If I could give 10 stars, I would still want to be able to give 12!
Oct 2021 • Couples
This is ABSOLUTELY the BEST way to see Ireland! The small group (we had 11) van allows you to go to places big busses cannot access. Our drive/guide, Edwina, was everything we could have asked for and more! She’s very skilled, knowledgeable, fun, funny, friendly, and helpful. We had enough time to visit on scheduled stops without being rushed or trying to kill time. Each hotel was different and all were very nice. My husband was in a manual wheelchair, and he was accommodated and able to enjoy the trip in comfort. We met 9 strangers that felt like family by the end of the tour. I would 1000% travel with them again!

Amazing guide- made our trip!
My wife and I went on this wonderful 7-day tour this past September with very good friends to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Our total group was fifteen travelers leaving Dublin to explore Southern Ireland. The best part of our experience turned out to be our incredible guide Andrew. He made our week so enjoyable due to his great personality, cleaver wit, and genuine love of Ireland. Our group really enjoyed his historical information, extra efforts, precise driving, personal touches, and high energy each day as we explored the unique sights on our tour. It was amazing how much we covered and experienced in so many different cities, towns, and villages during our time in Ireland.

We would definitely recommend Vagabond Tours to our friends, and would certainly like to go again and take the Northern Ireland tour. We would want Andrew to guide us through all that amazing part of Ireland as well. Vagabond runs a first class operation. Their comfortable Mercedes vans allow you to relax and enjoy the countryside while they do the driving and daily planning. We look forward to our next Irish adventure!

Beautiful views and fascinating history
Oct 2019
This was our first group tour, and our first visit to Ireland. The tour exceeded our expectations. There were a lot of wonderful stops, including some with more time to explore - that is obvious by looking at the itinerary. Our tour guide, Pat, really made the trip special which seemed to be the general consensus amongst our entire group. His knowledge and way of sharing the history both ancient and more recent really set the context around the sites we were visiting. I think we both came away with more knowledge and respect for the history of Ireland. We were well prepared thanks to the FAQ and tips provided by Vagabond. I would definitely go on another tour with Vagabond (including into Scotland should they expand).

Ireland as it should be seen
Sep 2019
Our recent 7-day Driftwood tour was incredible! The small bus tour is the way to go and I can't recommend Vagabond Tours highly enough. Many of the places you visit simply aren't feasible with a larger tour bus. It's so much better with just a dozen or so people. So many fascinating tour stops, so much history to absorb. Some major sites, of course, but many out-of-the-way places and roads where the scenery is non-stop. In addition, the quaint guesthouses are a perfect complement to the tour. We had two guides during our tour, Aisling and Pat. Both were excellent in their own right. Our first guide, Aisling, gave us info on pop culture and the vernacular lessons. Our second, Pat, was absolutely outstanding with his depth and detail on Irish history. He is the perfect soundtrack to fabulous tour; a true walking / talking encyclopedia. 'The folk' are definitely on his side as he managed to arrive at seemingly every destination just as the rain stopped!

A couple of Driftwood 7-day Treasure tour tips for future bookings -
1. Don't opt for a sit-down lunch if you want to see any of the small towns (Tralee, Kenmare, Bantry, etc.) as you have very limited time. Bring snacks and eat as you explore or find some quick take-away sandwiches.
2. Galway is superior to Dingle for general shopping, if you're into that.
3. The Fish Box in Dingle is outstanding! Order 1 starter and 1 main for 2 people (trust me).
4. If the weather is nice on your trip to Garnish Island, skip the house tour (40 min), plenty to see outside.
5. Take the optional driving tour around the peninsula on your Dingle day.
6. Most important - lean on the Vagabond folks prior to booking to find out which tour Pat is doing and book that one!!

Really great tour for a range of ages/activity levels
Aug 2019
My brother, sister and I (all in our 30's) went with our 60-something year old mother and we all had an amazing time. The activities were suitable for older folks but weren't boring or slow for younger people.

Our guide, Henry, was funny, smart and clearly new a LOT about the history, natural beauty and people of Ireland. The company owner, Rob, actually led the last day or so of our tour and he was great too- really accommodating, funny and he knew everything there is to know about Ireland's history (he must've been a history professor in another life, but like, a fun one).

My family and I all over-packed and were shlepping around the "SUVs of suitcases" as Henry referred to them. I'd recommend bringing comfortable, outdoor-friendly clothes, layers, waterproof shoes and jacket, one or two nicer outfits for dinners out or with the group. I know several people on our tour did laundry at hotels along the way, which I wish I'd thought of beforehand.

We were all very satisified with our experience and felt that the Vagabond team went above and beyond to ensure that everyone got to do and see what they wanted. I'd definitely use them again and recommend to friends looking to get a really good taste of Ireland without the difficulty and stress of planning out every detail themselves.

Hello Rachel S, thank you for your 5* review, I think we all over pack...its nice to have options but then again smart packing really does make sense, great advice there. Thank you for the kind words, I do know a bit about history alright and very glad to hear I can make it amusing! Rob Rankin, Owner.

My family and I just finished a 7 day tour. I cannot say enough about it. It was exactly what I had hoped for - a cozy trip through the both the high points and little known havens of the southwest coast. Our guide, Andrew, bent over backwards to ensure that we had a marvelous time. I can't recommend it enough.

A Great Way to Experience Ireland
Sep 2019
The 7-day Treasure Ireland trip exceeded our expectations. The small towns and pubs were a perfect "off the beaten path" experience, and John was an excellent tour guide and driver. Even the weather cooperated - only a couple of minor sprinkles to mar the vistas. I would highly recommend this trip.

Great tour of Ireland
Aug 2019
Took the 7 day Discovery tour in a small bus with 14 passengers. We got into places the large tour buses can't go. Being a small group meant there was some flexibility on places to go - places not mentioned on the itinerary. All the accommodation was great and all included excellent breakfasts. There were all kinds of food choices at every stop. We had two driver/guides. Henry was with us for most of the trip, and was super. The last day and a half, the owner, Rob, drove, as Henry had another commitment. Rob provide a great explanation of Irish history.

Hello Ian T, our guides always like to throw in a few secret surprises on tour, each guide has their favourite! Our small group tours really allow for that flexibility. The odd time, I am allowed out of the office and I always enjoy meeting our guests who choose Vagabond Tours, Rob, Owner.
