Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We did a 6 day tour of all Ireland. Dan was a fantastic driver and tour guide and did his very best to accommodate our requests. 6 days on a bus can be hard, especially one as large as this one - but the sites were all worth it.

    The drawback on the trip was the accommodations. You get what you pay for and considering how inexpensive the trip is, do not expect 5 star accommodations. Our first three nights were great but the trips to smaller towns had us in B&B's which were a little rough for wear for 2 nights. Do NOT do the backpacker version if you can afford it! Lots of people who did it said the accommodations were rough for the backpacker version.

    Other than that great trip and worth the experience!

    Joe picked up my husband, son and daughter-in-law at our hotel in Killarney for our tour of the Ring of Kerry. Throughout the day Joe offered his knowledge of the history of the area and interesting details about the wildlife. His driving is impeccable and the car is spacious. We enjoyed a sheep herding demonstration, the Skellig Information Centre, a visit to the Cliffs of Kerry, and lunch at a local restaurant in Portmagee, Joe also took us on the Skellig Ring where the tour buses cannot go due to the narrowness of the roads. We ended the day with a beautiful drive through Killarney National Park and a view of the lakes. We enjoyed our day with Joe who is fun and personable. Paula M

    I waited two years to come to Ireland .it was so worth it. we saw alot and did alot. Alex was a amazing tour guide he explained the history of the places and the areas that we were in which i loved. My only suggestion is be prepared to be flexable as it says in the itinerary and wear good sturdy shoes..I saw tooo many people in slippers and slides. The cliffs of Mohor were amazing if you get the chance do the boat ride as well. Dingle was great Killarney and the National park was beautiful

    What a fun day! Aiden was a terrific guide/driver, giving us wonderful history lessons as we traveled along the Ring of Kerry. A very relaxing way to see the beautiful sights. Seemed Iike just the right amount of stops along the way.

    Jamie our driver was great...a fun day riding along the Ring of Kerry, but a bit uneventful. I can't blame the tour or diver...it's a nice trip with very cool views, but as I said...uneventful. I really enjoyed the stop in Killarney and would have liked that to be a bit longer (only an hour) as it is a beautiful, quaint town. Jimmy the transport from Limerick to Killarney was very pleasant and really came through when my son left his coat on the bus at the end of the day. Jimmy came to where we were eating and dropped off the coat...as we were heading home to the US the next day it was clutch! Paddywagon tours in general were very helpful and tracked Jimmy down for us! He easily resolved an upsetting issue.

    We had a wonderful day with Brian. We did the Ring of Kerry with a few detours. Brian asked what our interests were and tailored our tour to our days. We had a complete day of sunshine, enhanced by Brian’s sunny disposition.

    We hired Mary for 2 days in July 2022. We did the Ring of Kerry one day and the Dingle Slea Head tour the next day.
    Mary was very pleasant to spend the two days with. She tailored the tour just for us.

    We are a family of 4 (two teens).

    We would recommend Mary!

    Great tour. Small group means you're not always rushing unlike the large group tours. Padraig our driver/ tour guide is brilliant. He's funny, very knowledgeable and loads of stories to tell. Thumbs up for him. Would really recommend this tour.

    This is the BEST way to see the Ring of Kerry. William is extremely knowledgeable about the area and the history of Ireland in general. He took us places where the large tour coaches do not/cannot go, namely the Kerry Cliffs and seeing Skellig Michael. We had as much time as we needed to take in the sights. The convenience of being picked up/dropped off at our BnB was an added bonus. Thank you, William, for a very memorable day! Peter & Maggie

    We had the most amazing experience with Mary on our Ring of Kerry trip. She knew the best spots, the best routes and the most picturesque viewpoints. We had a diverse group of family members and Mary catered to everyone in the group. Our niece won’t stop talking about her “new friend Mary” and our dad won’t stop retelling some of the stories she shared. We feel like we saw everything we wanted to see along the way and were so appreciative of Mary’s expertise in the itinerary! We would NOT have seen half of this stuff on our own and we definitely wouldn’t have enjoyed a tour bus experience. If we come back to Ireland, we will definitely go through Mary for all our tour needs!

    Gerard is truly the best! From the moment he met us at the baggage claim to the last minute of our 4-day tour of the wild Atlantic way , we were laughing and talking as if we had known each other for years. He made my husband and my 2 twenty-something sons feel welcome and immediately at ease and ready for great time. He’s not only a Killarney native but he’s a student of all that is not only Irish history but goes ++ and beyond to understand your history as well. With a humor and familiarity that is so genuine, we could not have asked for more. He touched on everyone’s interest, from my family ties to golf interests to, music, pubs, food and entertainment. He’s a treasure trove of all the best places and makes you feel like you’re not a tourist —even though you are!! Great fun. Can’t write enough to capture the experience. Truly personalized and will only book with him in future. Thank you Gerard for an unforgettable trip!!A+++++

    Mary is our new best friend. She is amazing. She knows everything and everyone. A true native to the country she has incredible knowledge of everything Ireland. She is a hoot and knows where to go and where not to go. One step ahead of the big tours. We spent 5 days with Mary and learned the history of every mile of the countryside. Worth the price and more. We will cherish our time with her. We will be back for a cupa tea soon.

    Our family took a weeklong tour with Paudie covering east, south, and west of Ireland. In addition to being so knowledgeable, Paudie was entirely reliable, consistent, funny, and adaptable. We ran into a problem (our fault, not his!) and he sprang into action to figure out what would be most helpful to us. Having this kind of trust proved to be so important, and transformed our experience! Highly recommend Paudie and his tours for either a short or a long journey.
