“Waste of Money, and Somewhat Misleading”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

This was absolutely NOT a ghost tour of any sort. There were exactly two ghosts even mentioned on the "tour". What this really was, was a cheesy theatric and indulgent bit of second-rate theater conducted by two "actors", one of which leads the group on the tour while the other one hides along the way and occasionally pops out or runs through the group in a mask or other costume. I wanted to demand our money back at the end but my wife found it slightly amusing, so she didn't want me to make the request. Make no mistake, she also found it very cheesy and misleading but she enjoyed the walk and the little bit of history we learned. The best, funniest part of the entire tour was when one of the other ladies in our group opened a trash can along the way to throw away her gum and she threw it on the second actor who just happened to be hiding in the trash can! Now that was entertaining! If this was just marketed as a "walking tour" and not a ghost tour I think my expectations would have been different and I might not have been so disappointed. But even then the shtick would need to be greatly improved and more history added to the repertoire.

“Great time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Fun, lighthearted tour through Kinsale. Our guide and his assistant did a wonderful job combining historical information and comedy. I think they do change it up a bit (the language) depending on who is in the group for the evening. Our group had a couple of older children and our friends went on the tour the following night and had quite a few children in their group. Fun to either start or finish the tour with a pint!

“Kinsale Ghost Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

Well worth the time money for the informative yet hilarious tour of Kinsale. Bryan and his young cohort Barry were great. The tour lasted for approximately hour/hour and a half. Everyone meets at the Tap Tavern where the tour begins.

“Better for Children”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013

There were few ghosts in the ghost tour. It was a fun, if a bit slapstick. Strongly recommended for children of all ages while visiting Kinsale.
