NEWTOWNMOUNTKENNEDY, Ireland - Oct. 24, 2019 - PRLog -- Confronted with a fast-approaching October 31 vote, this week the EU has been asked for another Brexit delay. Rob Rankin, founder and owner Vagabond Small Group Tours of Ireland, is taking a wait-and-see-attitude concerning the UK Parliament's vote to uphold or not the exit date that could change how the UK does business with Europe -- and also on the Emerald Isle.

Rankin's team offers a list of ideas to visitors to Ireland who may want to know what the fuss is all about. In Dublin, the gateway city for Vagabond Small Group Tours of Ireland (https://vagabondtoursofireland.com/), historic attractions are two-a-penny. Guests are invited to discover for themselves the bullet holes on the General Post Office that betray its role at the heart of the 1916 Easter Rising. The National Museum is housed in a former barracks. Glasnevin Cemetery holds an array of independence heroes and an excellent museum.

Highly recommended in Belfast is an on-own Black Cab tour that offers a unique perspective on the capital of Northern Ireland. Guests listen to expert personal commentary on a guided tour through unionist and nationalist communities, learning about the late 20th century 'The Troubles' while viewing political murals and signing names to a peace wall.

And other itineraries including Cork, also known as the Rebel County, share stories of the action here during the early 1920s War of Independence and ensuing Civil War. Michael Collins was ambushed and assassinated at Béal na Bláth. Picturesque Cobh was a center of resistance in 1916.

"It's a no-brainer to say that this ours is a complicated history," adds Rankin. Vagabond Tours of Ireland assists its guests in scratching the surface of the history of why there are two separate Irelands. This history goes back well into the 16th century when the island was like a piece of fabric being stretched between Gaelic-speaking Catholics and the English who spoke English and who were eventually predominantly Protestant.

No matter Brexit's outcome – or not – Rankin and his team are high on 2020 bookings, already strong.

"We envisage no major disruption. The bright side is, we hope, more opportunity to explain Irish history," he says.
