8 Day Wild Irish Rover
Extraordinary Tour, Once in a Lifetime Trip.

In a word this tour and Vagabond as a company can best be summed up as extraordinary. This was hands down one of our favourite trips of all time and the credit for that goes almost exclusively to Vagabond. All of the activities were amazing, all of the food was great, all of the scenery spectacular. The Vagabond Tour got us far enough off of the beaten track to really feel as though we were part of something special and unique. If you are considering taking a tour with Vagabond I would advise that you stop considering and just book it!

6 Day Northern Island Tour
6 Day Northern Island Tour

We just finished our awesome 6 day tour which included both the north of the Republic and northern Ireland. The 6 days were each unique with variety of indoor and outdoor activities (waterfalls, castles, walking tours, titanic museum). The small group size was perfect. I felt very secure for health safety and was able to have my first real vacation since the pandemic. Our guide Sean was knowledgeable, with great stories and kept us on time and entertained.

5 Day Edge Of The World
Mother/Daughter trip

Our 5 day edge of the world Vagabond tour exceeded my expectations! Our guide Andrew was knowledgeable and humorous and we could not have asked for anything more! The places we went, the scenery we took in, the experiences we partook in, the food and company we enjoyed will be remembered always!

Your tour includes pre-booked accommodation in our favourite, high quality hotels.

We put great effort into selecting locally-owned accommodation at Vagabond & Driftwood Tours.

Hospitality, locally-sourced food and an authentically warm welcome are all on the menu!

Border between sections
Breakfasts

Each morning on tour you'll be served a delicious and filling hot Irish breakfast.

Yes, that means rashers and sausages. Toast and eggs. The whole shebang.

Often there's even more choice, like smoked salmon or whiskey-spiked porridge.

You'll need it too! All that adventuring builds serious appetites.

Activities

There are certain must-do activities that we feel no guest should miss.

That's why we've absorbed the costs for essential attractions.

Places like the Rock of Cashel, the Giant's Causeway and the Cliffs of Moher are on us.

Experiences like biking, kayaking and horse-riding happen on a 'pay-as-you-go' basis.

A Native Tree

We'll plant a native tree in Ireland every time you tour with us.

This helps offset the carbon emissions produced by our vehicles and long-haul aviation.

We also love how native Irish tree species promote biodiversity, fostering natural habitats for Irish insects, birds and mammals.
