Why wait? With a strong dollar versus euro, guaranteed departures, and full days on tour, there’s never been better value.
Strong Dollar = Best Value Tours of Ireland
With the US dollar surging against the euro – one dollar will buy you €0.87c, at the time of writing – there hasn’t been a better time to go on a tour of Ireland! Why not make it a Vagabond or Driftwood Tour of Ireland?

What does this mean in real terms? All of our tours are listed in euros, the local currency in Ireland. When the dollar exchange rate changes versus the euro, you win!
Compared to February 2018, when a dollar bought you less than €0.80c, you could literally save hundreds of dollars on one of our tours. Our 11 Day Driftwood Giant Irish Adventure, for example, retails at €2,749. At February’s rates, that would cost you $3,436. Today, the very same tour, for the very same price, will cost you only $3,106. That’s a $330 saving!
All our confirmed tour departures are 100% guaranteed. Once you’ve paid your deposit, and there is at least one other guest, the tour departure is locked down.
We are proud to say we’ve never, ever (ever!) cancelled a tour. Never will, either!
FACT: When Storm Ophelia hit Ireland in October 2017, we still sent out tours (safely, of course!).
Experience, Quality and Value
Years of thought, experience and innovation has gone into every tour itinerary. 16 years, to be exact! Rob Rankin established Vagabond Tours way back in 2002. We’ve been obsessing over how to deliver the best customer experience ever since!
We invest in top class people, training, equipment and vehicles. You can expect personalised service and safety as standard.
Small Group Tour Size
We have a maximum of 15 other guests on your tour. Often, this figure is lower. We find that this Small Group Tour size helps us deliver a personal and flexible service. Not only that, but our guests form friendships that often last beyond the end of their tour.
Your friendly tour guide will be able to answer any questions or requests as they arise. Our smaller vehicles escape big roads to explore Ireland’s secret treasures and meet real Irish people
Full Days on Tour
You’ll notice we deliver full days on tour. We know your vacation time is limited and you want to maximise the short time you have.
What does that mean in reality? Other operators will advertise an 8 day tour, for example. But on many of these tours, you will begin your first day in the afternoon and finish your last day in the morning, curtailing the entire experience.
All Vagabond and Driftwood tours kick off bright and early, at 8am. They don’t return to Dublin until the early evening on your last day. When we say an 8 day tour of Ireland, we mean it!
