This tour was a great value for what you got. The tour guide/driver was knowledgeable and funny and could really maneuver that bus around those thin winding roads. Side note to that...if you tend to get carsick you are best off sitting at the front of the bus, these roads are bumpy and winding! Glendalough was gorgeous and the muffins in the little hotel restaurant there were fabulous. Kilkenny was very enjoyable. We chose to use our time there touring Kilkenny Castle. We had enough time to go in a few shops and stop for lunch. I would have enjoyed more time in this medieval town. Overall I highly recommend this tour. I also recommend starting the tour in the morning at the first meeting spot as the bus tends to fill up and it may be difficult to sit by family or friends if you join at the second or third location.

Our guide Bailey was great! Funny and knowledgeable. Lovely drive up through Wicklow Mountains. Stopped at Glendalough. Walked to lower and upper lakes for photos and viewed Round Towers and monastic site. If you want to reach the upper lake, be warned it is about a 3.4km round trip walk so keep up a steady pace and take your pics of the monastic site on the way back. Alternatively, just walk to lower lake the first lake then back to monastic site. Won't be missing out on much.
Kilkenny was great. Enough time for a walk around, quick lunch and tour of Kilkenny castle and grounds.

What a great tour! Our guide/driver, Valentine, was full of knowledge and very entertaining - including his singing! First stop was Glendalough and the monastic settlement founded by St. Kevin. It's in a beautiful setting in the Wicklow National Forest and we had time for the settlement, a short hike to a lovely lake, and delicious scones in the hotel restaurant. From there we went through the Wicklow Gap fogged in, unfortunately, and then down to the city of Kilkenny. We had plenty of time for a tour of the castle and at least one more site visit. We choose the Smithwick's Brewery. Also recommended were the Cathedral and another smaller church. Val was very good at giving us ideas when we arrived at a spot - where to eat, what to see, and even what order to see things to make the best use of your time. A lovely trip.

Excellent trip with plenty of time roaming around the places we visited. Our guide, Leigh, was simply fantastic and didn't allow us having one dull moment during the trip. I highly recommend it.

Sem dúvida um dos melhores tours. A região de Wicklow é de uma beleza natural incrível e a oportunidade de visitar o Castelo de Kilkenny é uma coisa que não se pode perder.
Ônibus com wifi e guia muito simpático.

Amazing driver! I will always do Paddywagon tours from now on . Took others but this one did not rush you. No long bathroom lines, with 5 minutes to eat. Please do take a few days with no tours to just enjoy Dublin . Fantastic place.

Most beautiful scenery in all of Ireland! The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because our tour was with Paddywagons. Mostly kids staying in Hostiles and our bus driver flirted with the girls. His language also left something to be desired considering there was 2 young children on the tour. I believe his name was Gavin...would not book with this company again

Alex was a very entertaining, knowledgeable tour guide with great Irish pride. Although it rained in Glendalough I still found the cemetary fascinating and the views spectacular on the hike. Kilkenny was a delightful town, could have spent a half day there. We were given a good map with the highlights of what we could choose to visit. I learned a lot of the history of ireland.

A very good daytrip--Glendalough is one of my favorite places in the world and I could spend a week exploring Kilkenny. Our guide Frank managed to be both informative and entertaining, without getting tiresome.
