At first i was a bit skeptical on booking this. Usually i travel solo without turisty bus organizations. I have to say I was very pleasently surprised! Besides the sightseeing that talks for itself, i liked the fact that the bus driver Richard, was very knowledgeable, professional and made us laugh lots! I also liked the fact that the company is super strict on time. Sometimes if you travel with such a big group you end up waiting for the late people and miss out on something. Not with Richard. He made it very clear that in case someone was late, he wouldn't wait. So everyone was very respectful and no time had been wasted.
It was a sunny beautiful day yesterday, so Richard asked us about changing the iternatary and not only doing the cliffs by bus from up, but also by boat! We paid (whoever wanted) and took the boat to see the cliffs from a different point of view and it was truly amazing!
Also, You won't have too much time to go out for lunch etc. I recommend to get the best out of the day, bring Sandwiches so you have more time for sightseeing!
Last but not least, the bus is super clean!

First, this company was very patient with my group, who was last minute and had trouble getting tickets. Our driver, Richard, was supportive and, after warning us not to be late later, commenced to give one of the best tours of my life.

Richard was beyond knowledgeable. He gave us history of Ireland via trivia, jokes, and music. He was playful, teasing the passengers, and overall very engaging. He organized lunch where we ordered ahead of time and was met at a small pub with some of the best seafood chowder I’ve ever had.

More than anything, he kept an eye out for us, warning us about weather, taking care of a couple sick passengers and answering as many questions as we could throw at him.

He provided beyond a full day that didn’t feel long. I absolutely recommend this tour for anyone looking for a good day trip across Ireland.

My daughter Hollie and I did 3 tours with Paddywagon Tours and every one of them were amazing! The cost was affordable, the buses were clean, spacious and comfortable and always at a good temperature, The destinations ( Cliffs of Moher, Giants Causeway and Blarney Castle) were beautiful beyond description. Our Guide Gerry was attentive to our needs, funny, genuine, very knowledgeable about Irish history and kind. He kept us well entertained while traveling with Irish stories, history and music. He kept everything well paced and the tours allowed plenty of time for exploring, eating, picture taking and adventure. While Paddywagon didn't have anyone answering the phone when we tried to contact them to verify pick up times and places, they were very quick to respond to emails.
Hollie and I had the time of our lives in Ireland and Paddywagon Tours was a huge part of that! I am SO grateful that you are back after the Covid shutdown and wish all of you (especially Gerry) continued success on your comeback! Thank you for everything!! We will be talking about our trip for years to come!

The Cliffs of Moher made this trip worthwhile. It was absolutely worth the trip out. I chose this one in particular because it was a small group tour. Overall there are too many non-essential elements built into this tour and it takes time away from the main component. The Burren and the top of the Cliffs were spectacular but the cliffs felt rushed. The driving felt too fast at times and unsafe. There were two stops that were just about making money for partners -the boat trip &Bunratty Castle

Jacky was informative when he was on the microphone. He had good stories for the group.

Overall this is a smaller group (25) tour that fees like a large group tour.

My boyfriend and I had booked a tour to the Cliffs of Moher about a month ago. Unfortunately, storm Brendan struck which closed the Cliffs of Moher the day we were planning to go. A “red status” warning was issued, which closed the Cliffs of Moher tour office and when looking at their website, they pleaded that no one come to the cliffs as it is severely dangerous in these conditions.

Paddywagon tour never even informed us that the cliffs would be closed; we had to find out by looking at Facebook. Of course, we did not want to attend a tour that would last an entire day (12 hours plus) that wouldn’t even go to our final destination.

We walked all the way to Paddywagon’s tour office to request a refund for this trip (in the middle of storm Brendan I might add), because it was our last day in Europe and we would not be able to reschedule. They refused and said they best they could do was give us a company credit that would only be valid for the next year. However, they would not take care of that on the spot and instead told us to email the company. We did so, and never got a response.

Now I understand not offering refunds for people that miss their buses, or other situations like that. However, when a storm closes the Cliffs for safety reasons, I think it is INSANE that a giant company like this would not offer refunds. This situation was entirely out of our control, and now I’m out over $100. Apparently these type of storms only close the cliffs a couple times a year too, so it’s not like they’d have to issue these refunds often.

