"Let's go!" in Spanish

I have heard "vamonos," but based on what I have learned, I would have guessed it was "vamos a ir" or "vayamos" (imperative). So which is correct?

"ir" by itself has a ton of uses but probably the most common is "to go".
Vamos a la escuela. We go to the school.

"irse", reflexive, means "to exit a place".
¡Vámonos! Let's go! (Let's get ourselves outta here!)

Shouldn't it be just Vamos?

Vámonos is more "let's leave," as far as I know.

¡Vamos! is enough! You can hear that in chants in football games. Like ¡Vamos Madrid!

I thought that vamos meant "we go" or "we are going"?

Yes it's right, it's "vamos". You use vamos (let's go) when you give an order, for instance Vamos! (Let's go)
