Michael’s Journey

Michael Cowell is the founder and owner of MCT Irish Tours. Michael is a National Tour Guide and Tour Coach Driver. Touring Ireland is second nature to him and he garners immense pleasure from it, as is evident in the glowing reviews he has received.

Michael has worked in the hospitality industry since leaving school, starting as a barman before working up to charge-hand and key holder. He left Ireland and toured the world with the cruise industry. His career took him from Cape Canaveral to Nassau in the Bahamas.
