Ireland: Work as a shepherd for a day on an immersive tour

Become a shepherd for a day on an 'immersion excursion' through the southwest of Ireland

Travelers who want to get in touch with their inner shepherd may want to consider a trip to counties Kerry and Cork in Ireland with Vagabond Adventure Tours.

This “immersion excursion,” which includes horseback riding on a Dingle Peninsula beach, culinary outings and foraging for wild foods by sea kayak, is called “Kerry UnCorked.”

Other highlights include a day working with a shepherd on a hill farm and cycling in Killarney National Park.

Participants on this eight-day journey will spend two nights in the small towns of Dingle and Kinsale. Accommodations include the stately, family-run Bantry House and a night of luxury “glamping” in safari-style tents overlooking the sea.

Dates: July 12, Aug. 15 and dates in May, June, July, August and September 2016.

Price: $1,975 per person, double occupancy. Includes accommodations and breakfasts. International airfare not included.
