This was an all-day tour, leaving Cork at 07:45 and with a 10 hour duration. The driver (John) was funny, informative and not at all worried about expressing his rather blunt views. He was, as he said many times, having a bad week but his humour was infectious and he kept me entertained throughout the journey.
The trip went to the Cliffs of Moher, to the Burren and to Bunratty Castle (though there was no time here to look around the Castle itself. All three sites are superb - especially the Cliffs of Moher - and the only thing that dragged it down for me was that when I booked the tour it included Limerick Castle and Blarney Castle. The itinerary had been changed (probably due to time) but it was disappointing not to have them included.
The only issue that John had that detracted from the day was the tardiness of some of the people on the bus. In the end, he left 5 people at the Cliffs of Moher because they failed to arrive by 15 minutes after our stated time to leave. (They later claimed that John had told them the wrong time - this was massively unfair, especially as they spoke to another Paddywagon driver when they turned up at 13:00 and they said to him that they had been told to be back by 12:30!!) By the last stop (Bunratty), John had given up trying to keep to a schedule - and I can't say that I blame him.
However, this was a minor issue that marred a very good tour. Paddywagon (and John in particular) did a great job and it was an interesting, spectacular and informative day
