This tour is an excellent introduction to Ireland, circumnavigating the island. Our group was wonderfully cohesive and fun, and our tour guide, Andrew Duggan, was outstanding. He combined a love of Ireland with knowledge and enthusiasm that he shared to prepare us for, and immerse us in, each experience. We loved the Giant's Causeway, the Black Cab Tour in Belfast, the Cliffs of Mohrer, Mount Falcon Estate, the Wild Atlantic Lodge, Dingle Sheep Farm, Bantry, Cork and the Rock of Cashel. The numerous catch o' the day specials were outstanding (hake!) and cocktails of Bushmills or Jamesons and ginger ale were enjoyed each night. Travelers should wear layers, a waterproof outerlayer and waterproof shoes, pack lightly, and pace themselves to avoid getting too tired. To the tour company, I would recommend eliminating the Titanic Experience, the distilleries and breweries, and the Blarney Stone because they are all time stealers. I recommend finding somewhere other than the Clifden Station House to stay and spending 2 nights at Mount Falcon to enjoy the amenities the resort has to offer on the off day. Earlier arrivals, perhaps by 3:00, would provide an opportunity to savor what each town/place has to offer rather than 6:00 p.m. arrivals when shops, attractions, and museums are already closed and only restaurants and pubs remain open. I would recommend this tour, and this specific company, to anyone who wants to thoroughy enjoy a trip to Ireland. From the initial contact with the office staff to the considerate and competent tour guides, Vagabond/Driftwood does not disappoint!
