Many years ago, in a time before smartphones, Instagram and Game of Thrones, an Irish tour company was born in the city of Dublin. We were small, but our dreams were mighty! The world has evolved mahoosively since then, but we’ve stuck to our roots. We’re ridiculously proud of our home, and we love showing it off. Authentic, local experiences are what we do best; whether you’re standing on a cliff top, or being spun around the pub dancefloor; we’ll probably do the spinning! These are the things that will never change. Shamrocker Adventures - taking budget travellers on epic tours of Ireland since 1999. Ireland has that special something you can’t quite put your finger on. It’s in our stories and songs, our coastline and countryside. It can be felt in the traditional pubs, and heard in the sexiest of accents. Oh, and don’t forget the famous Irish charm. We supply all of the above – and then some. There’s nowhere like Ireland, and we’re here to prove it.
