About Vagabond Adventure Tours of Ireland

Vagabond is Ireland’s original and best multi-activity and cultural adventure tour company. Offering 6-12 day scheduled adventures or private tours to the hidden corners of Ireland. Our small group sizes and professional, yet relaxed and informal, style makes Vagabond a welcoming and safe way to see the off-the-beaten-track side of Ireland, to learn all about its history and culture, to take part in some refreshing activities and to enjoy great Irish scenery, welcome, music and pub life. As the Irish Times wrote "you leave the beaten track (and the well worn tourist trail) far behind…a great way to meet others and see the country"

Vagabond is perfect for visitors to Ireland who want to:

• Meet Irish people and learn all about Ireland, its history and culture

• Explore Ireland’s most remote and beautiful places right away from the tourist trail

• Relax within a safe, informal, friendly and welcoming environment

• Enjoy an active, refreshing and stimulating Irish vacation

• Retrace family roots or they have a spiritual calling to Ireland
