Full description
Experience the dramatic landscapes of the southwest of Ireland on a 2-day budget tour to the Cliffs of Moher, Blarney Castle, and more. Kiss the famous Blarney Stone, enjoy panoramic views across the Atlantic Ocean, and stay in the historic city of Cork to enjoy the local life up-close.

Day 1: Dublin - Rock of Cashel - Blarney - Cork
Depart Dublin at 08:00 for a relaxing drive through scenic County Cork. The first stop will be the world famous Rock of Cashel. One of Ireland's most evocative sites, you can stroll in the footsteps of St. Patrick flanked by ruins, Celtic crosses and round towers and feel the soul of Ireland. The Rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the Kings of Munster until they donated the complex to the Catholic Church almost 1,000 years ago for use as a cathedral. The site is one of the best examples of medieval architecture in Europe. The next stop is Ireland's second city, Cork. Here there is time to visit the English Markets recently visited by Queen Elizabeth II, that offer a wide range of local produce from artisan meats and cheeses and all that is good about Irish fine fare. This is an ideal place to enjoy lunch. In the afternoon you will go to the quaint town of Blarney to kiss the legendary Blarney Stone (optional) at the medieval stronghold of Blarney Castle. Learn the story behind the tradition as you explore the castle’s dungeons, caves and hidden bedrooms. Return to Cork, where you will spend the night.

Day 2: Cork - Burren - Cliffs of Moher - Dublin
Start the day with a drive through the beautiful Golden Vale, home to some of the best farm land in Ireland. Stop in Limerick to see the River Shannon and get some fine photos of King John's Castle. Continue west to County Clare, enjoying views of the wild Atlantic Ocean as you drive along the West Coast. Marvel at beautiful beaches of golden sand, looking out for dolphins and whales. Admire the lunar landscape of The Burren, where Alpine, Arctic and Mediterranean flowers grow side-by-side. Hear inspiring tales of how the Irish overcame the horrors of the Great Potato Famine of 1845-49, when over 1 million Irish fled to all 4 corners of the earth to escape. Upon arrival at the Cliffs of Moher, gaze in awe at the sheer majesty of the cliffs and crashing waves. See why world surf champ, Kelly Slater, came here for the award-winning surf movie “Wave Riders.” En route back to Dublin, enjoy a short photo stop at the 15th-century tower house of Bunratty Castle.

With us the tour went a little differently. In the morning a guide put us in the wrong bus. By the time we noticed it, it was unfortunately too late. We think it's terrific and especially to emphasize how the tour provider arranged everything in our favor. We could still see everything and spend our night in Cork. There are definitely 5 stars from us for this achievement. The tour itself is really very well organized. The guides are in a good mood and know how to keep people entertained even during longer driving times. But everything is rewarded with great pictures. Those who want to see something from Ireland are well equipped with the tours from Paddywagon. The buses are very modern. A great trip!

Interesting transport trip

Good storytelling drivers, exciting places, and our accommodation (B&B, Acorn) in Cork were cozy with a nice breakfast. If you want to see more of nature west of eg The Burren, this is not the trip you have to choose as the trip is characterized by being more transport than sightseeing

The Cliffs were BEAUTIFUL!

The sites were great, a definite must see if you visiting Ireland. The two day trip was a combination of 2 one day trips. The coordination could be a bit better. Breakfast was to be included, but we would have missed it due to the pick up time for the second day, if I had not asked specifically for the timing. Someone did come in and make us breakfast at the B&B. The bus driver was also the guide, I think it is better for there to be a separate guide so the driver is more focused on driving and the second person is there to focus on the experience. Overall tho' a great trip and would recommend.
