Our Story – Cork Adventure

My name is Dara; chief-adventurer and creator of the Rebel City Tour. I can recognize an unforgettable travel experience when I see one. I‘ve seen all kinds of travel experiences on my adventures around the globe.

Adventures of my Own

From the spectacle of the burning of dead bodies on the banks of the Ganges in the holy city of Varanasi, 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.

When I came home to Cork city, after a decade of adventures. I wanted to share my passion for history, culture and travel with 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, regaling guests with stories of heroes and villains from Cork city’s past.

The Rebel City Tour was a great success. Since guests would often ask me afterward, ‘do you do more tours?‘. It was soon time to expand.
