Tour Map

“Just waiting at the airport after finishing the 6 day Edge of the World Tour. IT WAS AMAZING!! I cannot say enough nice things about our amazing guide, Aidan. He made sure that everyone was enjoying themselves. The hikes were fantastic. I can’t imagine seeing Ireland any other way – the off the beaten path tour and small group was perfect. Can’t wait to come back and see the North of Ireland next year with Vagabond!”

About this Tour

About this tour

The tour is a fantastic introduction to Ireland, it covers an area that typifies Irelands best scenery, warmest welcomes, cosy pubs, and fascinating history. There is so much to see and do, some great activities, lots of time off the vehicles, free time to meet the locals and explores the colourful, vibrant communities that we visit along the way. Six superb days are spent in an area once thought to be the edge of the world, including The majestic beauty of the ring of Kerry, the green fields, Pubs and Dolphin of Dingle, the magic of the Blarney Stone, and West Cork.

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.

The tour heads down to the South-west of Ireland and is centred around three beautiful Peninsulas – The Dingle, Beara and Iveragh (the last one being famously known as ‘The Ring of Kerry). Each one is uniquely different, giving the tour an immense variety of scenery with four very distinct and superb overnight stops.

Combine your trip with a weekend in Dublin and you will never want to go home.
