Day tour to Cliffs of Moher and others
Three friends and I did the day tour and it was incredible. The Cliffs of Moher and the general "greeness" throughout the trip were sights that I will never forget. However, what made the trip truly spectacular was the humor and leadership of our guide, John Kelly. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable but it was akin to attending a 9 hour stand up special by a top rate comedian. Inbetween information about the sights we saw and the history of Ireland , he provided comedic relief that was much appreciated. On multiple occasions I found myself laughing so hard it was difficult to breathe. His jokes were clean and harmless in nature but nevertheless hilarious. I felt like I got to spend an entire day with an Irish Jerry Seinfeld on cocaine. He also taught the group traditional Irish songs and encouraged everyone to join in. I have been on countless tours in my life and have never had such an experience. The energy, hospitality and humor he showed throughout are unrivaled. If you ever get the chance to take one of these tours and have a pulse request John Kelly aka JFK bka the Irish legend and you will not be disappointed.

Professional and fun
I did the Cliffs of Moher tour, together with my husband and my mother in law. All was perfectly timed and the bus driver, Valentine, was amazing. He gave us a lot of info, he was professional but at the same time fun and entertaining. We were very happy and we definitely recommend the company.

Cliff of Moher with Dermot - AMAZING!
We had an absolutely amazing experience with Paddywagon. Our driver Dermot was exceptional, in every way. The cliffs were just amazing, breathtakingly so. The trip was long but loaded with history and enchanting tidbits about that beautiful country and its history. We were honestly trilled and it was worth far more than the fee itself.
