Loved Barry’s whole approach to his town. Very knowledgeable about the history but with a way of making it fun and interesting. The hour and a half flew by. Could quite easily do it again, I’m sure you’d hear different facts about this compelling place.

Had Barry on our tour -- an excellent tour guide. Very knowledgeable, funny, easy to understand. He was even interested in the participants and seemingly effortlessly brought us into the tour. Perfect hour to learn about this charming and historic town. Thank you Barry.

I could not recommend this strongly enough as a way to learn about Kinsale. Barry is a fantastic combination of knowledgeable historian and humorous story teller. He works hard to keep the entire party engaged, and his enthusiasm is infectious.

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.
