Very good tour...just a long day by the time you pick up at other locations.
Tour guide was very good with a good sense of humor. Tour sites were great and weather cooperated this day.

Although the weather didn't cooperate and we were unable to see the Blasket Islands, the tour was still well worth doing. There were so many beautiful sites and the stops we made offered other views. The Paddywagon tour guide/driver - Paudie - was phenomenal. He was obviously very knowledgeable about Ireland's history, providing so much information, and he was also passionate about sharing it. The town of Dingle was charming and had the best seafood chowder there that we found the entire Ireland trip. I highly recommend the tour!

The drive itself was beautiful and the driver was quite skilled. He was, however, not interesting, sarcastic to everyone on the bus, and rushed us through each stop. We didn't even have enough time at the beach to walk to the water and back before he was beeping the horn and we were half jogging to and from the water. It was the stop we most wanted to see. It seemed strange that when we stopped at some roadside house where another sarcastic man was that we spent more time there paying 3 euro each to use the restroom and hold his feces covered lamb. The driver and the man seemed acquainted to me. This was the only stop where we had enough time to pee and it cost us 3 euro each. The driver also suggested where we should eat in Dingle, but when we walked in that pub, they told us one hour was not enough time to be served and eat. We quickly ate at another crowded pub but did not get to see any of Dingle. We needed to get back on the bus. We made strange stops to pick up random people along the way, which seemed strange since we needed to taxi to our departure point. At one point, we needed to get off of our bus and get on a smaller bus. Again this was time we could have spent eating, peeing, or actually on the beach. We made a stop that was unscheduled to see lakes - we weren't told which. He needed to relieve himself and sweep the sand out of our smaller bus. We also stopped at a mall for 5 minutes, so he could get fuel...He picked up more people at this mall though, who took our seats while we were inside the mall. I do not think he got fuel at all. From this point on, he never spoke or stopped. It was a bus ride only. He made a comment about every single person who got off of the bus. He is definitely not a tour person - great driver but terrible guide. Beautiful Views but way too rushed!!!!!!

This tour was from Paddywagon Tours, and we had a wonderful time. Our driver--Paul--was outstanding. It was obvious how moved he was himself by the beautiful countryside and the centuries of farmland use. He cared so much that each passenger enjoy the scenery of his country. We went in May--lambing season!--and there were opportunities to pet baby lambs as we stopped by individual farms. A lovely, charming peninsula and a lovely, unforgettable day.

This was a very good tour. The company allowed me to leave the tour at Dingle town prior to the coach returning to its starting points, thus providing me transportation to the peninsula plus an informative tour for about the price of a one-way bus fare from Limerick to Dingle.
