Founded by Marcus Magee in 2015, Rural Adventure Tours began when Marcus returned to his beloved Ireland with his guitar after years of backpacking and working in over 40 countries around the world. He had initially qualified as a computer programmer, worked for a few years in different roles but travelling had always been his dream from a young age. He fell in love with a danish girl on a scuba diving course in South East Asia and they eventually returned to Ireland to put down roots and start a family.
"What I love about travelling is the people you meet and connect with. I am not able to travel to the same extent I did in the past but Rural Adventure keeps the travelling feeling alive. We love sharing our stories about Ireland, singing songs, but also connecting with our customers and hearing their stories. "
Rural Adventure Tours is a family owned business and continues to grow and win awards. Rural Adventure guides are friends of Marcus and passionate about Ireland, the outdoors and sustainability in the same way Marcus and his wife Julie are.
"It is important to us to always have the personal touch on all of our tours and to support our local businesses. We are passionate about sustainability so we give all our multi-day tour groups the unique opportunity to plant a tree on our family farm"
We hope to welcome you to Ireland soon.
Experience Ireland as one of the locals.
