7 Day Driftwood Treasure Ireland

Tour group in Ireland

Not enough words to describe the tour and if I could give 10 stars I would.

Our guide Andrew took us places we wouldn't have known about and gave us a comprehensive history of Ireland.

The small tour was perfect for us and our fellow Driftwooders were all compatible.

I can't say enough positive things about this company except that you should do yourself a favor and book a tour with them.

7 Day Driftwood Treasure Ireland

Ireland tour group on a boat trip beside seals in scenic setting

This was a trip of a lifetime.

Alan, our tour guide, was knowledgeable, fun, and flexible.

Many little stops along the way to experience the culture off the beaten path.

It’s hard to come home knowing such a beautiful place is out there.

8 Day Vagabond Wild Irish Rover

Vagabond Ireland tour group on boat with scenic landscape in background

The experience was incredible.

There were 10 people on our tour and it never felt crowded. We were able to do things on our own or as a group.

Our tour guide was knowledgeable, personable, very accommodating, and flexible.

It was nice not having to plan transport or food for most of the trip. We were able to sit back and enjoy Ireland.

Included On All Tours

A VagaGuide

Your tour will be fully guided by one of our VagaGuides.

That means you'll enjoy the company and services of your very own, highly-trained, local tour guide.

VagaGuides are storytellers, historians and — sometimes, if you ask nicely — even singers, poets and musicians.

They are also trained to be outstanding drivers, safely steering your Irish journey.

Border between sections
Full Days

We believe in providing outstanding value.

It might seem obvious but a 7 day Vagabond tour will comprise 7 full days.

We pick you up at 8am on the first day and say goodbye by 6pm on the last.

Your tour will be fully-guided and your departure is fully-guaranteed by us from the moment two guests are booked.

Border between sections
All Hotels

Your tour includes pre-booked accommodation in our favourite, high quality hotels.

We put great effort into selecting locally-owned accommodation at Vagabond & Driftwood Tours.

Hospitality, locally-sourced food and an authentically warm welcome are all on the menu!

Border between sections

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.

Border between sections
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.

🤫 Secret Booking Tip

Would you like to save even more money?

Top Tip: Book a mid-week flight for extra savings. Extra time in Dublin will also help with lingering jetlag before your fun starts on tour!

Now that's clever!
