Good value

Great trip with plenty of time at Blarney and Cashel. Cork City was ok, not a lot of time there to explore. Overall well worth it.

Disappointed with our tour company Paddywagon Tours.

The Blarney Castle and Stone were the best parts. We were very disappointed with Paddywagon tours. We couldn’t reach them on the phone prior to confirm, then they showed up 15 min late.

Great Sites, Less Than Great Tour Company
Ryan_H
, Oct 2021
The actual locations were great though our time was cut short due to the original driver being over 15 minutes late. That driver was with with us for about an hour and was constantly heavy breathing into the mic, which was unsettling. He was at least a good driver though. After that, a new driver got on the same bus and was driving like Mickey Mouse the whole time (you know, the wheel is constantly moving left and right even though you’re going straight). An extra half hour at both Blarney and Cork would have been perfect. The speakers in the bus kept cutting out too, so that was annoying. This tour is worth it to get to these amazing places, but don’t expect the most professional tour company.

A bit of a climb to the Blarney Stone for those not very fit but worth the experience. Lovely gardens to see unfortunately was raining on our visit so ended up in gift shops and cafe for baileys hot chocolate, delicious but overall well worth the trip

Watch out for the sneaky pint
Tiffany_J
, Mar 2020
Richard was hilarious and a fun driver/guide to have. Upon boarding, we were given the "sneaky pint" option. This is where you cut your tour time by an hour so the whole bus can go to a pub for a pint. We were traveling at a time where the winds could knock you down thanks to Storm Jorge. Everyone decides on a sneaky pint. Richard gave our 6 year old the privalage to seranade the bus. He really made the trip memorable for her! We continued our way to the Rock of Cashel where Richard gave us an amazing photo opportunity right on the roadside. We had about 30 minutes to enjoy the Rock and the views. We continued to Cork where we were guided directly into the English Market straight to O'Flynns Gourmet Sausage to get a Cork Boi (highly suggested!). We then continued our way up to Blarney to see the Blarney Castle and watch others get the gift of Gab. Blarney Woollen Mills has a lot of items, but Richard suggested the clearance room upstairs and all the way to the Southside of the building. Just be careful, some of these items are damaged. If you are a fiber artist, there is yarn for sale just under the stairs near the kids section (AMAZING prices too!) Then we all got on the bus to head towards the sneaky pint at Kavanaugh's in Naas Ireland. This is where the sneaky pint got sneakier, we could only spend 25 minutes because at 30, the GPS would log the location on the bus. Still, we were able to enjoy a pint and get food to eat before heading back to Dublin. Richard always had fun music playing and some old music videos going. He was very attentive to the personalities on the bus and even had fun poking at a single lady at the front. The tour overall was great, but I think a you with a guide and a driver is better. This ensures your safety and the driver is also able to have his much earned break times between stops.

Loved this tour. Only thing I would change is more time would’ve been nice at Cork. It was a little bit challenging time wise to locate the Cork ‘English Market ‘ from the drop off point. Otherwise a superb tour and informative guide. Loved our 2 hours exploring in and around Blarney Castle. Transport vehicle for tour was very comfortable.
