    Conner and Joe were excellent tour guides. We could have used an extra 30 minutes at Giants Causeway.

    Bus tour (CIE tours was the bomb) to the cliffs. Beautiful views, recommend the trip to see it. Didn't have a lot of time but got some beautiful pics of the cliffs and area around. It was windy but luckily no rain, but would recommend a rain jacket to help with the winds.

    A perfect day spent in Ireland is what you will get on this tour! Our tour guide Melissa and driver Paolo were tremendous! The time spent in Kilkenny and Glendalough are the perfect length and the sheep dog demonstration is the icing on the cake. When you get to hold a baby lamb, how can you go wrong?! Highly recommend this tour!!

    I booked this tour for a group of 10 university students I had in Ireland and Scotland for 10 days. This was our second Paddywagon tour of our trip (we took three with them and one with another company in Scotland) and we didn't think our experience could possibly be as good as our first Paddywagon tour, but it was! Paul was fantastic with our students and the whole bus. He was the perfect blend of humor, information, professionalism, and realism. He really engaged with the whole bus and we learned a lot from him on our great day out. The only recommendation I'd have for this trip to change is to have a little more time in Cork. It was hard for us to get off the bus, get lunch really quickly (at 4pm) and then get back on the bus on time. We managed by just grabbing food at the English Market, but would like to see more of the beautiful city. Overall great day!

    James, our tour guide, was AWESOME! I reached out over a month in advance to several companies as I planned to propose to my girlfriend at the Cliffs and James was the only one who both responded and genuinely seemed excited / willing to help in any way possible. He had champagne and chocolates ready for us after the big moment AND James took numerous photos of us throughout the day. He really did capture our special moment and day perfectly - the photos all turned out great! He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. I highly recommend booking with Liberty Irish Tours if you want a memorable experience.

    A great time! The scenery was fantastic, and our guide Brian told a lot of fascinating stories about Irish culture and history. There was a driver for the bus, John, who did a great job. The tour started at 6:40 AM at the train station. When we got there at 6:10, the greeter was already there with a yellow RailTours jacket on. Then another greeter got on the train with us and made sure we changed trains when we should! So helpful. The bus was quite new and comfortable. We could leave our backpacks on the bus while walking around the sites. Cliffs of Moher were stunningly beautiful. Got back to Dublin on the train at 9:45 PM, and Brian was with us the whole time to make sure we were fine. Highly recommend!

    We had a great tour with our tour guide / driver Aidan - you can really tell that he just loves to show people around his beautiful countries. He told us many interesting facts about Irish culture, along with a great sense of Irish humour. It was also clearly visible that he was genuinely interested in his guests, asking us where we are from etc. Tour itself was really interesting and also not to rushed with regards to timings. We had almost 3 hours to explore Blarney Castle & Gardens, which also allowed enough time to have lunch. However, I would have loved to have more time at the Rock of Cashel than just around 25 minutes. Anyway, that would only mean I will have to come back to this great place - which is not a bad thing after all. I would highly recommend this tour!

    I loved stopping at the smaller cliffs after Moher. The views were amazing and our guide showed us fossils.

    6:45am is an early start, but well worth the effort.
    Get there at 6:30am if possible.
    Patrick (tour guide) and Brian (driver) were absolutely wonderful and went out of their way to make our tour a 5 star experience. When possible, they were able to point out places of interest along the way and slow down so we could snap a quick photo from the bus. At this point I should mention to try to sit on the right hand side of the bus (not behind the driver) to get the best views/photos from your seat on the way up. The way back is not as scenic as they are trying to get everyone back to Dublin at a decent time.

    Important things to note:
    - THEY LEAVE AT 6:50 AM SHARP AND WILL NOT WAIT IF YOU ARE LATE!! (There were 3 people missing when our tour left).
    - We did not book the tour with the Titanic Museum included. That being said, we were offered the option to pay £10 each for tickets (instead of £21.50 at the door). We did and I would highly recommend. We could have used a little more time to read every panel, but worth doing none the less. Afterwards, Brian and Patrick picked us up a the museum and took us to Belfast for the remaining 30min. If you decide not to do the tour, you will have 2 hrs in Belfast instead.
    - Most places will take credit cards, but if you want to add on the Titanic Museum as a last minute add-on, you will need UK currency. There is an ATM at the first rest stop, but they will charge a €2.95 surcharge and don’t forget most credit cards start charging interest immediately for cash advances on a credit card (no interest free grace period until you pay off the entire credit card balance!!), so get some before you go if you can.
    - It cool and windy, so ladies bring an insulated jacket and tie your hair back! ;>)

    Great day, great tour, Richard was easygoing and an excellent driver and guide. The stable was lovely and the ride beautiful. Definitely recommend. And book directly with Hilltop because Viator (or other agency) takes a big cut.

    I really enjoyed this tour! I did a couple others while in Ireland and this was my favorite!! It was with a smaller tour group that we had lots of opportunities to explore with on a fun train ride and bus. The Blarney Castle grounds were BEAUTIFUL, the Castle was interesting, and the stone was 🥴. I loved the small towns we stopped in. The tour guide (Harry??) was so knowledgeable.
    This is also the time to get Aran sweaters! We passed by a beautiful shop that has so many options.
    Definitely would recommend this tour!!!! ❤️

    Patrick was a great Tour guide. He treated us to Irish themed music dependent during the bus ride based on the different areas we visited; gave us plenty of Irish history for the areas we visited; and took photos of us (and even joined me for a photo!) in front of the GOT film sites.

    Matko, our driver, got us there and back safely on timely, and he also slightly modified the route within time constraints to allow avid photographers better views of certain areas during the trip.

    Overall, very happy that we joined Patrick and Matko for this day trip from Dublin!

    Please bear in mind that this may not be the best activity for you or a member of your party have mobility issues or health concerns. Lots of walking with some steep inclines in certain areas.

    Cheers mates!
