Took the Driftwood 6-Day Small Group Tour of Northern Ireland. What a fabulous trip! Our driver/tour guide, Angela, was very knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. Everything was well planned and went smoothly. I would highly recommend using this company for future travel in Ireland.

Andrew was a wonderful guide, with the small group/Van we could go places the larger bus could not. The hotels for the kingdoms tour were excellent. Andrew also went above and beyond, I cannot say enough about what a nice time we had. They even have plan b sites to visit based on weather. It's Ireland so expect rain and wind, at least some days.

Thank you again for sharing your positive experience, we hope to welcome you back for more adventures in the future!

Where do I start? Dave our guide/driver was the best. Treated everyone like they were special. Not just me..haha. We really didnt know what to expect and we were pleasantly delighted. Our traveling mates made the trip the best. We had no whiners and we all just went with the flow. Weather threw a couple of curves and Driftwood (DAVE) made great diversions and no time wasted. We were able to make an unscheduled stop in the County of my ancestor's which had a breathtaking waterfall. Dave was an awesome historian and story teller. Never letting the truth ruin a good story. We all had many hard belly laughs. Learned much about Irish heritage.
100 million Welcomes. If you are having a hard time choosing a tour company. Driftwood is A1 by us.
All of the hotels were good to really good. For some reason we were not able to stay Mount Falcon estate but Driftwood found a really nice beachside resort for us and comped us dinner and a drink. We were also refunded 50 euros each at the end of the tour.

Thanks again to Dave and Driftwood for a fabulous vacation.

Hi Lewis & Kim, wow what a review! Thank you so much for your kind words and recommendation.

We're delighted to hear you had such a good time with Dave, he is a wonderful guide and a big part of Vagabond and Driftwood. We're sorry to hear that the weather threw some curveballs but it sounds like you still had a great time. Those unexpected moments often become some of the most cherished memories of a trip!

Sometimes it can be out of our control if there is a change in the hotels but we do our very best to make up for it!

Thanks again for your glowing review, hopefully we will see you again in the future.

There is so much to see over the eight days that it is hard to list all of the activities. We were never bored. Our trip leader was excellent and far exceeded our expectations. The company is very environmentally conscious and has the rating by Ireland to prove it!

The country: Ireland is as beautifully lush and green as it is in the pictures, only better. The people are friendly and passionate about their country. There are beautiful views in every direction, from the Cliffs of Moher to Kilkee by the sea, Dingle, Cork, and Tralee. An added bonus from this tour was learning about it's history and people through the eyes of our local Vagabond guide. I felt safe and welcome everywhere we went.

Vagabond Tours: Vagabond tour company is top-notch. Our guide, Tadhg, was knowledgeable, kind, personable, and on time. He shared historical stories of this lovely country, interesting local folklore, as well as details about plant and animal life. He travels during his off-season and understands what it's like to be curious about another country. He was very patient in answering all of our questions. He connected us with guides and tours based on the interests of the group.

We loved our visit to Ireland and all of the memories we now have, and a big part that was our experience with Vagabond Tours.
