being in a larger van driving down the smaller Irish roads. Drivers were excellent at navigating the area. Ample time to see the sites at each stop, so it never felt rushed.

        Perfect way to see so much beauty!
        What a wonderful way to drive the Slea Head road and learn about the area! This gave my husband and I a break from driving and an opportunity to learn from a local. Rory did a great job! Thanks!

        Rory was incredible! He gave us so much information about Dingle, the history, culture, and people. Additionally, the views were great and it gave us a break from driving narrow roads.

        Delightful drive and driver
        We opted for a 14:00 tour to allow us time to enjoy our breakfast at the b&b and walk around town. The tour included a pickup and drop off at our b&b which was helpful. The van held a total of 12 people and was nice and clean Our tour guide and driver Des was such a delight and good-humored. He provided nice background information about the town and the sights we saw. He never rushed us at the stops and we had plenty of time enjoying slea head. I highly recommend this tour group.

        Give yourself a break from driving and book this tour!
        I'm not big on group tours, but after navigating on the narrow roads, I booked this last minute to have a break from driving and stress. This tour surpassed my expectations! We were with eight total people. Our driver was skilled, funny, and informative. He was open to making stops based off of our requests. The Slea Head drive is breathtaking, and I'm so glad my husband and I both go to enjoy it without the stress of trying to pass giant tour buses on a tiny road on the edge of a cliff! Props to Mike for his sense of humor and driving skills! We booked through Viator because I was searching last minute and that showed up first, but it's cheaper to book directly through the tour company. Strongly recommend!

        Great tour - highly recommend!
        We went on the 3-hour Slea Head tour with Rory and a small group. The tour was really well done, Rory gave us a lot of local history on the tour, and he stopped several times so we could get some amazing photos! We were very glad to not have been driving ourselves on the road (lots of hairpin turns!) and it was a very relaxing tour - very glad we booked it!

        Best way to do the Slea Head Peninsula
        My husband had been doing the driving in Ireland and I thought he would enjoy the Slea Head drive more if he didn't have to drive it. I selected this company based on reviews and they are all true! Des was our driver and guide, and he was amazing! I can't believe how he was able to manage the traffic on the very narrow road with ease while telling us entertaining stories and filling us in on the history. I highly recommend it!

        Such a fun and informative tour!
        We had considered driving the Dingle peninsula ourselves but decided we wanted someone to tell us about it. Des did a great job, and we learned a lot both about the culture and history and about Ireland in general. The minibus fits 11 people so it’s not a huge tour, and we got to all the best stops along the way. Holding the baby lambs was a real highlight and yes - the brownies are the best ever. You won’t be disappointed!

      We wanted to visit Dingle and the Dingle Penninsula but it was not included on the 10 day tour we booked. Rory was easy and very responsive to my inquiries. The tour and our transportation was easy to book.
      Collin met us at Shannon Airport and took us directly to Dingle. He was a welcome site after a long overnight flight from the states. Colin took great care of us giving suggestions of things to see and do in Dingle. The next day he gave us a wonderful tour of the Dingle Penninsula, chock full of information and timed perfectly for our needs. Overall a great first experience in Ireland!

      My family and I visited Dingle in October of 2019. Planning from America is not always easy, but Rory reduces the stress by his quick responses via email and helped us plan our transportation tailored to our travel plans. We used Dingle Slea Head Tours for airport transportation to and from Shannon airport, to the Cliffs of Moher and the Dingle Peninsula Tour. We had the same driver Paudie the whole week, he was the best! We had great conversation, he gave us great tips and we even still talk to him via social media. We have family going back to Ireland and they have already booked Dingle Slea Head Tours. I would highly recommend Dingle Slea Head Tours for anyone looking for transportation and tours. They helped make our trip once in a lifetime and they treated us like part of their family.

