"This is ABSOLUTELY the BEST way to see Ireland!

The small group (we had 11) van allows you to go to places big busses cannot access.

Our drive/guide, Edwina, was everything we could have asked for and more! She’s very skilled, knowledgeable, fun, funny, friendly, and helpful.

We had enough time to visit on scheduled stops without being rushed or trying to kill time. Each hotel was different and all were very nice...

We met 9 strangers that felt like family by the end of the tour. I would 1000% travel with them again!"

πŸ’Ά Why Now Is An Excellent Time To Book!

The US dollar is at its strongest level against the euro for years.

USD$1 dollar will buy you around €0.92c, at the time of writing.

What does the strong US dollar mean for your Vagabond or Driftwood tour?

It means... SAVINGS!

Our tours are priced in euros. If you're paying with a strong US dollar, our prices effectively drop in price.

Our 11 Day Driftwood Discover Ireland Tour, for example, retails at €2,479.50. Compare this currency rate with February 2018, when a US dollar bought you less than 0.80c.

If you bought at that rate, it would have cost you $3,099 in dollars in 2018.

Today, allowing for conversion, the very same tour will cost you approximately USD$2,685.

That's a $415 saving!


Of course, this strong dollar rate will not hang around forever. So please hurry!

What's Included?

Full Days

We believe in providing outstanding value.

It might seem obvious but a 7 day Vagabond tour will comprise 7 full days.

We pick you up at 8am on the first day and say goodbye by 6pm on the last.

Your tour will be fully-guided and your departure is fully-guaranteed by us from the moment two guests are booked.

A VagaGuide

Your tour will be fully guided by one of our VagaGuides.

That means you'll enjoy the company and services of your very own, highly-trained, local tour guide.

VagaGuides are storytellers, historians and β€” sometimes, if you ask nicely β€” even singers, poets and musicians.

They are also trained to be outstanding drivers, safely steering your Irish journey.

All Hotels

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.

No hotel chains here!

Please note, there's a small single supplement for single room occupants. Contact us for more details.

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.

Border between sections

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.

Our Guarantee

Once 2 guests are booked, that departure is guaranteed.

Or your money back.

Believe it or not, before 2020, we had NEVER cancelled a tour.

That was over 18 years of touring and hundreds, if not thousands, of tours.

Please read our flexible terms and conditions for more information.

🀫 Secret Booking Tip

Would you like to save even more money?

Top Tip: Book a mid-week flight for extra savings. Extra time in Dublin will also help with lingering jetlag before your fun starts on tour!

Now that's clever!
