7 Day Magnetic North Adventure

Female tour guest in a green forest in Ireland

This was the best group tour I have ever taken - anywhere in the world.

From initial contact to the end of our tour ... everything about the experience was top notch.

There were too many highlights to list them all ... Over the course of the week, we did a little mountain climbing, a good amount of hiking, some sea kayaking, a 30 km cycling excursion, and so much more.

Our guide - Tim - was fantastic. He took us places we never would have found on our own, shared some fascinating history, kept us entertained with his typically Irish ability to tell stories, and educated us on the natural beauty of this magical place.

I hope to be back in beautiful Ireland again, and when I am I’ll most definitely book another Vagabond Tour.

7 Day Magnetic North Adventure

Group sea kayaking on a 7 day Northern Ireland adventure tour

We loved everything about our 7 Day Vagabond Magnetic North Tour.

Every day was an adventure—unforgettable hikes, fascinating history and stunning scenery.

We had a great group on our tour and our driver/guide Dave was certainly an asset to the trip. He was so easy going, a great storyteller and always made us feel safe both on the hikes and in the van along those winding Irish roads.

This was our second tour with Vagabond and we look forward to our next adventure with them.

Our expectations were high ... [Our guide] Andrew blew us away. Really, the whole group was absolutely in love with Andrew, who was full of interesting and educating stories about Ireland and put up with all our shenanigans.

At all times he made sure everyone was safe, well fed and enjoying themselves.

With the words of Arnold Schwarzenegger: we'll be back!

Für unsere deutschen Landsmänn:innen: die Tour ist komplett in englisch. Wenn ihr die Sprache halbwegs gut versteht/sprecht eine klare Empfehlung daran teilzunehmen!

Driftwood 6 Day Great Southern Ireland Tour

6 day southeast tour guide at ruins in Ireland

My wife and I just completed our first tour of Southern Ireland with Vagabond Tours.

To say this met our every expectation would be a gross understatement! The Mercedes van was comfortable, easily accommodating all, was immaculate and our guide Jason was humorous, knowledgeable and a wonderful driver.

Vagabond gets 5 stars from us and we will travel with them again!

Driftwood 6 Day Great Southern Ireland Tour

Scenic ocean view of Ballycotton Harbour and island in Cork, Ireland

If you've been looking at these tours for years ... the time has come to make the plunge. Just do it. You'll never look back at this trip and regret even a moment.

Ireland was the 33rd country I've visited and this was the absolutely BEST vacation experience we've ever had!

Our guide Andrew was exceptional. Experienced driver & guide and very passionate regarding the love of his native land. He's the sort of fella we all wish we had as a friend back home.

Our group was small (only 6) and friendly so we had just a wonderful trip. Hotels we stayed at were all very nice, not a bad one in the bunch. We had some wonderful views from our rooms.

Driftwood 6 Day Great Southern Ireland Tour

6 day southeast tour vehicle and lighthouse in Ireland

The trip was quite simply perfect, and the people of Vagabond, both staff and fans, are beyond generous with their time and advice.

Our guide was Michael, who was local to the area we traveled, and the breadth and depth of his knowledge of the area, as well as history, politics, culture, and geology, was staggering, as was his warmth and kindness.

The hotels where we stayed were in perfect locations, and the small bus allowed us to get to places inaccessible to larger buses.

We are already beginning to plan our next Vagabond trip.

Each morning on tour you'll be served a delicious and filling hot Irish breakfast.

Yes, that means rashers and sausages. Toast and eggs. The whole shebang.

Often there's even more choice, like smoked salmon or whiskey-spiked porridge.

You'll need it too! All that adventuring builds serious appetites.

Border between sections

There are certain must-do activities that we feel no guest should miss.

That's why we've absorbed the costs for essential attractions.

Places like the Rock of Cashel, the Giant's Causeway and the Cliffs of Moher are on us.

Experiences like biking, kayaking and horse-riding happen on a 'pay-as-you-go' basis.

A Native Tree

We'll plant a native tree in Ireland every time you tour with us.

This helps offset the carbon emissions produced by our vehicles and long-haul aviation.

We also love how native Irish tree species promote biodiversity, fostering natural habitats for Irish insects, birds and mammals.
