  • This is a MUST! Our tour guide was fantastic! This tour, while lengthy, had the perfect mix of driving and stopping. We stopped in several little towns as well as several beautiful photo opps. My husband and I both agree this has been the highlight of our trip so far!

  • Good job! Enjoyed the trip - guide Collum was funny and knowledgeable, bus was big and comfortable. Paddywagon tours are better than Extreme Ireland tours.

  • Fantastic!!

  • This tour was amazing - we saw so many beautiful villages, and breathtaking scenery. After driving from Cork to Killarney town, our first stop, our driver Paul gave a great commentary on all the places we passed through, as well as stopping regularly for refreshments, photographs etc. Stops included Ballincleave, with the Red Fox Inn their speciality is Irish Coffee! and Kerry Bog Village, and an hour at Waterville, on the edge of the Dingle Peninsula, for lunch. Our last stop before returning to Cork was the Torc Waterfall in Killarney National Park. Paul was very knowledgeable and naturally had a great sense of humour! I am of Irish descent, living in the UK and had been to Cork before, but this area was all new to me and to many of the passengers. We all thoroughly enjoyed it, and it was great value for money. I would thoroughly recommend this tour!

  • Great tour but too many little stops that were filled with street sellers. Would have preferred fewer stops and more time in Waterville for lunch! Overall nice enjoying the scenery and not driving.

  • This was an incredible tour with a vey knowledgable guide Colim I believe. He provided insightful commentary about all of the areas we passed through, described Irish history, folklore, and suggested additional books that related to the area. The trip was engaging and interesting. I would definitely rebook a tour with the company as I learned much about Ireland and the area.

  • The daily tour to Ring of Kerry from Cork with Paddywagon is absolutely STUNNING!Our driver and guide,Colm,made it more interesting and he introduced us to a full Irish experience with his stories,advices,jokes,professionality and cultural explanations.I hope you will have Colm as guide in your trip

  • Joe O'Reily is the perfect guide. He's from the area and has real life experiences. Loved him. Stops were great and he knew the tricks to avoid traffic areas. Would highly recommend this trip to anyone. It was beautiful and full of the Irish natural experience we hoped for.
    Slight changes-- disappointed no narration for the two travel hours coming and going from Cork to Killarney. Since we had just arrived, we would have loved any Ireland information. Maybe make up an audio for those two hours full of history or about the area. Wish the hour in Killarney were at a different stop or shorter. Kind of felt we did not really start the journey until hour of riding and hour of waiting for other bus was over.

  • Very good tour, well guided by amusing and informed driver, Collom, I learnt a lot about Irish history, geography, culture and folklore. Beautiful views and plenty of stops. An 11 hour day but not tiring because there was so much to see.

  • We took the Paddywagon tour to the Ring of Kerry. The driver was good and offered interesting stories along the way. The scenery was wonderful and there were a number of stops along the way to take beautiful photos.
