Here at Paddywagon Tours, we have years of experience under our belt, meaning that we’re well-equipped to look after you for the best value excursion from your cruise ship. We’ll be sure to pack in all of the top sights that Dublin city and the surrounding countryside have to offer, without ever compromising on value, quality or punctuality. Here’s five reasons to choose us:
At Paddywagon, we pride ourselves on strict punctuality. Our Shore Tours leave the Dublin Port Cruise Ship Terminal at 7.30am, or 30 minutes after the ships docking if at a later time, in a luxury green Paddywagon Coach. We guarantee that tours will always return to the ship an hour and a half prior to your cruise’s departure, so you can relax in the knowledge that timing will never be an issue when touring with us.
2. Local Knowledge
All Paddywagon tour guides are 100% Irish, and you can rest assured that these guys are all very knowledgeable about Irish culture and history. In a conversational and relaxed setting, you’ll find out plenty about Ireland’s hidden history as well as all of the details about our biggest landmarks and beautiful landscapes.
3. Ceol Agus Craic (Music and Fun)
Not only are our tour guides punctual, reliable and knowledgeable – they’re also great fun! We always endeavor to make our tours fun with stories, Irish singing, jokes and plenty of energetic personality thrown into the mix.
4. Value for Money
Booking with Paddywagon means that you’ll pay a lot less than you would for the same tour organised through your cruise ship. It’s just €39 per person for a full-day excursion, and super easy to book online!
5. Best of the City and Countryside
The first half of the excursion is devoted to County Wicklow, otherwise known as the Garden of Ireland. You’ll take in the sites of Glendalough, an ancient monastic settlement, and the Wicklow Mountains, witnessing first-hand the stunning scenery that Ireland is so well-known for. After lunch, you’ll be taken north again to explore the delights of Dublin City, taking in landmarks such as St Patrick’s Cathedral, the Ha’Penny Bridge, the GPO, Trinity College and many more. This is an excursion that truly offers the best of both worlds on the east coast of Ireland in a time-sensitive manner – relax and enjoy!
