You really should be required to do this tour if you stay in Kinsale. You will learn an amazing amount as you stroll through town, generally not walking far and stopping a about four locations. Don't worry about the rain, umbrellas are provided.

Kinsale is a very colourful town and quaint. we loved the side streets with all of the artisan shops and cafes, its a very very busy place and the amount of traffic made it slow to get around and find parking but all in all a brilliant experience. we would go back again late summer but not during high season....

Our first morning, we joined Don and Barry’s historic stroll around Kinsale. We spend an hour and a half or maybe 2 walking around with Don and learning about the town and its history. It was well worthwhile.
