Ireland - The home of Father Ted’s Craggy Island, where there's a museum dedicated purely to leprechauns and a festival crowns a goat king, Oddball Tours is on a mission to show you all the fascinating and unconventional sights, tours, activities and festivals taking place around Ireland throughout the year. Click on the photos for just a few examples.


Oddball Tours is a one of a kind Irish tourism business. We create "off the beaten track" experiences showing locals and tourists alike, people old and young, aspects of Ireland normally overlooked by travel guides sending you to places other tours don't and won't go - the oft ignored as mundane but in reality fascinating, bizarre and downright odd sights and attractions the 32 counties of Ireland have to offer.​


With custom designed packages ranging from personalised itineraries for self-guided tours to complete packages with accommodation, transport and concierge, we cater for groups big and small. Start from anywhere in Ireland. We design tours for all modes of transport - car, public, bike and feet! Mystery tour itineraries possible also.

climbing a slag-heap in a post-industrial Belgian town, camping out in a mud hut on an isolated Indian reservation in Mormon-country Utah, getting lost & spending Halloween night with some friendly police men in an NYC subway station…wearing a tutu; a story-telling session in a Beijing shanty town; mezcal tasting in Mexico; spending time with members of the Amish community in America’s mid-west; visiting an abandoned Soviet satellite station in northern Latvia; attending the surreal & visually stunning Mass Games in North Korea complete with 100,000 performers... touring Detroit's abandoned ruins; traditional cooking in Morocco; hanging out in unrecognised Russian breakaway republics; a Communist theme park and underground KGB captive bunker experience in rural Lithuania; dressing up on the abandoned Battleship Island off the south coast of Japan; traversing Heroin Highway in Eastern Tajikistan; wandering through cobblestoned streets in Dracula’s Transylvania; night time border crossings in Iran; wedding crashing in Guatemala; enjoying a frankly sacrilegious graveyard tour in the Deep South’s New Orleans; exploring former Communist-era bunkers in the Czech Republic and Art Deco Eastern Germany to trawling London for the most recent graffiti paintings of elusive street-artists...
