Questions & Answers
Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.
When is the best time to come to Ireland?
Anytime between April and September is a good time to visit Ireland. July and August are the traditional summer months but quite often we get better weather in May, June and September – though if there is one thing in Ireland that you cannot rely upon – its the the weather.
What is the tipping policy in Ireland?
Tipping is not generally expected in Ireland but it is always appreciated. Drivers/guides on tour buses are usually tipped at the end of a trip, sometimes with a communal tip collected from all of those on the tour.
What is the policy as to use of alcohol by the guides prior to and during the time they are “on duty” and driving the mini coaches?
Our policy on alcohol for drivers is very strict, if any of them were found to be drinking during a tour or turned up for work under the influence of alcohol then it would be instant dismissal. Our drivers are very professional and we have never had a cause to doubt them.
Who guides the tours?
The cornerstone of any good tour is the guide and Vagabond is fortunate to be able to attract the very best in the business. There is no doubt that they are some of the most passionate, talented, and professional guides in Ireland and as you travel through the country, through wild and rugged landscapes, to hidden historical sites, castles and legendary battlefields our team will keep you informed and entertained and also provide you with an insight into life in Ireland today.
How can passengers get in contact with families etc?
Passengers can buy cards to phone home but it tends to be expensive from hotel rooms. If passengers are bringing a laptop or iphone then they can always Skype home when in a wireless internet hotspot. Also some people buy pay-as you go cell phones or sim cards when they are here and that also gives people back home a way to contact you.
Is internet access available on the tours?
Most of the overnight stops now have free wi-fi internet available. Some have it in the rooms, in some places its just in public areas. There are also lots of stops along the way (pubs, café’s etc) which also offer wifi access. If you bring a laptop they can also buy a pay-as-you-go internet ‘dongle’ which provide internet access through the cell phone network here.
Are there any laundry facilities along the way for the longer tours?
Laundry facilities can be accessed during the two night stay in Dingle.
Is there an option of where to eat each night or do passenger have to eat in the place where they are staying?
Yes, passengers will usually have a choice of places to eat at each overnight stop, apart from the night spent in Gougane Barra due to its remote, yet stunning, location.
Do passengers always eat together in the evenings or can they do their own thing?
That varies from tour to tour depending on what the group wishes to do. Usually the guide will discuss this with the group and should they all want to dine together, group reservations can be made.
If a passenger has special dietary requirements (vegan, gluten intolerance etc), can they be catered for easily?
Most places in Ireland now cater for specialised dietary requirements so that should be no problem.
