We made such great friends along the way. I credit a lot of this to our tour guide, Tomas who was so inclusive and encouraging to all.
I consider Vagabond the best choice because they are flexible and open to suggestions ... for example, Tomas helped arrange a rowing experience for us with short notice based on us just mentioning interest.
It was obvious that Vagabond's only goal is to make sure their customers have an excellent experience while visiting Ireland. Highly recommend!

We had a fabulous time on this tour! If you are thinking of booking Vagabond just DO IT! You won't regret it.
The coach was comfortable and safe. The stops we made were well-timed and amazing!
It was nice being in a small van rather than a big tour bus. We could unload quickly to see things and the van could get to places that a big tour bus could not.
The hotels chosen by Vagabond were very nice - all very comfortable.
VERIFIED GUEST REVIEW, OCTOBER 2023
We had the perfect trip to Ireland ... We wanted to see the history and beauty of Ireland, and we did just that.
Every day was full of off the beaten path experiences. The pace was just right for us. Accommodations were unique and comfortable. We stayed in a castle one night!
I feel we know so much more about Ireland and the Irish people. Traveling with a small group is definitely the way to go.
I also loved all the great planning information we got before the trip, so that we came prepared.
If Ireland is on your bucket list, be sure to go with a Vagabond Driftwood tour!
