The ride was great, with excellent views as the weather mostly cooperated. The driver was entertaining, enthusiastic, and informative. We were blessed to ride in a smaller tour bus that maneuvered the narrow roads well and made stop-offs easier.

Killarney Paddywagon Tours has big tour buses. We drove by a lot of view spots, because the driver couldn't find a parking spot. People who came from Cork got the scenic side of the bus and the driver did not want us to change seats.

The Irish music was unbearable, really loud and very annoying to listen to for a full day, also hardly any time at each stop 10min here 10min there spent most of the time on the bus, also no real info about each area we went to. Would not recommend.

The Paddywagon tour with Mike was great. We didn't have the best weather but he keep things entertaining and interesting as we circled the ring. I am glad that he was driving those narrow winding roads instead of me. It was a great day trip and covered a lot of territory!

This trip was made by the driver whose name escapes me but it was on the day Tipperary won the cup and he was a big fan. The scenery was stunning especially the last stop of The waterfalls in Killarney national park.Would highly recommend

Nice stops along the way but foggy day blocked most of our views. Charming little thatched cottage village well worth the 5 Euro charge. Lunch stop was very good and reasonably priced. Tour guide was very knowledgeable and made the experience more rewarding than just driving around on your own.
