    Paddywagon tour - Good. Viator - Disappointing
    Scott_C
    , Aug 2022
    The Bus tour was fine if a bit disorganized. The driver (Dan) for Paddywagon tours did a great job. The issue I had was with Viator. I had booked and received confirmation for a 6 day Ireland rail tour. I then made my flight arrangements based on that tour. The following day, Viator sent me a message saying my tickets for the rail tour were being cancelled and my money was being refunded. I did not request to have my tickets cancelled and I am assuming they overbooked and I was their collateral damage. This unprompted tour cancellation caused me to have to juggle flights and hotels I had already booked causing unnecessary headaches and expenses. I contacted Viator and they said they would help me find an alternative rail tour. However, they booked me for a bus tour instead. While the bus tour with Paddywagon was fine, it was not what I had requested of Viator. I won't book through Viator again.

    Perfect Ireland Experience
    Katy_R
    , Jul 2022
    Hands down the best trip I've been on. This was my first time traveling solo internationally, and I wanted to do a group tour as to ease myself into this unfamiliar setting. Dan was our guide, and he went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable by answering all of my questions and providing exact instructions for every part of the 6-day tour. The accommodations were excellent, the bus was comfortable, and this experience gave me the confidence to plan more solo trips around the world. I am still astounded by how much we were able to fit in a mere six days, and I learned so much about Ireland on this trip. 10/10 would (and have already) recommend to friends, and it was an experience I'll never forget.

    Ireland in a nutshell tour - best way to explore the country
    Selestina
    , Sep 2021
    It was a wonderful 6 day tour! I would do it again if I can, with the same itinerary, guide/driver and group of people. Very nicely organized, some days were busy visiting sights, hikes or a walking tours, but other days were less busy and we had time to explore the towns alone, get some souvenir, have some quiet time at the beach or have a meditation at a cathedral. It's the best way to get a taste of the whole country in 6 days. Our guide/driver, Alex, is simply an excellent one! An eloquent story/history teller. He knows how to capture our attention. He tells stories in ways that was easy to understand. I chose Hostel accommodation. The hostels were quite OK, except the Sleepzone hostel in Galway. A 9 m2 room for 5 mix-gender people is a bit crowded. Killarney hostel was nice/clean except no breakfast. The best was the stay in Annascaul. We had the whole house to ourselves! Highlights: Cliffs of Moher, Giant's Causeway, Wild Atlantic Way, Dingle Peninsula, Slea Head Drive and sheep encounter. In terms of towns, I liked Killarney the best. I highly recommend this tour to anybody: young and old, couples or solo travelers.

    It is rare for a tour to be perfect, I know, but if you are lucky enough to have Brian as your Paddywagon guide and driver, you will have the time of your life! Everything is done for you - accommodations, picturesque stops and very enjoyable activities. Every day of the tour far exceeded my expectations and created some of the happiest memories of my life. Thank you, Brian, for making this beautiful, vibrant country three-dimensional with your detailed commentary! Your good humour and positive attitude were appreciated by everyone on the tour. If you are considering a Paddywagon tour, you will not be disappointed! I am thinking of doing another one! Thanks again!

    Brian make sure all of us have a good vacation. He told us Ireland history and news. He bring us to many places that is incredible. But if you not a person that can stand along for noisy and vomit sound in the night from your group, make sure you choose economy instead of backpack. Backpack rooms like squize all people inside one room and the room really small. If you have enough budget then get economy, at least you can have good sleep in night. The tour bring me to places stated, due to time constraint, all places will only give less time to visit. Understand guide need to make sure he bring us to all place but really rush. I have to run at cliff of moher from south to east within 1 hour.

    We had a wonderful time on the tour. Family of 4. Loved the driver Rory. We took the B&B option. The PaddyWagon owned location was really nice. Probably a 3 star property. The other B&Bs were clean but the beds were really old and definitely needed to be replaced. Loved the other bus mates. Would travel on another Paddy Wagon adventure.

    Best Bus Tour Ever

    Family of six (three seniors and three teenagers). Had the best time. Bus driver knew everything and let us know the inside info. Saw the entire ring of the island and saw everything we really wanted to see. Food great, accommodations great, scenery great. Managed to go 5 out of 6 days without rain. Would definitely go on this trip again.

