Know More about this tour

Depart Dublin

We depart Dublin @ 08:00, driving through the midlands down to Blarney, in the beautiful County Cork. We will pass through the Golden Vale, the most fertile lands in all of Europe with green fields as far as the eye can see. We get great panoramic views of the Galtee mountains, as we pass through County Tipperary down to the southern County Cork.

Rock of Cashel

Our first stop will be the world famous Rock of Cashel in Co. Tipperary. One of Ireland's most evocative sites, you can stroll in the footsteps of St. Patrick flanked by ruins, Celtic crosses and round towers. Feel the soul of Ireland. The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the Kings of Munster until they donated the complex to the Catholic Church almost 1,000 years ago for use as a cathedral. One of the best examples of medieval architecture anywhere in Europe. Your entrance fee (EUR 7.00) is included in the price of this tour.

Cork City

Enjoy one hour and thirty minutes at leisure in Cork city, Ireland's southern capital. Highlights include the gourmet English Markets (1788) with a large selection of food stalls representing the best of local produce. Queen Elizabeth II of England thoroughly enjoyed meeting local artisans here on her State Visit in 2011! Also known as the Rebel City for its fierce resistance during the War of Independence, Cork has a vibrant Irish atmosphere. Perhaps sample a pint of Murphy's Irish Stout or pick up a bottle of Paddy Flaherty Irish Whiskey.

Blarney Castle

Famed in song and story, the Irish are famous for the Blarney. Kiss the Blarney Stone and you too will receive this gift of the gab - 7 years of eloquent speech. Situated on the battlements of Blarney Castle you will have to bend over backwards to kiss the stone! You have time to enjoy a stroll around the fabulous gardens of the Blarney Estate or maybe enjoy the beautiful Lake Walk. We also visit the Witches Cave in the castle grounds before having plenty of time to indulge in the tax free shopping haven of the Blarney Woollen Mills and craft shop. Your entrance fee (EUR 13.00) is included in the price of this tour.


Tour ends in Dublin approx. 20:00 in time for evening entertainment.

  • This tour was great. Lots of great sights and hours of great memories. The area is wonderful.

  • Absolutely loved our PaddyWagon tour to Blarney Castle, Rock of Cashel and Cork! Rory was our FANTASTIC tour guide! Total fun, interesting and comfortable....the seafood chowder at The Mill is spectacular, too!!!! This trip is a MUST DO!

  • We weren't highly impressed with Paddywagon tours. The sites,themselves, were amazing as Ireland is such a beautiful and welcoming Country! Our tour guide was not ... he barely spoke and when he did, it was mumbled and hard to understand. The microphone was left on and we could hear him breathing throughout the tour. It was not the best experience. We took three separate tours while visiting, and this was absolutely the least favorite.

  • This tour was a load of sights packed into just a few hours. I really wish we had more time at each area, perhaps splitting this excursion into two different trips. If you have small kids, or have a tendency to take your time at museums/sites, then this one may not be for you.

  • Our tour leader (Tiernan?) made the trip! Loved his stories and friendly manner. He was very knowledgeable and shared fascinating information throughout the day. Without him the long drive in the bus would’ve been dreary! Can highly recommend this tour.

  • A great way to see Ireland and learn the history of the country.

  • Would have preferred more time at the Blarney Castle and less time at other stops.

  • Our tour went to Blarney for 2 hours over lunch time, then we went to Cork for an hour at 3:30ish which was our lunch stop. This was too late for us, and a bit too rushed in Cork. All we had time for was the food. Overall, we had fun and enjoyed the tour.

  • Long day but was very interesting, steps up to the Blarney Stone tho is tight and long and windey.

  • The castle is a must see but surprising so were the stops in Cork and Cashel. Would've like more time to spend in the Woolen Mills.
