Paddle Wagon Tours question

Hi, we will be staying in Adare for 6 nights and planning on taking several road trips. I've been debating between visiting Dingle Peninsula and/or Ring of Kerry. I've also looked into day tours which Paddle Wagon tours offers from Limerick to both locations. Do you think it would be worthwhile to see both or just visit one area? Has anyone done the paddle wagon tours to either of these places? Although, we'll have a rental car, we've never driven on the "opposite" side of the road and a bit hesitant. Any advise would be great appreciated!

We used Paddy Wagon tours for a private tour to Cork and the Blarney Stone. Four of us in the group. Our driver was Gabriel (sp) and he was wonderful. He was so personable and had some great, funny stories. Picked us up at our hotel, The George in Limerick, in a spacious Mercedes van at 9am and we were back around 5:30pm. He took us to some wonderful little towns and some unique pubs.

HI, I have the same type of question but we have no car and we only have a day to spend on a day tour from Limerick. Between Ring of Kerry and Dingle day tour with Paddy Wagon, which would people recommend? Thank you in advance for your help.

well, this is going to be a long day on a coach, so I will say Dingle because it is slight nearer, quite a bit shorter and should involve less sitting on a coach time (Its also a lot nicer!).

As a choice of day tour from Limerick then the Dingle tour will be the shortest option.. Their other option from Limerick is I believe the Cliffs of Moher and Burren tour..

Which is nicest is highly subjective and on Trip Advisor's forum disproportionately bias.

Isn't it interesting that when a large majority of people have one opinion, and Tony2Phones has a different one, it's "disproportionately bias" (sic)

There is another tour company operating out of Limerick called Barratts Tours. They are highly regarded and worth looking at as well


Tony, is Auntie Dingle. He does his best to steer people away from the area so his opinions are negatively biased against the area.

I know the Ring of Kerry, Dingle and Kerry all relatively well and I would say that any one of the three will provide you with a day to remember.

What you should do is go to www.googlemaps.com and use the yellow man to trace each of the itineraries. Then make up your own mind.
