Disappointed
3 hours in total in Cong and Galway vs 9 hours on the bus.

Can’t recommend this to anyone, not worth it. Driver/tour guide is very informed however the rest of the tour is absolutely not worth going. Too much time travelling.

Great experience with the best driver

We had a really good time travelling and experience this tour despite the weather.
The guide was extremely good and knowledgeable about Dublin and its history. Big thanks to Jacky (sorry if spelt wrong) and his great sense of humor which was a huge plus to this trip !
We will definitely travel again with this company !

The tour was very pretty good. The guide was funny and we had various opportunities to take good photos. The group was small so we went with a small black bus that was quite comfortable.

Fantastic Guides!
Had a chance to take two tours with Paddy Wagon this week. Enjoyed both thoroughly!

Our guide for Galway and Cliffs of Moher guide, Jackie, was great. So friendly and attentive, we had a thoroughly entertaining time the whole day.

My guide for Wicklow and Kilkenny, Richard, was also fantastic. Years of experience and knowledge made for an extremely informative and eventful trip.

I can’t say enough about this tour company. Reasonable prices and good times aplenty.

Connemara and Galway tour
Jan 2020 • Solo
I booked a tour, was outside of the Savoy as told , waited 45 minutes before another couple who were waiting also called and spoke to Paul, we were told he had been there and he had not. If he had been there I would be on my way to Galway and Conemara. Then we are told we can't get a refund unless we send an email. Extremely disappointing experience and service.

The tour was phenomenal, particularly due to our excellent tour guide Patrick. He was extremely knowledgeable and a delight to listen to. The countryside was gorgeous, and Cong was incredibly charming. Great deal for price!

This is the One to Take
Oct 2019
If you're looking into seeing sights around Ireland, you've probably noticed a lot of tour companies offer packages. I did the Wicklow Tour on my first trip 10 years ago. When I went back with my mom this October (2019), we did the Connemara and Galway trip. This is a great way to see Ireland.

Price is great.
The buses are actually comfortable and provide somewhere for your stuff should you not want to carry too much.
The pick up places are easy to find for anyone and close to everything.
The schedule is well done with plenty of time to look, eat, shop, etc. but no time to get bored.
The guide was so Irish, frankly, and knew the best places to eat in the area! He was also very considerate of the fact I have difficulties breathing and walking much. He also makes sure you get good photo ops and was funny.

This tour is an amazing look at the other side of Ireland, the wilderness, some of it's oldest places. The views were magical.

Please note this is a guided tour. If you don't want that rent a car or something. There were a few people who wanted to talk over the driver and some who expected him to drive around the city and pick them up like an Uber when it was time to meet back at the bus and get back to Dublin on time...Also, there will be Irish music during the ride and information on Ireland...so expect that. I was thrilled with it!

This tour is in English. If you do not understand English, bring a translation tool so you do not get lost as to the schedule/directions etc.

Very nice tour. The guide the was great, a few cheesy jokes, but it was perfect.
Even though the weather wasn't the best it was still impressive to see, what you were able to see😄👍

Tour is not what is stated!
Sep 2019
I would not recommend Paddywagon Tours. Our driver Fin was late picking us up at the Molly Malone statue. We were the last ones on the bus which kept my husband and I from sitting together. We had one stop at a gas station and a very fast stop in Cong. On the way through Connemara Fin never told us what we were looking at or give us any information about the area. There was not a stop for pictures and he drove so fast there was no way you could take a picture even through the window. In Cong he told me we would be stopping for lunch but the next stop was Galway at 2:15 and he said we had to be back at the bus at 4:00. Very disappointed that we had to rush to eat and barely got to see anything in Galway. The tour states that we would return to Dublin at 20.00 but we were back in Dublin at 18.00. We should have had at least another hour in Galway or a stop along the Connemara to take pictures. Never saw the Atlantic coastline or Aran Islands. Very disappointing tour.

Galway City day tour
Sep 2019 • Couples
The tour was good. The only reason I didn’t give it a five was because there really wasn’t enough time to do anything in Galway. we were given about an hour and 45 minutes and after taking away time walking from the bus and back to the bus, that didn’t leave very much time to really do anything. The rest of the tour was great! Connemara was beautiful.
