The marvelous month of May is upon us. This can only mean another #MyVagabondTour photo competition!

In Ireland, May is known as Bealtaine (pronounced be-yal-tana). The pagan festival of the same name celebrated the arrival of summer. Days are getting longer. Flowers are blooming. Our Emerald Isle is getting warmer (at least small bit). Once again we are looking for the best photos from your Vagabond or Driftwood tour. This month’s prize is a delightful Irish handmade chocolate hamper, kindly donated to us by Skelligs Chocolate.

How to Win

To be in with a chance to win, you’ll need to select your best Vagabond or Driftwood tour photo(s). Share with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter. Don't forget to include the hashtag #MyVagabondTour.

The Prize

Skelligs Chocolate are a family run business on the beautiful Ring of Kerry. When you visit Skelligs Chocolate with us, you can see the delicious chocolate being made, ask questions and taste all of the freshly made treats. In 1996, Skelligs Chocolate moved from the kitchen table to a small factory. Their passion for chocolate-making is still evident today. The company welcomes visitors to enjoy the best artisan chocolate experience in Ireland.
