Travel In October - Save $$$s!

  8 Day Wild Irish Rover Tour

This discounted rate is available across all scheduled tours departing in October.

Need another great reason to book Ireland in October?

๐Ÿ’ต $1 USD = โ‚ฌ1 EURO ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Our prices drop as the $US dollar strengthens against the euro.

Right now, the US dollar is at its strongest level in 20 years!

$1 USD dollar will buy you โ‚ฌ1 at the time of writing.

What Does Dollar To Euro Parity Mean For You?

(Clue: IT MEANS SAVINGS)

Our 11 Day Driftwood Discover Ireland Tour, retails at โ‚ฌ2,866.50.

If you bought in December 2021, when a US dollar bought you less than โ‚ฌ0.87c, the same tour would have cost you around $3,295 in dollars.

Today, the very same tour will cost you the same as the euro rate - USD$2,866.50.

You would save over $333. Chaaa-ching!!

Hurry! This strong dollar rate will not hang around forever.

Included On All Tours

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 โ€” sometimes, if you ask nicely โ€” even singers, poets and musicians.

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

Border between sections
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.

Border between sections
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.

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.

Border between sections
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.

Border between sections
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.

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!
