Great trip, picked up from the pier and headed off into the countryside. Of course have to thank Paddywagon and our tour guide for providing the wonderful sunshine.... The time allowed in Glendalough was perfect and allowed for plenty of time to get out and explore the ruins and walk out towards the lake. Guide was very informative on the way to and from and kept us entertained. This was day two of our cruise stop in Dublin, so when we were dropped off in the shopping district we explored a little bit more and used the ship's shuttle back to the pier, but given the time we were dropped off I am confident they would have gotten us back to the ship.
A great day tour that gets you out of the city, but also gives you some time to explore when you return.

We were in a bus that held about 20 people, but there were only 16 of us, so it was plenty comfy. Brand new bus. This excursion is run by a company called Paddywagon Tours. Our driver was great. He took us to the ruins at Glendalough, and then proceeded further on to view the countryside. It was very fun and the driver, John, was great. OUr tour then went back to Dublin where we got off and ate and spent some time. It was not a strict tour, the driver did not stay with us at each stop, but it was very comfortable and relaxing. I feel like we saw a lot that many tours do not see. I would highly recommend this tour.

Great day, easy to find at the port. They are there waiting for you with signs. Value was exceptional. Scenery devine on the way to Glendalough. Always be prepared for the Irish weather. It was awesome. Dublin was walkable, and we had enough time to explore before going back to the ship

The countryside are beautiful when the weather is fine. It rains quite frequently and we experienced different weather conditions in a day. It's good that the tour group is not big, about 16 people and the journey is smooth. Half a day in Dublin city is really not sufficient including a quick bite. Tour guide is good and informative.

Having been to Dublin before, we really booked this excursion for the Gendalough portion. Glendalough was beautiful. Our tour guide/driver was Lee. Lee was very informative and answered all of our questions. We were given adequate time to explore both Glendalough and Dublin on our own. We did a drive thru tour of Dublin and then Lee dropped us off to explore Dublin. He gave us plenty of suggestions for things to see and places to eat. Really enjoyed this tour.,
