What to expect
After meeting your guide and group in central Dublin, climb into a comfortable, climate-controlled tour vehicle. Your guide provides commentary for each stop along the way of your tour. First stop at Cork City, where you have time to explore on your own. See can’t-miss highlights including the English Markets, where you can grab lunch with a pint of Irish stout (both own expense). Then pass through County Tipperary’s Golden Vale, enjoying views of Galtee Mountains. Stop at the Rock of Cashel to follow in the footsteps of St. Patrick, passing a collection of ruins, round towers, and Celtic crosses. Head for Blarney Castle for an independent stroll: enjoy the Lake Walk, visit the Witches Cave, and stop to kiss the Blarney Stone to ensure your “gift of gab.” On the way back to Dublin, stop at the Blarney Woolen Mills for some tax-free shopping.

May 2020
"BEWARE" THEY ARE THIEVES, We booked a tour with Paddywagon Tours for May as a part of a British Isles Cruise in 2020. As you know The Cov-19 cancelled our cruise. All of our money was credited by NCL and all tours booked through "Trip Advisor" Paddywagon tours wanted credit card info and was not booking with Trip Advisor. They refused to refund our money claiming their offices were closed. Apparently they are sill closed since my credit card company has never been able to find them or get my refund of $144.00 back. They are Thieves they have no intention of refunding our tour although they have promised many times to do so in e-mails. I will never use Paddywagon ever again. Steve Krupp Galena Ohio

Second Tour & Still Impressed!
Mar 2020
This was my second time taking this tour. I went the first time back in 2018 and came back to Dublin with a group of friends and said 'We have to go'! It was a great time as it was the first. My friends loved it and it definitely made a positive first impression upon them of the people and culture of Ireland! Richard was our driver/guide and he was hilarious. He did a great job of balancing all the driving time with sharing history, good music/videos, lots of funny jokes and the occasional moment of silence . Starting so early in the morning can be hard to wake up and dive in to a full day of lots of talking and walking around so I personally appreciated a few moments first thing to adjust. We got a bit unlucky with the weather the day of our tour but he did a great job of bringing the whole group together to decide how to make the best of it. We ended up cutting our time shorter just slightly at each stop so we had time to stop at a local pub on the way back to Dublin. He was full of recommendations for other sites to see during our stay as well. Thank you Richard and Paddywagon for a great time! Worth the money and would definitely do a third time!

Such a delightful trip through medieval Ireland. I adore Ireland with all my heart and this tour only made that feeling stronger. Seeing the Rock of Cashel was like having a view on an Ireland just starting to emerge from the dark ages. If you close your eyes you can feel the ghosts of Brian Boru and Strongbow there. It was also touching to see the graves of loved ones buried there, some quite recently. The continuity here with the distant past was surprising and showed that the history of the place is alive and ongoing.

Dublin is a gem of a city, but Cork is ideal if you want a breather from the hustle and bustle. Do not go to Cork without stopping for Murphy’s and a bite to eat at Gallagher’s gastro-pub. Very classy, wonderful food, friendly staff, reasonable prices.

You obviously can’t go to Ireland without kissing the Blarney Stone. Bit of a walk to the top of the Castle, but worth it. If you catch it on a slow day when there aren’t many tourists, it’s really a beautiful place.

The best part of the trip, though, was our guide, Dermott (Paddywagon Tours). Very patient, extremely knowledgeable about our Irish history and culture. A true gentleman.

Our driver/guide Richard O’Brien was outstanding. We were never bored as he entertained us on the drive. He helped us at each stop knowing all the details so we could maximize our experience, My personal favorite thing he did for us was to stop just before we arrived at the Rock of Cashel so we could take a picture. I received so many compliments about that picture! I took two trips on Paddywagon Day Tours and would highly recommend them. Both drivers were outstanding and they made my trip to Ireland that much better.

Had a great time with Richard today on our bus tour. In the rain he made the trip quite enjoyable. As we drove into Cork with the rain poring he gave us ideas for lunch and walked us there.

Amazing Value and Phenomenal Driver!
Such a fantastic tour! We had the perfect amount of time in all these wonderful places, and we were able to see so much at a truly amazing value. Our driver was Richard, and he was full of information, a phenomenal driver, and very entertaining! I have another tour booked with Paddywagon on Wednesday of this week for Belfast/Giant’s Causeway, and I hope he’s driving that one too! I will definitely book more tours with them if I come back to Ireland. Thank you for a truly lovely time, Paddywagon!
