This award-winning travel company offers two styles of culturally immersive travel.
Vagabond Adventure Tours (https://vagabondtoursofireland.com/
Why wild? Because the tour, recognized by National Geographic Traveler as a Top 50 Tours of a Lifetime, is off-road as much as it's on, relying on signature 4x4 tour vehicles to go where other sightseeing companies tend not to tread.
Why Irish? Because the tour blends pubs, people, castles and lore into the hearts of active travelers.
Why roving? Guests are never rushed traveling from the west coast of Ireland and the peninsulas of the southwest all the way up to Connemara.

The €1,919 per person double rate (before the early booking discount) includes eight full days of touring, seven nights' accommodation with breakfasts, services of a professional Vagabond tour guide, guided walks, entrance fees to historical and archaeological sites, demonstrations of local craftsmen at work, ferry excursion tickets and taxes. Activities require a good level of fitness for walking and cycling 2.5 hours each on undulating paths. Additional 2019 departures are weekly on Sundays through mid-October.

"This tour brings tourists into a region that for decades was overlooked because of border issues," said Rankin. "Basically, nobody wanted to visit Northern Ireland because of the 'troubles' there. This only started to change in the early 2000s really. The northwest county of Donegal, despite being in the Republic of Ireland (the 'south'), was almost cut off from the rest of the state geographically. Thus, its tourism did not develop in the same way as in other parts of the country." A border region deemed "very hard" up until early in the 21st century emerged with its own identity and culture, partly formed by the years of political turmoil and violence.
The per person double rate of €1,509 (before the early booking discount) includes six full days on tour, five nights' accommodation with full Irish breakfasts, some entrance fees and relevant taxes. Additional 2019 departures are May 5, 19; June 16, 30; July 14, 28; Aug. 11, 25; Sept. 8, 22; and Oct. 6.
