The tour was very well organised, the train and coach trips very comfortable and the Drymond B&B, which was cosy and very clean, gave us a wonderful taste of Irish hospitality. We had great views of the stunning scenery and landscape of the South-west of Ireland and all admissions to points of interest such as Blarney Castle, Cliffs of Moher, etc were efficiently taken care of with adequate provisions for rest within the scheduled times. The piece de resistance of the whole tour was our guide, Jonathan Beaumont. He gave us the best possible insight of Irish hospitality and welcome, he was professional and attentive to everyone, and imparted such in-depth and accurate historical facts of Ireland especially about the Great Famine. He also gave us interesting insights into the folklore and superstitions of Ireland such as the Fairy Tree :) . Our enjoyment of the whole tour was enhanced by this very special tour guide - thank you Jonathan! Doreen and Paule from Seychelles.

With us the tour went a little differently. In the morning a guide put us in the wrong bus. By the time we noticed it, it was unfortunately too late. We think it's terrific and especially to emphasize how the tour provider arranged everything in our favor. We could still see everything and spend our night in Cork. There are definitely 5 stars from us for this achievement. The tour itself is really very well organized. The guides are in a good mood and know how to keep people entertained even during longer driving times. But everything is rewarded with great pictures. Those who want to see something from Ireland are well equipped with the tours from Paddywagon. The buses are very modern. A great trip!
Very well organized stay, top accommodation, superb places visited, only happiness Only downside, we would have liked an audio guide, despite some knowledge of English it was difficult for us to follow the comments only in English
Andy is the best guide ever! What a fabulous tour. I highly recommend this tour for those that have limited time in Ireland or those who just want to sit back, enjoy the views and receive some history and laughs!
Totally fabulous day out would thoroughly recommend booking this. All very well organised.
Everything was very good and the guide made it interesting and funny!
