What is the Rebel City Tour?
Our vision at Rebel City Tour is to get our guests excited about Cork city history and keep alive the memory of patriots and heroes, from both sides of the conflict, who lost their lives during the birth of the Irish nation.
Our mission; the Rebel City Tour has one mission and one mission only, to help guests take a walk in the footsteps of history in the city. You are guaranteed to never see the city in the same light again!