I will never use this company even if I come back to Dublin. I am so disappointed that they could not do anything for me in this situation, not even a simple email response. I would not recommend booking tickets in advance because you have no way of getting refunded if something goes wrong. Stay away!!

I wouldn't recommend this tour operator unless you are an American tourist visiting Ireland. Our tour guide Dan was more interested in interacting with the American customers as if my family and I did not exist! I went on a tour of the Cliffs of Moher. I took my parents along. We also visited Doolin village. It could have been such a nice tour if our tour guide Dan wasn't so time conscious. We visited the world famous Gus O' Connor for lunch, only to have Dan force the entire tour group out of the pub in 40 minutes! So much for our lunches! We also effectively bypassed what could have been such beautiful tourist attractions like thatched cottages, Irish craft shops in favour of some silly ruins from the medieval era! Also, his assistant Kieran was incredibly rude to my dad who was trying to find out about the accessibility options at the Cliffs of Moher for people with limited mobility! Kieran seemed to be more interested in flirting with a group of American female college students by showing off his knowledge of Ireland!

I brought a group of 10 university students on this tour during our 2 week visit to Ireland and Scotland. We actually joined this tour from Limerick, not Dublin, which we learned was not ideal, as the bus was late, and harder to board when it's already mostly full, especially when you have a large group. Our driver was Sas, and he was informative and entertaining, engaging with our students and ensuring everyone was having a great time, even during the long bus ride times. The Cliffs of Moher are absolutely incredible, but we lost out on a lot of time there because the bus was late leaving Dublin. We definitely wanted more time to walk around the cliffs that we didn't have. Also, while the scenery was incredible along the Atlantic Way, motion-sick passengers beware!!!!! I had three students feeling awful the whole ride, just waiting for the day to be over because of all the tight, twisting, bumpy roads of the country side.

I have never had a worse experience in my life and I am so upset. We booked this tour 2 weeks in advance and stayed an extra day in Dublin, and we didn’t get to go. We got to the bus 15 minutes early to ensure we were at the right spot, and we waited 30 minutes, and we’re told we couldn’t get on the bus. They overbooked the tour, and half my friends were on the bus while the other half of us got left behind. They didn’t even check tickets, so people who were supposed to be on another tour we’re on our bus, taking our spots. The man who was working the bus details was so rude and did not help at all. He even told us the opposite direction of the office of where to try and get a refund. When we tried to find the office, no one was there and everyone said we had to go somewhere else, which we had to wait 2 hours for it to open to get our refund. I’ve never had a worse experience with such an unprofessional company, I would never recommend this company or tour to anyone. Absolutely do not go on this tour, or do anything with this company, we are all extremely upset and now have nothing to do until we leave tomorrow. We planned our whole trip around this tour, and they wouldn’t even let us get on the bus. Extremely upset and hate this company. They said it wasn’t their fault and there was a “glitch” in the system. Absolutely so unprofessional and never want to be in Ireland again because of this company.

Outstanding trip! Bus was clean and comfortable. The best part of the trip was our driver, Richard O’Brien! He was knowledge, kind to all, and hysterical!!!! Even though he made me sing my country’s national anthem to the whole bus for being late at a stop I couldn’t have had a better time. Laughed non stop as he played tunes from his playlist to match the historical events he narrated as we drive through Ireland. We learned so much all while witnessing the incredible beauty of Ireland. Thanks Pattywagon and Richard O’Brien!

If you're taking this tour from Dublin, be aware. The tour was pretty mediocre. I'd advice anyone willing to visit the cliffs to just rent a car (if you are with a group of f&f) It will be much more confortable as its a long commute (12hour round trip) with very limited 15 minute stops where you barely have time to get a couple of pictures of the castles and other nice spots along the way.

The bus was okay, but the guide was pretty boring and not compelling at all on his speech regarding what we were sighseeing along the way.

Also, not exactly as advertised, we didn't stop at the exact places stated in the website and didn't have the chance to pick a different lunch maybe, they just took us to a restaurant they have a partnership with, and offered standard dishes they had for 15 euro each. We might wanted to try something else you know... The food was OK tho.

If you planning to visit the cliffs, just do yourself a favor and avoid tours from Dublin. Catch a plane to Shannon and get a rental from there or Dublin and go there by yourself, enjoy the views (which are great) at your own pace and discover the little villages over there, which are lovely.
