Today our team has expanded rapidly. We will neither confirm nor deny the tale that Paddywagon Drivers are taken from their parents at the age of 6 and brought to the Isle of Skye in Scotland and trained by the warrior woman Scathach in the art of war-making and social intercourse and then unleashed on the world of Irish tourism (you can decide that during your adventure in Ireland). We will however try to introduce you to some of the present clan below - Irelands finest Tour Guides!
The Paddy’s Palace Team look after our crown jewels - our budget accommodation centres - Paddys Palace Dublin and Paddys Palace Killarney. They have years of experience as travellers and in accommodation management, you are assured of a luxury, clean, safe, relaxed, and thoroughly enjoyable environment.

The Driver/Guide’s story motto: "Truth on our lips, strength in our limbs and purity in our hearts " Our motto is the actual motto of Na Fianna, The High King of Ireland’s elite bodyguard until the 4th century AD, led by the near legendary Fionn McCool.
