Tour Guide Jobs

Paddywagon Tours is Ireland’s leading tour company. Each tour is a blend of sightseeing, scenery, leisure time and loads of laughs. Although most of our tours are led by driver- guides, during the peak summer months we also employ (non- driver) tour guides who look after the group while a separate driver drives the coach and looks after logistics.

Our tour guides enjoy industry leading rates of pay and very enjoyable work, meeting people from all over the world and experiencing the best of the Irish summer experience.

These roles would particularly suit current students or anybody who has an interest in working seasonally within the tourism industry during the peak summer months.
