Northern and North-western Ireland has so much to offer as one of the most diverse, intriguing and beautiful areas of Western Europe and with Vagabond to show you around, it will be a tour that you will never forget.
From the wilds of Donegal to the legends of the Giants Causeway, the Glens and beaches of the Antrim coastline and the historic cities of Belfast and Derry, Vagabond will make sure that you visit areas that other tourists simply don’t reach.
Like all Driftwood tours the trip is an awesome blend of great scenery, fresh air, local culture and history and loads of laughs. Our small group sizes mean an amazing degree of flexibility, so every trip is different and molded to suit you and your fellow passengers.
Our small groups also allow us to stay in small out- of-the-way hotels, offering a warm friendly welcome and first class accommodation. All rooms have private bathrooms and most come with TV’s and tea and coffee facilities.
