Barry was a great tour guide. Easy pace And very informative. Explains the history of the town as it relates to the rather convoluted history that is Ireland. Answered all questions and I would highly recommend this tour.

Barry is an engaging and entertaining guide to the history of Kinsale. Be sure to ask him to send you his partner Don’s essay about the Spanish Armada.

A real "must see" for visitors to Kinsale. Barry is an excellent communicator who knows his town and knows how to present it. Nothing overwhelming and very informative.

This is a must do while you are in Kinsale. Barry, our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable and very informative. He grew up in Kinsale, so he knew the town history very well. You won't be disappointed - take the walking tour. Highly Recommend.

Not sure about a website, was written up in Rick Steve’s guidebook. Cost is €8 and group size varies- we had about 20, but he carries a small amplifier. He has a big kiosk at the TI near the harbor.
