Kinsale was one of my favorite places in Ireland. Barry, our tour guide, was charming, funny, knowledgeable, and made the history of this lovely town come alive. This was one of my favorite tours. If your in Kinsale don't miss this tour.

We had Barry as a tour guide this morning for a stroll through Kinsale. Barry was charming, gracious and extremely knowledgable. We learned a lot about the importance of Kinsale to the history of Ireland. Barry made a potentially dry subject interesting, Thankd Barry!

We had read that this was a great tour and our experience certainly proved it! Barry is humorous, knowledgeable, and so accommodating. The small fee is so worth the experience you will enjoy.

Kinsale is a beautiful village and a fine place to wander about and explore, but taking a tour with Barry taught me far more than I would have been able to learn by myself. He pointed out graves in the local cemetery from the Lusitania and explained that the ship had sunk nearby, showed the remains of the city wall... More

Kinsale is a lovely village to visit, but Barry's tour gave us a great deal of history and insight that we would have missed out on otherwise. He was also curious about other locations we were traveling to in and beyond Kinsale and gave us tips for our visit to Dingle. This tour was a good recommendation from Rick Steves.

I thought that this was a very good experience. Don't usually do tours but they happened to be starting one when we were walking by and so we joined in. A bargain, in my point of view. I would recommend if convenient, but wouldn't go out of my way.
