Small Group AdventureTours of Ireland get you off-road and into the culture.

National Geographic Traveler Top 50 Tours of a Lifetime

Small Group Adventure Tours is the perfect small-group holiday for people who don't want a coach tour but still want to fully experience the grand country they are visiting.

Our range of shorter breaks and week-long vacations combine imaginative mixtures of breathtaking scenery, relaxing exercise, local culture and cosy accommodation.

Instead of buses or minibuses, we use 4WD Land Rovers, so our group sizes are smaller and more flexible and we can explore areas far beyond the reach of normal tours.

You'll leave the road behind and drive along beaches, through rivers or up muddy tracks; You'll walk in the mountains, surf in the Atlantic, ride a horse or play golf; You'll clamber over ancient ruins, learn about pirate queens, retrace the steps of pilgrims or search for your ancestors.

And at the end of the day - a roaring fire, some music, great food and a pint.

With a maximum group size of only 13, Small Group Adventure Tours is more like travelling with a group of friends than being stuck on a coach tour. Our groups tend to be made up of individuals, couples and small groups of friends - all are very welcome.

Our small group sizes are a huge advantage for passengers in so many ways:

  • Our service is very personal, you even get to sit up front with the driver and have a chat.
  • We don't have to use large hotels in big towns, but get away from the crowds and stay in cosy B&B's and smaller hotels in some of Ireland's most remote and picturesque spots.
  • It allows much more flexibility, so if there is something specific that people in the group want to see or do, then we can almost always arrange it (even last minute).
  • There is no feeling of being herded around the country, it is your tour and everyone gets to make decisions. Because of this no two tours have ever been the same.

Vagabond Toursoffer small-group adventures with unique Ireland vacations.