      My husband and I booked this private tour upon arriving in Dingle in September and were fortunately able to grab the afternoon timeslot after Slea Head Tours had a last minute cancellation. At first, we thought four hours was going to be a long time for just the two of us going on this tour, but it actually allowed us to take our time and truly experience the beauty of the peninsula. Our driver was Des and he was a wealth of knowledge. Being a local resident of Dingle, he was so easy to chat with (we bonded over Philly - where we're from) and he made sure to point out significant sites and historical facts as we drove along the peninsula. He let us know that he'd be happy to pull over if there was anything we wanted to stop and see, and he even made some suggestions of his own that we wouldn't have thought to do (don't want to spoil anything!) which we so appreciated. We are not big on tours, but we wanted a break from driving ourselves and are so happy we booked this private tour and got Des as our guide. I would recommend to anyone to spend a little extra for the luxury of being able to sit back and let a local guide take you around. This was truly one of the highlights of our road trip around Ireland and we would do this again. Thank you, Des!

      Our family of five (kids aged 12, 15, and 16) booked the four hour private tour of Slea Head Peninsula in July 2023. The driver Des was fantastic! He’s lived in the Dingle area over thirty years and shared a wealth of information about its history, culture, and current state of affairs. He was punctual, precessional, and gregarious. He took us to fabulous sites and times the trip for the best views according to the weather. He gave us great suggestions for evening entertainment as well. This tour was far and above the family favorite. Highly recommend the trip and Des if you can get him!

      Because we were 6 of us and wanted my husband to enjoy being a passenger, we booked a private tour through this company. I cant say enough about the tour, Des our tour guide and driver knew everything about the Dingle Pennisula - he grew up there! He was a world traveler but settled back in his home town and loves sharing it with others! He knew just where to stop, gave us time we wanted for pictures and exploring - even drove back on his own to get my purse when I left it at the sheep farm we visited.

      Highly recommend you get your own tour if you have over 4 people!!

      Rory, our tour guide, was Amazing! He has great communication skills, is very knowledgeable, friendly, and made the tour lively and fun-filled for everyone.
      As for the tour sites, they were all very diverse and unique. Each activity/place we visited showcased a different historical, environmental, or cultural aspect of the Dingle Peninsula, which allowed all of us to truly immerse ourselves in the experience.
      Finally, Rory's van was clean, comfortable for all 6 of us, and everything was Covid-19 compliant. My family and I was would definitely recommend Dingle Slea Head Tours to family and friends of all age groups as the experience is one that will stay with us forever. We would definitely go on more tours of Ireland with Dingle Slea Head Tours, and are already looking forward to our next one.

      This is a excellent and well designed tour. Rory was very easy to communicate with and guided us to exactly where to meet, even guided us to appropriate parking for the day while we would ride with him. Rory asked about our interests and created a 4 hour flow to ensure we saw everything we had asked and did not even know about, about and never rushed us. Just a wonderful way to see and experience Dingle. If you are in Ireland, Rory should be your go to tour operator. Relaxed and enjoyable.

      On this, our second time on the Dingle peninsula, we took a friend’s advice and booked a private tour with Dingle Slea Head Tours. Our tour guide, Des, was friendly, knowledgeable and hilarious. He gave us a quick tour of the charming town of Dingle before taking us on a spectacular, four-hour drive that included Conor Pass, a climb to a beautiful scenic mountain lake, a walk on Coumeenole Beach, a view of the beautiful Blasket Islands and—most amazingly—a chance to hold a baby lamb. Des gave us a valuable taste of Irish history and made stops at hidden scenic vistas we never would have discovered on our own. It is no doubt the best way to enjoy the Dingle peninsula.

      This tour was recommended to us as a "do not miss" with regards to a visit to Dingle.
      So, we booked, the 4 of us for $200. Easy booking. Rory communicated with us quickly and clearly. And, Rory was our guide. He picked us up right in front of our airbnb, 10 min early, but patiently waited. The car was comfortable and so was he. An excellent driver, he navigated the challenging roads with ease. His info was clear, and that genuine Irish humor accompanied his info, questions, and comments. Just perfect. When we come back in a few years, we'll do this again, because there is always so much to learn about this beautiful country. Until we meet again... be well, Rory, and continued success to your business!
