It’s difficult to truly do Ireland justice with just one short trip. However, one tour is hoping to make an attempt at it, with a 12-day offering titled the Giant Irish Adventure by Vagabond Small Group Tours.


“Give Ireland 12 days on our Giant Irish Adventure and you’ll see more of Ireland than most Irish will see in a lifetime,” says Rob Rankin, co-owner, Vagabond Small Group Tours of Ireland. “When you leave your heart here, it’s always with the best intention to return. But if that doesn’t happen, you can be content that from the Giant’s Causeway in the very northeast to the Blarney Stone in the south-west, you have seen the very best Ireland and her people have to offer.”


The tour crosses the entire island, beginning and ending in Dublin. It touches on natural, cultural and historical icons. Activities include horseback riding, kayaking, hiking and cycling. During it all, guests enjoy local foods from Irish farms and stay at locally owned accommodations, including one stay at a castle-style country house.


The tour starts at €2,899 per person and 2019 departures take place June 3, 10, 17 and 24; July 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29; Aug. 5, 12, 19 and 26; Sept. 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30; and Oct. 7.
