Naval veteran Dave hails from Wicklow, the ‘Garden of Ireland’ where Vagabond Tours is based. Aside from his tour guiding skills and encyclopaedic knowledge on Irish history, nature and landscapes, Dave is also a fully qualified instructor in scuba diving, sailing, kayaking, hill walking and — according to him — drinking games!
Before Vagabond, Dave’s career straddled the diverse worlds of trucking, construction, nightclub security, landscaping, winemaking, bartending and outdoor education. But his first job was definitely the most eclectic: processing malt from Guinness brewing for use on farms as fertiliser. You can’t get much more stereotypically Irish than that!
