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.
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.
