⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ "Each day felt so rich and full. It was hard to believe how much we did in five days ... This 5-day tour is a wonderful chance to experience a remarkable amount of this beautiful country in largely active ways (hiking, walking, horseback riding, biking, etc.). For us non-tour people, it was perfect." Guest Review - Aug 2023
I was so excited to find Vagabond Tours. They took all the stress out of the trip planning.
Dave was our tour guide on the trip and was awesome, friendly, and helpful. He provided history and facts about the land as we traveled.
The accommodations were perfect. The hotels and Vagabond worked perfectly together to ensure we were taken care of.
I would highly recommend booking with Vagabond Tours. It lived up to every expectation we had and then some.

Stop looking at other tour companies in Ireland - Vagabond is the way to go!!
We did the 5 day Edge of the World active tour last month and it was so much fun - in fact they exceeded our expectations!
The entire itinerary/schedule was thoughtfully planned and executed without a hitch. We stayed busy but it was not overwhelming in terms of the number of sites/activities covered each day.
The accommodations were all excellent with spacious rooms/comfortable beds, helpful friendly staff and delicious breakfasts each morning.
This 5 day tour worked well with our schedule constraints and we got a great introduction to all things Irish!
Would definitely recommend this company and hope to travel with them again someday.
