About This Tour

Titanic Belfast

Northern and North-western Ireland has so much to offer as one of the most diverse, intriguing and beautiful areas of Western Europe and with Vagabond to show you around, it will be a tour that you will never forget.
From the wilds of Donegal to the legends of the Giants Causeway, the Glens and beaches of the Antrim coastline and the historic cities of Belfast and Derry, Vagabond will make sure that you visit areas that other tourists simply don't reach.

Like all Driftwood tours, the trip is an awesome blend of great scenery, fresh air, local culture and history and loads of laughs. Our small group sizes mean an amazing degree of flexibility, so every trip is different and molded to suit you and your fellow passengers.

Our small groups also allow us to stay in small out-of-the-way hotels, offering a warm friendly welcome and first class accommodation. All rooms have private bathrooms and most come with TV's and tea and coffee facilities.

Tours starting/finishing point:

All tours start and finish at the Grand Canal Hotel, Grand Canal Street Upper, Dublin 4
The tours leave from Dublin city centre at 08.10am on the first morning and get back about 6 pm on the last day. So we would advise arriving at least the night before and if you would be planning to fly out on the last night, then not to book a flight before 9 pm.

*Brexit Notice: Please note all our tours travelling into Northern Ireland will continue to run as normal and scheduled. If you have any direct concerns you can email us.
