Dublin & Glendalough

We were expecting a green Paddy wagon bus and had been waiting at the cruise terminal for some time as all the other buses had arrived, some had loaded and left. Finally a black van showed up and the driver said we were going with him. Seven Canadians loaded in, took off through Dublin, driver got a call, he was missing a passenger, returned to port, passenger had changed mind, driver not very communicative as a guide, big rush on highway, started raining, visibility poor, we did get to spend time at the monastery as rain had let up, back on road always rushing, it was not enjoyable, weather didn't help. He did drop us at a very expensive Pub for a late lunch. We wouldn't recommend him as a guide.

Our Paddy Wagon tour bus was totally visible from our ship. Booked independent of our ship at 1/2 price. John, our native Dubliner driver/guide was OUTSTANDING. Entertained us with Dublin facts, stories, poems, and songs. The day was terrific and will use off ship tours again!! John was very willing to accommodate our groups boarding requests too, no angst about meeting the ship.

It was a nice tour. NO issues with the pick up from the cruise port. Good bus driver/tour guide. I didn't give 5 stars because the tour does not include enough time for lunch at Glendalough. We had about 10 mins to get something quickly off the food truck after finishing the trail to the upper lake (and we walked pretty fast).

Val our tour guide was great. He was extremely helpful, fun and created such energy in the bus. Each activity was well spaced with adequate time for each. Glendalough was simply fabulous. Most beautiful place.

This company meet us right at the gangway after coming from Crown Princess. Tiernan was very entertaining and very knowledgeable. He’s organize and helps with tips to make the most of your time in the places you are going to visit. It was such a lovely walk at Glendalough so wear your walking shoes for comfort. There’s so much to see in Dublin. Great day and weather. I would definitely recommend this tour.

Enjoyed the trip to Glendalough and had time to walk around the lakes but too short a time in Dublin to do much.
