Simple, easy, yet highly informative, funny, and beautiful. It was fascinating to learn the history of Kinsale Harbor. Great job, Barry! Thank you!

My friend and I totally enjoyed the 1.5 hour walk and talk through Kinsale from the Tourist Information office by the harbour to the Dutch style City Hall and museum. We did not cover a great distance and i was glad I had my cane with attached seat to sit on while Barry regaled us with his very entertaining commentary... More

We loved visiting Kinsale in July. We enjoyed the great restaurants, comfy B&B, and our walking tour with Don and Barry! We found the tour informative, fun and a great history lesson. Barry was professional, and a very friendly host. If you are going to Kinsale...this is a must!

There's a reason that this tour is ranked #1 of things to do in Kinsale. We thoroughly enjoyed our 90 minute walk through Kinsale with Don. I was hoping to have Barry lead the tour as I enjoyed his contributions from the Rick Steves podcasts, but he was taking the day off for his son's christening on the only day... More

We went on this tour on a rainy/sunny Sunday and got an intimate tour of Kinsale despite the large group. Before we went on the tour we were thinking of buying an umbrella but decided not to. When we arrived, we were personally greeted by Barry and to our delight given large umbrellas in case it started to rain during... More

Barry was very knowledgeable about the land and sea history of this charming and very important port town. The Spanish and French role in Irish history is fascinating, particularly for history buffs and those interested in family geneaology, Barry was... More

This tour definitely lives up to it's reputation. Don was our guide and he was filled with historical information concerning the town of Kinsale, as well as interesting trivia. We had a pleasant easy stroll around town along the area where the sea used to meet the town. Don explained how the town changed over time and why. He also... More
