Founder and owner of Vagabond (but really wants to be Bear Grylls when he grows up). Originally from Scotland but has lived in Ireland for many happy years with his wife Amy and 3 kids. Rob started Vagabond in 2002 after travelling in Southern Africa and thinking that a more active adventure tour would be a great way for visitors to experience Ireland. Rob is an outdoor enthusiast (hiking, mountain biking, sailing and wilderness camping) also a keen amateur historian (with an MA in Modern History). Rob is currently the president of the Irish Tour Operator Association and is dedicated to fighting for sustainable tourism and travel.
