Vagabond 7 Day World Tour - May 2019 - BEST TRIP
I cannot fully articulate how amazing our experience with Vagabond Tours of Ireland was. From the initial inquiry for our intended Vagabond 7 Day World Tour of Ireland to the actual booking and confirmation of our tour, the service was impeccable. We were able to enjoy all the gorgeous scenery, historic sites, hike amazing trails, sea kayak at Dingle Bay, horseback ride on the Dingle Peninsula, bike through Killarney National Park, experience local Irish pubs...

Best way to see Ireland
Our group of 3 couples signed up for the 7 day "world tour of Ireland". We choose this tour company based on the number of outdoor activities and adventures available to us. We were very happy with the itinerary, activities available for us to participate in and all of the accommodations. I recommend this tour company without any reservations....
TripAdvisor RatingView on Trip Advisor
Unforgettable!
The Mood – upbeat adventure. As a single, I wondered how I would fit in the overall dynamics of the tour. Within one hour of the beginning our tour, we bonded as a big family for the week. This important framework set the tone for the entire tour.

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. No large, impersonal hotels here! Your tour will overnight in locally-owned establishments (in some cases for generations). Receive a heartfelt welcome, often from the hoteliers themselves.
