We enjoyed an entertaining and educational morning stroll with Don learning about the importance of the port in Irish history. Nearly 2 hours very well spent, and the fee seemed very reasonable. Don is delightful, articulate and knowledgable.

This tour is a great way to learn some of the history of Kinsale without having to read the book. Barry is super friendly and really enjoys talking with everyone. There is not a lot of walking with the tour but comfortable shoes are helpful.

Barry is so personable that he makes this tour wonderful. The history was great but I wanted more about the quirks and flavour of Kinsale. However, the history of how Kinsale came to be on the grand scale of the world market was interesting. Totally...More
