Tour Map

“We just wanted to thank you, Dee and Paddy for an incredible adventure with Vagabond. We loved South West Ireland – the clouds, the ocean, the green fields, the vistas. It was great to have such nice weather throughout the trip. We enjoyed all the hikes, the thrilling boat ride to the Skelligs, the kayaking with Fungi in Dingle, the visits to the sheep farm and the bog, and of course the wonderful music. We can’t wait to tell our friends about this trip and show them the photos”

Maria and Dave, 6 day To The Edge of The World tour, June 2012

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 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.
