Barry Moloney took us on a fascinating tour of old Kinsale, a port city which was fortified with a huge wall until it was attacked by "the last Spanish Armada" in 1601. We developed an immediate connection with Barry due to his work as a local guide for travel guru Rick Steves, whose sessions he has attended in Edmonds, WA.... More

Don led us around Kinsale and shared 90 minutes of non-stop information about the history of the town. After the tour we were able to visit places he described with greater insight and understanding.

A friend and I joined a small group of visitors on Barry's wonderful tour of Kinsale. He provided lots of information in an entertaining manner. No one even complained about the rain that was falling, as it felt like a totally appropriate addition to the area's stories, and allowed us opportunities to duck into interesting places. I would highly recommend... More

Barry knows his stuff and provides great stories and humour sprinkled into the history. We were there the week of the 100th anniversary of the Lusitania sinking (just off the coast at Kinsale) and Barry weaved a great story of the local response.

Barry was fabulous explaining the varied history of Kinsale. History with humor is the best. Very knowledgeable. It is about 1.5 hours that just flies by. Would love to visit Kinsale again.

Took the 9:15 tour with Barry and thoroughly enjoyed it. His delivery of the historical details at a decent academic level with a touch of humor kept us smiling. Well worth the time for his insights to the relevance of Kinsale harbor and town. BTW…umbrellas are provided.
