Our Story - Rebel City Tours
About Us

Meet Dara, chief-adventurer.

I’m Dara, the spirited traveler behind Rebel City Tours. I know an unforgettable adventure when I see one. Upon returning to Cork City after a decade of wanderlust, I aimed to share the kind of tales that spark conversations, laughter, and lasting memories with fellow adventurers like you.

I‘ve seen all kinds of world travel experiences on my adventures around the globe. Exploring the world has been a tapestry of extraordinary experiences, from witnessing Varanasi’s solemn death rituals on the Ganges to braving the Mongolian winter in a traditional tent. I’ve even carried letters for dissidents from oppressive regimes in Asia. Adventure runs through my veins.

For 7 years, I called South Korea home, rode the trans-Siberian railway from Beijing to Moscow, and dared to swim in Lake Baikal during Russia’s frosty winters.

"A woman’s place is in the revolution" - the Rebel Walking Tour

Ditching the 9 to 5.

After doing a 9-5 for a few years, I created my dream job by helping travellers 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 consistent 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor. Since guests would often ask me afterwards, ‘do you do more tours?‘. It was soon time to expand.
