Tour Map

This was my wife’s 70th birthday present from our children & I tagged along. It was superb from start to finish. Paddy our driver / guide /mentor / career was amazing. Scenery, history, archaeology, etc. – he made it all so interesting.  The hotels we stayed in were varied, all comfortable with good food. Everywhere was so beautiful and the people north and south of the border so welcoming.

About this Tour

About this tour

Vagabond is heading north on a journey through thousands of years of fascinating history, dramatic scenery, and legendary places, to the heart of one of Europe’s least visited regions. The tour boasts some of Vagabond’s best walks and most off-the-beaten-track experiences.

The tours leave from Dublin city centre at 08.30am on the first morning and get back about 6pm on the last day. So we would advise arriving at least the night before and if you would be planning to fly out on the last night, then not to book a flight before 9pm.

Northern Ireland and north-western Ireland have so much to offer as one of the most diverse, intriguing and beautiful areas of Western Europe.  With Vagabond to show you around it will be a tour that you will never forget.
