Overall we had a terrific experience. With the exception of El Calafate, the accommodations were all exceptional. The 5 day cruise from Porto Arenas to Ushuaia, although expensive, was worth it. Exceptional weather for end of March also helped. Highlights were Bariloche, Puerto Natalas and Torres del Paine (Chile postcard peaks), and Glacier Alley on the cruise. Ushuaia showed what 50 mph winds look like but the perpetual rainbow made it a great final stop. Working with Lost World was a pleasure. They were very responsive and followed up on everything including the days of arrival and departure in every city.

Super fun! First time here with our 1 year old son and he enjoyed it and it even made us feel like kids again since we were able to join him in the play area! Food was ok for the price. Surprised that the pizza tasted better than some cheap pizza shops. But overall we would definitely make the trip back to this place.

I took a 7-day tour back in 2013, and I loved every minute of it! The tour guide was very friendly and very knowledgeable, and it still in touch with people I met on the tour. We all became like a close group of friends that week. It was very hard to say goodbye and I still get reminiscent and sad that it was only a week. I cannot recommend you all enough!

      About Shamrocker Adventures

      Founded in 1999, Shamrocker strives to provide variety and fun on their Ireland tours.

      What Makes Shamrocker Stand Out?

      As their name suggests, Shamrocker specializes in Ireland tours. They offer a wide array of experiences and a wide range of budgets as well, making them the perfect stop for first time travelers to Ireland.

      Most of their tours are between 3-7 days, which is a great amount of time for travelers considering a wider UK visit after Ireland. Most of their tours are large groups, but you also have the option to book a private tour and/or a special interest tour that has a more specific focus such as history or food.

      Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Shamrocker?

      For young independent budget travelers seeking a fun experience in Ireland, this is a great place to start. Food is usually not included so it’s up to you to arrange this yourself - but they attract the kind of traveler who will be interested in having this kind of free reign.

      Tours combine a mix of nightlife, active outdoor days, history and culture - great for travelers who enjoy all three, but weighted more toward the first two.

      They are on the young side with their tours - typically and 18-30 crowd will enjoy traveling with them. Tours often include drinking excursions, and there is a definite “party” feel that some may enjoy more than others. Groups are small to large, and the emphasis is on having a good time and getting to know your travel companions while exploring Ireland.

      Top Destinations

      They operate throughout Ireland and Northern Ireland, visiting top sites, hidden gems, and many pubs!

      Shamrocker Travel Style

      The Shamrockers travel style is all about revealing the fun adventurous side of Ireland. Tours are between 3-9 days typically. Accommodations are in multi bed hostel rooms, with the option to upgrade to private twin rooms if you are traveling with a friend or significant other.

      The main mode of transportation is by bus. While some days will involve a lot of driving, the time off bus is full, lively, and frequent. You might also travel by ferry during your trip - which is included in the price. Most entrance fees for tours etc are included in the price, however a few may be left optional in which case you will pay your own fee at the time.

      Why Choose a Tour With Shamrocker?

      If you are a young, outgoing and adventurous traveler who is not opposed to the backpacker travel style, and looking for a fun way to explore Ireland then this could definitely be the tour company for you.

      Shamrocker tours are ideal for independent minded travelers - all meals and drinks are up to you and some excursions are optional. If you enjoy exploring on your own a lot then this will be a good fit. They have regular departures as well, so this can be a great choice for spur of the moment decisions!
