Vagabond: As Seen on TV

Vagabond tours was recently featured on RTE 1’s highly acclaimed entrepreneurial show Higher Ground which follows the progress of, and gives mentoring to, a series of start up companies around Ireland. Each episode also features a case study of an established business with similarities to the featured start-up enterprise. Vagabond was used as the case study of an established tour operator as the film-makers mentor and follow the progress of Paul Harmon who is setting up an electric bike touring company in Westport. Hopefully Vagabond has been able to pass on a few helpful hints to Paul to assist in getting his business off the ground.

New For 2011 -Less-Active Small group tours by Vagabond.

In addition to our excellent small group adventure tours in Land Rover’s, for 2011 Vagabond will be offering less vigorous and adventurous trips in more conventional Mercedes minibus’s. The small groups sizes, flexibility and off the beaten track exploring of our current trips will remain, but for those who would prefer a more sedate and less active view of Ireland we will be incorporating more stops such as historical houses and gardens, free time to shop and relax and more accessible ancient sites.

Accommodation will stay the same. We will be staying in quality, locally owned guesthouses and hotels in small rural communities and departure dates will remain the same as the Vagabond trips. The idea being that groups can even spilt during the day, with the active members taking the Vagabond tour and the less active can take the less active option.

Travel will be by Mercedes minibus, or similar, with easier access than the ‘Vagatrons’ and greater space inside.

Further details and full itineraries will be available very soon, but if in the meantime you would like some further information on Vagabond’s new range of tour, please contact us on or call us on the numbers below.

Vagabond the Supermodel

Recently Vagabond was contacted by Vodafone (Ireland’s largest mobile phone network) because we had been chosen from their 100,000+ Irish business users here to be featured in their new ‘business dreams’ campaign. Since then we have been photographed standing in a river for four hours (and I even had make up on), been plastered all over the national press, radio, and bus-shelters – and we have also been filmed for online advertising and been included in their direct mailing campaign. The message is, that with Vodafone, anyone’s business dream can come true and our business dream is that our passengers go home loving Ireland as much as we do – and we think you will.

As a thank you to customers who have booked or are thinking of booking a tour with Vagabond, we have been in negotiations with some of Dublin’s best visitor attractions to be able to offer you discounts off the entrance fees.
