Highly recommended! By far the best two parts of the trip were Blarney (the castle was great, but the gardens around it were even better), and our very knowledgeable and entertaining tour guide Bryan. Bryan loved to sing was knowledgeable about everything from ancient ruins to modern politics. Rock of Cashel was good, Cork a bit uninspiring, but the rest was wonderful.

Richard was amazing! Best tour guide as of yet. He was funny, informative, and entertaining and he is really what makes this tour worth the trip. The scenery was gorgeous but he is the reason to take this tour. I learned so much about Ireland and history as well as the people. Well worth the trip.

Paddywagon Tours is the way to go! Our bus driver/tour guide Frank was the highlight. So witty, funny, and enlightening on all things Ireland, from the famine, to the Troubles, to general history and comedy. Blarney was beautiful and the weather was perfect. You can’t go wrong with this tour.

Ok trip, but not my favorite
Barbara_C
, Jul 2022
The trip was a disappointment for a few reasons. 1. The driver should have had a tour guide with him so he did not have to do all the work. He was a very nice man and did his best. 2. The lack of clarity as to which of the stops was best for having a full lunch could have been better. We are not aware we would have more time in Cork to have a sit down meal, so grabbed fast food at the Castle. The company should maintain there bus better. Water from the air conditioning unit dripped water all over me several times during the trip. That should not happen to any customer. JJ as our driver did the best job he could have done under the circumstances.

Good overall but kissing the stone is a tourism gimmick!
ehtisham_s
, Jul 2022
We enjoyed the Rock of Cashel more than we were anticipating. Blarney Castle was good but, frankly, kissing the stone takes time and was not worth it. We should have spent some more time walking around the gardens. Stopover in Cork was, however, enjoyable.

Blarney trip was a full day. Worth every minute. Driver was full of information and had a great singing voice. Rock of Cashel, Blarney Castle and Cork for lunch was great.

What an amazing tour! I think we lucked out with our guide Brian. He was amazing! The history he gave us was incredible! My only complaint with this tour is that there was not enough time in Cork. But other then that amazing!

The places are beautiful, but everything is in a rush. Probably 2 days tour would be better. There were no time to see Cork and to explore in details the Blarney Castle. No time for the tower and not enough time for the beautiful park.

Rock of Cashel is beautiful. Blarney castle was stunning and a great experience going to kiss the stone! More time to explore Blarney castle would be great. Cork is a city I’d like to explore further as time was limited.

Check pickup location

CHECK YOUR TICKET TO SEE WHERE THE PICKUP LOCATION IS! Luckily, there was about 10 of us that did the same thing so they picked us up but that could have ruined our day. the viator website shows a different location then the ticket so just make sure to look at your ticket before you drive/walk over in the morning. Everything else was great!

Excellent Tour!
Eric_R
, Jul 2022
The tour itself was very good! Paul did a fantastic job and was very funny! Very cool sites with lots of historical significance. The only issue was the confusion surrounding the pick up location address. We went to 34 O’Connell St and was told our tour bus was at a different location a few blocks away. We hurriedly rushed to the alternate location to get on the bus. The driver then drove back over to the original location at 34 O’Connell St to pick up about 14 people that were at that location. That confusion needs to be cleared up for future tours as people(including us) were very frustrated.
