When planning our trip to Ireland I wanted a small tour. The great reviews of Vagabond are all 100% accurate. I went with my sister and was not into bus rides. Wild Rover is full of hiking, playing ball on Inch Beach, and sooo much great food! Vagabond took what I wanted to do and did it! You will not be disappointed. I would suggest they start tour companies in other countries with our guide Kim leading the way!

The Driftwood tour is meant for moderate activity as one sees the backroads and byways of Ireland in a 16 person bus/van visiting small villages as well as the usual tourist sites but the main focus is on travelers not tourists as one learns the history and culture of Ireland as one travels. Our driver/Guide Mark Doherty was perhaps the best we have ever had on a trip we have taken. Well versed in the history of Ireland and likely to tell a story about Irish music and then burst out in song, you should not miss one of his tours. Mark took the group to places off the regular schedule and advised well on places to eat and visit. One of the best tours we have ever taken.

As you will see this tour gets 5 stars by everyone and it is well deserved. This tour takes you to all the beautiful sights that Ireland has to offer. Our guide, Mark Doherty, was able to work around the cruise ship and big bus crowds because he lives in Ireland and knows the times of other tours and knows back roads to get places and avoiding crowds. Not only is he knowledgeable but he is quite a funny guy with a pretty good voice. He sang Danny Boy while we were traveling along the roads of beautiful green countryside, almost brought tears to my eyes. The Discover tour is a more relaxed tour than the Vagabond but still plenty of activity if you want. There is always a choice of activities that you can choose. The accommodations are outstanding, the people are so friendly and the country is stunning. If you want to see Ireland this is the tour for you.

Hi funisyours, thank you for reviewing our slower paced Driftwood tour option, you are right that there is lots to see and do on these tours too, with choices...Thank you for your 5* review. Mark is a wonderful guide indeed who loves a good sing song. Kind regards, Rob Rankin.

This was the absolute best 7 day tour I could have asked for. There were 6 of us and we did the Treasure Coast Tour, Our guide Tai was so inoformative and went out of his way for us all. Each Day was an amazing Adventure. I would recommed this to everyone! There were only total of 14 of us in our Van … and we all got along great. Again our tour guide went out of his way he was able to get a last minute horse ride on the beach scheduled for a group of us, he would make special bathroom stops when needed. The entire tour from a to z was the most enjoyable!
Side note about Ireland......We were there in the middle of July 2019 and this seems to have been their an exceptional weather change for Ireland. Air Conditioning in Ireland is not common so if you are someone like myself who needs that at night you might want to check ahead to make sure the hotels you are staying in have a fan.

Hello Cindyhideaway, thank you for your review. Sounds like you had a great tour. Good point about AC, newer buildings and hotels would but some of our quirky, smaller, family owned hotels would not have it. We rarely get heat waves but it can happen! Rob Rankin, Owner.
