“Best Walking Tour Ever”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2013

If you ever get to Kinsale , Ireland an hour busride from Cork City , you must take this walk Dermot Ryan is a delight to spend an afternoon with . He delivers the history of Kinsale mixed with humor and insight that far surpassed any other tour that I have taken , He also E mailed me copies of a few the sketches he used in his presentation. This is a must activity in the lovely seaside town of Kinsale Ireland my wife and I both agreed that this was the highlight of the day spent in Kinsale . I hihly recommend spendng an afternoon with Dermot he is the next best thing to a Leprechaun

“made the town come alive”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

We so enjoyed Dermot's tour. He was funny, informative,knowledgeable and made learning about the amazing battle that changed the history of this great country and it's people so fascinating. We would definitely recommend this tour to anyone with even a slight interest in history and an appreciation for humour.

“Making history fun...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2013

Dermot was such a lovely gracious host for the beautiful city of Kinsale! He was knowledgeable and provided the hidden gems about his city. His explanation of Kinsale being a "Tidy Town" was hilarious. He also went the extra mile to give wonderful add on value to the tour. He did a follow up by email and provided addition information that we asked for. Not much real service in this world today, but Dermot really gave it! Great tour and one you shouldn't miss!

“What a wonderful tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2013

My husband and I and another couple were recently in Kinsale and we took Dermot Ryan's walking tour. Dermot gave us a wonderful tour of the area while he shared the history of the area. I would definitely recommend taking his tour if you're ever in Kinsale.

“A great tour - brought the town to life !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2013

I loved this tour ..... Dermot brought the town to life ....

A really pretty town, with such a rich history .....

Thoroughly recommend this tour when visiting Kinsale, so you can look behind the scenic beauty, .... and (start to) understand the incredibly rich history of this natural harbour ....

Allow an hour and half .... up to two hours ..... for the tour. It is a very gentle stroll around town, and probably wheelchair accessible (check with Dermot ) ?

Dermot also invites you to email, and he will send you background information.
