A must do while in Kinsale. Barry was very informative but also made the tour fun because of his sense of humor. We LOVED this walking tour!

This is a must do in Kinsale. Don gave us an exceptional tour and history lesson on Kinsale. His enthusiasm for his town is quite evident. Loved every minute.

When new to a town, one of the best ways to get a nice overview is on a walking tour. Don & Barry's was exceptional in every way. We arrived in Kinsale and went straight to the Information Center. Within an hour we were gathering outside to begin our stroll. It was a fairly large group, but Don was very... More

We decided to take the "Historic Stroll" based on the recommendation by our host. It was everything and more than we thought. The tour was interesting, refreshing and with some great humor. A perfect way to spend the morning in Kinsale!

This stroll is long but they do a great job of explaining Kinsale history which is very interesting. You also get a feel for where things are in the town which can be a little confusing.

Barry was so charming and friendly and knowledgable that I just didn't want our walking tour to end although it began to rain. He provided my daughter and me with an umbrella and we were soon under Barry's spell living in the history of Kinsale. I thought the tour might be physically difficult for me as I am almost 80...

Barry provided us a delightful tour of his historic city. He was bursting with enthusiasm as he told how a single battle nearby may have been the reason we all speak English rather than Spanish, how those from the End of the World talk differently, how much of the current city was reclaimed from the sea, and many, many other...

Barry is wonderful, funny, and informative. As many other have stated, he knows it and loves it. You can ask him anything about Kinsale and Ireland and he'll have the answer. I believe Barry makes you love Kinsale even more. Don't miss it.

There are few people who know and who can make history come alive, Barry is one of these people. My wife and I went on a one hour walking tour that lasted over an hour and a half with about ten other people. Barry was friendly in a informal way that was comfortable and sincere. His tour made our stay... More
