This was a fun way to spend an hour or so, with a gentle stroll round the southern most harbour town of Kinsale with Dermot - he was witty, knowledgeable and funny. An ex-school teacher with the gift of the gab - who could make Kinsale's politcal and social history and architectural sites accessible to the group without trivialising it.... More

You will love the quaint fishing village of Kinsale even more after you understand it's roots from one of the best. Dermot Ryan is a native and lives and breathes this community's rich heritage. Oh, and he's funny too! We can't guarantee you'll get the warm, blue sky day we had. But, sun or rain, it's worth the 5 Euros!

A day spent in Kinsale is highly recommended. It is a beautiful waterfront town with flowers everywhere. Dermot Ryan's tour was interesting, informative and fun! I wish I could have spent more time there!

Kinsale, 18 miles south of Cork city, a beautiful harbor and breathtaking views. We have spent half a day enjoying Kinsale but I would recommend a full day. This historical town was the scene of the siege in 17th century in which the Spanish troops took over the town to help the Irish against Queen Elizabeth. Picturesque harbor, you can... More

We went on Dermot Ryan's tour early on Wednesday 9 July. I have to say that this was one of the best historical tours we have ever been on! Dermot's local knowledge, pride and obvious love of his town shone through, and made this tour for us. We also found him humorous and very affable, able to adapt his talk... More

Dermot brings the history of the town to life in a very enjoyable way. The heritage walk is informative, but also extremely entertaining, a truly unique experience that I highly recommend. Kinsale is a fantastic place to visit and this tour is the icing on the cake.

I was with a small group and we did the Dermot Ryan Heritage Walk and found it to be excellent. The walk and times can be found at the tourist information office on Pier Road in the center of town. Dermot did a wonderful job. Sincerely, Paul Shea

At breakfast, it didn't look like a good day to explore Kinsale by taking a walking tour with Mr. Ryan (with the rain pouring down), but luckily he is a hardier fellow than the 'other guys' who give tours of this wonderful seaside burg (who canceled their tour for the day), as he was at the prearranged meeting time right...
