Our Story - Rebel City Tours
About Us

Meet Dara, the rebel-in-chief.

I‘ve seen all kinds of world travel experiences on my adventures around the globe.

From the spectacle of the burning of dead bodies on the banks of the Ganges in the holy city of Varanasi in India. To nearly freezing in the Mongolian winter in a yurt (Mongolian tent) in Ulan Bataar. To smuggling letters from a political dissident out of a country with a dictatorial regime in Asia. I think it‘s safe to say that I've experienced my fair share of adventure.

I've lived in South Korea for 7 years, taken the trans-Siberian railway from Beijing to Moscow, and I‘ve swam in Lake Baikal near Vladivostok in the height of the Russian winter.

My name is Dara; chief-adventurer and creator of Rebel City Tours. I can recognize an unforgettable travel experience when I see one. When I came home to Cork city, after a decade of adventures. I wanted to provide other travellers with the kind of stories that I can tell others.

Ditching the 9 to 5.

After doing a 9-5 for a few years, I created my dream job by helping travelers experience their own adventures.

I love the history and culture of Cork city just as much as I love learning about the history and culture of other countries. So, I started off by running a Rebel walking tour of Cork city, helping guests walk in the footsteps of the Irish Volunteer rebels fighting an Empire to win Ireland‘s freedom over 100 years ago.

The Rebel City Tour was a great success and earned me consitent 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor. Since guests would often ask me afterward, ‘do you do more tours?‘. It was soon time to expand.
