    Our driver Cash was fantastic! He made the trip so much fun for our group of 4 senior citizens. Always made sure we got off the bus safely, made recommendations where to get ice cream and dinner. His narration was perfect along the roads and we felt we saw so much in our 3 days with him. Every B&B we stayed in was wonderful. No complaints, and breakfasts were awesome. Loved the Randy Leprechaun. I'd highly recommend Paddywagon for touring Ireland. We are thinking of a longer tour with Paddywagon next time!

  • 29-Sep-2022

    I was lucky enough to get Cash as my driver again! He was my driver on my Blarney tour and he is not only a really great driver, he is fun, engaging, and has a knack for making everyone comfortable. His stories are hilarious! This tour was fantastic! We did have some bad weather for the Cliffs of Moher but Cash managed to make silver linings happen! Definitely go on tour with Paddywagon. The B+B' s were nice, all the stops were breath taking and it was the highlight of my last days in Ireland! Traveling solo is easy with a tour. Just put yourself out there and you will have a blast!

  • 29-Sep-2022

    The bus trip was really great. We would recommend the 3 day trip and Cash made it really fun. We felt like we saw everything advertised and more. The B&B accommodations were really nice. Everything was on time and we always felt safe.

  • 22-Sep-2022

    What an amazing experience! I can’t thank Cash, our driver, enough. He made the whole trip funny lively and all around entertaining. I have done a tour before and it didn’t compare to how fun this one was. I will for sure book again and if possible request to have Cash as a driver.

  • 19-Sep-2022

    Great three-day tour of southern Ireland from Dublin! Thank you to our drivers Eduardo (day 1) and Cash (days 2 and 3) for sharing all of their knowledge and taking us to amazing places (some even not mentioned in the itinerary). On my own I could not have seen as much as I did on this tour. This is my third tour with Paddywagon and one of my favourites I've done!

  • 18-Sep-2022

    Ha sido un viaje realmente estupendo. Ha superado ampliamente nuestras expectativas. Todo muy organizado, el tiempo aprovechado al máximo, los alojamientos impecables…Y el guía, hey Dany!!, para llevártelo a casa. Siempre atento con todos, el mejor contador de historias que he conocido, la música en el bus para todos los públicos (familia china, pareja de chilenos, grupo de jóvenes indios, nosotras dos españolas talluditas…) Desde cualquier punto de vista un viaje inolvidable. ¡Gracias!!

  • 14-Sep-2022

    This 3 day trip really made our vacation to ireland so wonderful. Our driver/guide Cash really enhanced the trip even more by being an excellent driver, keep us entertained throughout the trip, having great taste in music and most importantly keeping us safe and sound. There were so many beautiful things to see along the way and we had ample time at locations that we stopped at to enjoy. I highly recommend this trip and would do it all again!

  • 03-Sep-2022

    This 3 day tour super worth it and made my time in Ireland unforgettable! Also, it made totally difference to have Danny as our tour guide and his "conversation can" on the bus. He engaged well the group, gave all explanations possible and the tour spots proposed were amazing!! He was very considerate with the group and I enjoyed a lot.. these 3 days were intense and it seemed a lot more!! If you decide on this tour and have the luck to have Danny together, you are not going to regret.. If you go for the Economic option with B&B, both places were good and clean, the 1st place in Galway had a traditional Irish breakfast well served with buffet options, the 2nd one from paddywagon not so good and very limited, but rooms were bigger. Overall, totally recommended it and make sure to put lots of questions on Danny's conversation can, he will love it..

  • 01-Sep-2022

    Our guide, Danny, was so knowledgeable and a great story teller. He was very funny and kind. He made the trip memorable. He organized the trip so well; we didn't have to worry and he was easy going. He kept us going and gave lots of great suggestions. He loves picnics and we were able to picnic each day of the trip in beautiful locations. There was always enough time to do all the things we wanted to do. He was very organized.

    I joined this tour as a solo traveler in the "backpacker" option. The tour includes many great foto stops but this also gives it a fast pace. The hostels for the two nights were nice and mostly clean, the breakfast was not great (only toast and nutella/jam) or cornflakes with cow milk, so I recommend packing some extra food for the mornings. Our driver and guide Vincent was very funny and helpful. Sometimes I wish there would have been more explanations and a few more hints (like when you are stopping for a bathroom break or to grab food, letting people know when the next opportunity will be so they can judge appropriately). The hostel set up, the group dinner and karaoke on day two really set up a great group experience so you'll easily meet people even as a solo traveler. The Irish landscape is gorgeous but a bit repetitive, so if you are on a tight budget, I recommend skipping day three. The ring of kerry was great but Killarney is basically just a tourist town with overpriced shops and restaurants. Galway and Cliffs of Moher however are a must see. Thanks Paddywagon Tours for a great experience, I would definitely book with you again!
