This company has some of the best guides I've encountered anywhere. Out of our three tours 2 of our guides were outstanding. Val (Don't call him Valentine or you'll get left in Cork.) was the single most engaging, fun, and charismatic guide. John was also great but a little less fun. Our third guide was a little less...friendly. Keep in... More

Overall fair. Price is good for a full day, But the bus is not well equipped for long drives, which this was. Seats are very cramped, and forget it if the person in front of you reclines (which was unfortunately the case for me). No cup holders, no seat pockets. Our first stop was to a gas station one hour... More

Honestly, I couldnt recommend the 6 day trip any more highly. Went on the trip with 48 other gap students and loved it from the first minute getting on the bus. The awesome tour guide John Kelly kept us thoroughly safe, entertained and happy throughout, and provided so much craic. Cheers Paddywagon, the people I went with and especially JFK

Firstly be prepared for a long day of touring.. but also be prepared for some of the most breathtaking (and windiest) places that you'll ever see. Starting at 7:30 in the morning, the Paddywagon green bus with its one-man-show driver/tour-guide/entertainer Fintan picked us up near the Molly Mallone statue (easy to locate). A funny, knowledgeable and quite patient tour guide,... More

We took the day tour to the Giant's Causeway/Belfast from Dublin and it was wonderful. It was my first coach tour (I'm usually a go explore on my own kind of person) and I just may be sold on future tours! Our guide Gary was great and we stopped at many interesting places. As I'm sure with most tours like... More

We had a tour around Ireland with this company and we do nor regret it! We've seen some picturesque places and had the best tour guide yet! His name is Desmond. He gave us a comprehensive lesson about Irish history, he taught us some words in Gaelic and even sang to us on his old family violin! We had a... More

SO glad we took a day to tour the countryside. We left Dublin to tour Wicklow & Kilkenny. I could have spent more time in Kilkenny and less in Wicklow - but that doesn't change my review. Kilkenny Castle was really neat to see. Wanted to see the stained glass at black abbey but ran out of time. Had lunch... More

We went on tour by bus to the Cliffs of Moher and got the best tour guide/bus driver/comedian you could get. His name was Val and made the 12 hour journey so entertaining, he was very funny and tried his best to make you feel comfortable. Apart from that, what the tour really is for, visit the Cliffs of Moher,... More

This was a fabulous day trip to the Cliffs of Moher from Dublin. Our driver was very interesting and provided a lot of insight as we were driving through the countryside. The timing was great, with plenty of comfort stops, but also something interesting to see at each stop. My only request would have been skipping the first castle to... More
