Vagabond - Tours of IrelandVagabond - Tours of Ireland
Award-winning tour operator established in 2002 by Rob Rankin who adapted the African overland safari model so as to offer a more adventurous way of seeing Ireland. It offers two distinct types of tours: The Vagabond Adventure Tours, using custom-built 4x4 vehicles, range from 7 to 12 days in length and focus on experiencing the outdoors. Driftwood Journeys of Discovery (6-11 days) use a 16-seater mini coach and focus on culture and history. Small group sizes allow for customised itineraries according to a group's particular preferences. Green practices include working with local suppliers, not-printing brochures, carbon-offsetting and tree-planting. Vagabond Tours are the only tour operator in Ireland to have EcoTourism Ireland Gold certification.
