7 Day World Tour Of Ireland

Private Tour of Ireland group at Gougane Barra

Every one of our guests loved every single day and we couldn’t have been more pleased with how it all came together.

Our tour was a unique one for our group and it was the perfect hybrid for everyone. The adventure activities were truly breathtaking and the people who didn’t want to do those activities were happy at the pubs and sleeping in...

We felt so lucky with what all we got to see and do and the fact that the weather was so good.

Edwina was amazing and we feel so lucky she was our guide and we got to spend the week with her showing us around your fantastic and beautiful country! We had multiple guests who cried when we came home because they didn’t want to leave and one who seriously is considering moving there.

Thank YOU for all you did in making the rest of our trip a huge success. You were a dream to work with and we hope to come back in the future! 😊

7 Day Magnetic North Adventure Tour

Private tour of Ireland group in Donegal

Our family just completed a Private Tour which was wonderful for all of us from age 9 to 76. The plan for our group met the need for variety and action.

Our guide, Rhys, rolled with whatever the day held... He made the trip interesting and was able to answer our historical queries and find great places for all 12 of us to eat together.

The tour you arranged for the north of Ireland allowed us to venture into stunning country on the coast. Our hikes were unforgettable and our son declared one to be the ‘best ever’. Every place held charm of its own...

The places you found for our accommodation were excellent. The grandkids, well, all of us, appreciated the castle stay... It was a magical setting.

7 Day Treasure Ireland Tour

Private tour group with vehicle in Connemara

The whole tour was one of the best tours we have been on.

From the beginning there were great updates provided of the culture and what to expect in Ireland.

We really liked the small bus tour versus a large bus.

Both guides, Brian and Eamonn were fantastic. They provided great stories, a ton of local knowledge and made the trip more enjoyable.

The people were fantastic, the food was great and the drinks were superb... Great scenery, great stops, great hotels...

We will recommend Vagabond to others here!
