  • Had a good day. Paddy was very attentive and helpful.

  • Paddy has a great host and did a wonderful job. From the moment we met him at Connolly Station we knew we were in good hands. He was very pleasant, attentive and showed us a good time from Dublin to Wicklow and back again. Couldn't resist shopping in AVOCA and taking 100s of photos of the lovely countryside. A great day.

  • Lovely opportunity to get a small taste of Ireland's countryside. Glendalough was amazing in spite of rain. Paddy, our guide, was cheerful, flexible and well informed.

  • Absolutely the best tour and tour guide we could ask for in Ireland. The whole tour far exceeded our expectations.

  • Very beautiful area with views of the Lakes and a visit to a working wool mill and Glendalough was full of history, The rail tour was great and the tour host was very informative and was great.

  • I had a lot of fun on this tour. Paddy was a really good tour guide. He told us interesting stories, and made sure everybody in the group was included , no one was left behind. The train ride along the coast line was beautiful and the bus tour in the country side was wonderful. I would do this tour al over again.
    Thanks Paddy

  • This tour was very nice. Good to see other parts of Ireland than Dublin. Our guide, Paddy, had a lot of knowledge to share with us along the way.

  • Great guide really tried to show us everything possible. Everything was very well organized for our small group.

  • A wonderful experience. Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Even when public transportation through us a curve he was calm and efficiently rerouted the tour group. The tour itself was amazing. We're big fans of Ballykissangel and it was a treat to see Avoca and have lunch in Fitzgerald's Pub. We highly recommend this tour.

  • Lovely tour guide who was very knowledgeable and friendly. Train trip was comfortable and pleasant. Beautiful scenery.
