7 Day World Tour of Ireland

Tour group having fun in the sea in Ireland

We have only amazing things to say...

The activities were so fun. Hiking every day, off-roading, and picnics.

Dave was our guide... A great story teller, kind guide and great conversationalist.

8 Day Vagabond Wild Irish Rover

Vagabond Ireland tour group on boat with scenic landscape in background

We had a such a great trip from beginning to end.

Our guide Brian was very knowledgeable of Irish history, stories and the best sites to see.

Each day was a wonderful experience from castles, to hiking, cliffs, national parks, stone circles, sheep dog herding... [and] riding horses on the beach.

7 Day Driftwood Treasure Ireland

Ireland tour group on a boat trip beside seals in scenic setting

I would absolutely recommend Vagabond!

We had an amazing guide, Andrew, who was experienced, knowledgeable, funny and kind.

The other people on the tour were great company and we enjoyed many meals together, but there were opportunities to branch out on our own as well.
