About Ormonde Language Tours
Hi, I'm John and I love everything that is Kilkenny. I was born and raised here and I can't wait to show you around. If you choose me as your guide, you can be safe in knowledge that I am a qualified national tour guide. Languages are my other passion and I have spent the last six years studying for a degree in modern languages. If you are a speaker of French or German check out when tours are available in your language.

Hi Ger, Thank you so much for taking the time to write a great review. It was a pleasure to show you around and I hope you had a great afternoon. You were perhaps too blessed with the weather, but this is the sunny south east. Regards John

This is a considered tour of Kilkenny by John who is on top of his brief. The walk which is around 4km is broken up regularly by stops when John explains the history of where you happen to be. My wife and I would recommend this tour with John as a brilliant way to learn about the history of Kilkenny over a leisurely 2 hours..

I would thoroughly recommend going on a walking tour with John. He is a lovely guy and very knowledgeable. We learned so much from the tour. He also gave us lots of great tips on what to do during the rest of our trip to Kilkenny.