    , Sep 2018
    exaggerated... actually no choice much in Ireland operator but paddy wagon which is not worthy for the price. 1. crowded coach, uncomfortable seat. 2. the hi-light tourists would like to see like Dark edge. driver just drove pass and say not safe acutally he's too lazy to find the parking. there were just 4-5 cars there,no big bus or crowded at all when we arrived but he just passed not even a glance. most tourists were disappointed for this. unacceptable! SO YOU SHOULD NOT USE DARK EDGE AS AVATAR FOR THIS 6-DAY TOUR, as it's the point i decided to pick this tour. moreover the driver skip car-the ridge-rack something, we cant even see from long distance, just disappear from program...

    The tour was great overall!! However, beware viator has misleading information. We were not able to walk the rope bridge in the north from game of thrones. If you check the official paddy wagons website, you will get a much better itinerary. I went on the backpackers tour, the hostels were nothing to brag about. I recommend the Bed and Breakfast tour. Rori was our tour guide and he was amazing!! I would recommend this tour to anyone!

    The tour covered all the attractions I wanted to see. I wish we could spend more time at certain locations. Be sure to check the actual vendor's website instead of Viator. I was sad to find out that the listing on Viator was not 100 accurate. Our guide said the company had asked Viator to update their listing, but it was never done. I was not the only disappointed one. Our guide also made adjustments depending on weather.

    Truly stress-free. Everyday is PACKED with exciting things to do as well as must see item that were on my list. I was skeptical at first since I was traveling alone but there was a lot of group interactions and dinners. Our tour guide, Ruairi was a perfect man for the job,hysterical and a heart of gold.

    This trip was one of the most amazing I have ever been on. Paddywagon did a great job of giving you a display of the wonders Ireland has to offer. I had Rory as a tour guide he does this tour often and he gave incredible recommendation at each stop and answered any question you had. I booked this trip for myself not wanting to be stressed with planning and it was exactly what I wanted. It's not necessarily designed to be catered towards younger people, though I will say it works out best for a younger 18-28 year-old crowd.

    If I could give this tour more stars, I would! Freddie aka Shakira aka Jingle was a blast - he kept us on track and he kept us awake and interested. We had the best time and got to see so much of the country. I'll be honest and say that at first when I bought the tour I wasn't entirely sure I made the right decision for my husband and I. Huge green bus with a leprechaun on it? Same group of people every day? How will it work to be in a new place every night? None of these were a problem! If you're organized in your packing, being in a new place isn't difficult at all! Word to the wise - the accommodations the first night in Belfast were not the most enjoyable, but immediately got progressively better the rest of the trip we chose the BNB option.

    We took this tour in October 2017. The weather wasn't ideal, but wasn't terrible. I think this was a great time to tour Ireland as the tourist season was over and although there were still visitors I can imagine there would be hundreds more during the season. We had Freddy as our driver for Paddy Wagon tours. He was great! Very funny, very informative, very attentive to the needs of the group. He made the tour itself so much better. He helped us all help and look after each other. We had a great group. There were six of us in my party with one in a wheelchair due to an accident before our trip. He was very helpful with getting her in and out of places. The tour of Ireland itself was wonderful. Paddy Wagon took us all over the island and we saw many things we would not have thought to see on our own. The bus was comfortable. We were fortunate to have a new smaller bus that we could plug in to keep our devices charged and had wifi to stay connected to home and family. The B and B's were sufficient. All personnel at each place were very helpful and friendly. My only complaint would be Paddy Wagon should take the Bontanic Apts. in Belfast off their list of places to stay. The people there were super. We couldn't have asked for nicer, helpful staff. But the place itself is very old, dated, dirty, too many stairs. We thought we were staying at the Titanic Apts. in Belfast. Not sure what they are like as we did not get to stay there. The rest of the B and B's were clean and comfortable. Shout out to Seemus in Deery! He was super with our group! This tour is well worth taking. We loved it, we were very happy with our group. And we loved having Freddy as our driver!!

    I did NOT want to see Ireland in a giant green bus called the Patty Wagon. I wanted to go in a smaller, unobtrusive car. This trip was falsely advertised. I forfeited my ticket in Belfast and left. Worst experience.
