About This Tour
This Vagabond tour covers an area that typifies Ireland's best scenery, warmest welcomes, cosy pubs, and fascinating history. There is so much to see and do, some great activities, lots of time off the vehicles, free time to meet the locals and explores the colourful, vibrant communities that we visit along the way. Six superb days are spent in an area once thought to be the edge of the world, including The majestic beauty of the ring of Kerry, the green fields, Pubs and Dolphin of Dingle, the magic of the Blarney Stone, and West Cork.
The tour heads down to the South-wet of Ireland and is centred around three beautiful Peninsulas - The Dingle, Beara and Iveragh (the last one being famously known as 'The Ring of Kerry). Each one is uniquely different, giving the tour an immense variety of scenery with four very distinct and superb overnight stops.
