Fantastic tour with Kieran.
Kieran McCarthy gave an excellent interesting Rebel tour.
He concentrated on the rebellions and Civil War of the 19th and early 20th century in Cobh. He brought the times to life with lookouts, ambushes, doorways and alleyways. He is very passionate about his subject and has obviously spent decades on his research and even published his own book. The tour was interspersed with other interesting details about the Cathedral, Titanic and other sites in Cobh.
5 stars for the tour. One of the highlights of our Ireland tour.

We were only participants on the tour on Wednesday 4th of May so for us it was really personalised.We we’re sorry that other people on our cruise did not share this very unique, worthwhile experience .Kieran McCarthy was knowledgable passionate and gave a perspective on the history of his own town that could possibly only have been delivered by a local person .The pace and delivery were perfect , it was obvious he was a well known character in this this very lovely town.It also gave us an appreciation of the history of the whole island of Ireland which previously I thought I understood and how many towns throughout the whole country would have their own stories to share Thank you Kieran the rebel tour was something that helped make our cruise an excellent experience.

Kieran is an incredible guide, he brought us on a fascinating historical tour of Cobh, giving context and insight to the rich history of the town at key pivotal points in irish history. He painted colourful pictures of historical figures and the often grim realities of life during the struggle for independence, he revealed the living references in names of streets and buildings. His storytelling is second to none, definitely recommend to anyone who gets a chance to visit Cobh! Thanks again Kieran! -Alex and Ellie.

Kieran gave us a very informative and engaging tour of the history of Cobh and its strategic importance in the Irish fight for independence. He brought the stories to life with his great explanations and the passion with which he explained how events unfolded. This was a great and lovely time for my girlfriend and I despite the bad weather.

Thank you Kieran.

Proper history, delivered with passion and knowledge. This is the best way to get to grips with the real details of what the fight for freedom meant to the people of Cobh. Kieran’s stories place you in the heart of the action with all the characters and their backgrounds. We loved it.

Fantastic, informative, historical tour of Cóbh. Kieran is a natural story-teller which makes the tour all the more enjoyable. Definitely gave us a deeper understanding of the part this place played in the rebel history of Ireland.

Kieran is a very engaging story teller, and we were enchanted with his detailed thorough knowledge of local and national history. I loved the feeling of standing where this particular event happened and realising how recent most of this history was. Particularly loved the bit about secret tunnels through a house!

We met Kieran outside the local museum and he took us around the town and through 170 years of history, from Cove, to Queenstown, to Cobh.

We went to several locations around the town where local people fought for their freedom from the British. We learnt about the timing of the events in relation to national and international events. The visit of the Queen, the sinking of the Lusitania and the Libau/Aud, the Easter Rising. Linking in the American and French Revolution. An invasion into Canada. And the comings and goings of important Irish leaders.

All linked through the village of Cobh.

We booked this on the basis of the recommendations online and in TripAdvisor and were not disappointed. Kieran clearly knows far more about Cobh than any guidebook will tell you. He has lots of stories and snippets of information that only comes from thorough and extensive research, and he tells it all in a very interesting and dynamic way. The walk shows more of the town than you might expect and gives a real insight into the development of the town as well as all the feelings of resentment that grew over the years resulting in a free Ireland. Thank you Kieran!

Kieran is a great storyteller, making the history of Cobh really come alive. He also puts the events happening in Cobh into the wider context of Irish history, so it all pieces together nicely. When in Cobh, don't miss your chance to take this tour.
