We enjoyed our 5 day vagabond tour in September 2022!! Sean was our guide and we thought he did an amazing job accommodating the group. He was knowledgeable and shared just the right amount of details to enhance the trip. He was especially good at making everyone feel comfortable and like family. We will definitely be doing another trip.

"MOTHER/DAUGHTER TRIP"

Two horseback-riders on a 5 day active tour of Ireland

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!

Great small group tour of southwest Ireland!

Our guide, Sean, was fun, very knowledgeable, a great storyteller, and concerned for our enjoyment and safety. We especially enjoyed the off the beaten track itinerary, the daily hikes, the historic spots, the beautiful scenery and the lovely accommodations. I would recommend Vagabond without reservation.

You won't be disappointed

If you are interested in small, intimate, active tours this group is for you... Wonderful group of 11 travel companions. Small out of the way accommodations... Some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Fantastic music in pubs and a small concert in Dingle. Our guide Nick was awesome. So easy going and flexible. Gave the group alternatives and made us laugh through the entire visit.

Accommodation

A hot shower after a mountain hike. A real fire. A pint. We assure you that wherever you stay with us, you’ll love it.

We put great effort into selecting accommodation on Vagabond tours. Your tour will overnight in locally-owned establishments (in some cases for generations). Receive a heartfelt welcome, often from the hoteliers themselves. No hotel chains here!
