Congratulations to Wicklow based Vagabond Tours who picked two awards at the Irish Tourism Industry Awards last Friday night.
The group who operate out of Newtownmountkennedy were awarded the “Best Ireland’s Ancient East Tourism Experience” Under 25,000 Visitors, and the”Best Environmental Tourism Innovation”
Vagabond also picked up an award at the PURE Mile awards last September.
Vagabond tours was established in February 2002, the brain child of Rob Rankin who had been travelling in Southern Africa with his wife, Amy.
While there, they saw the safari and ‘overland’ tours that were so popular and realised that a more adventurous way of seeing Ireland would be a fantastic experience for visitors. Ireland may not have the lions, elephants and deserts of Africa, but it certainly has plenty of great scenery, fascinating history and a few wild creatures running loose.
Just what you need for a good safari.
Since 2002 Vagabond has grown steadily year on year, building an excellent reputation within the Irish Tourism industry and with customers abroad. We have won several awards and been featured in numerous articles in publications around the world.
The tours are constantly evolving, we put a lot of store in customer feedback and each year our trips have developed accordingly.
