“A native, steeped in Kinsale's history and loves to share it.”
Reviewed March 30, 2010

We really enjoyed our discovery walk with Dermot Ryan. It opened up Kinsale and its history for both of us, and was a highlight of our few days in Kinsale and Cork. It was satisfying to have a native who is steeped in the history of the area and obviously loves to impart it to a wider audience as our guide. Don't miss it.

“Dermot Ryan is the best.”
Reviewed March 22, 2010

My husband and I were in Ireland for the first time. We had been to Galway, The Cliffs, The Ring of Kerry, and later to Dublin but when we talk about Ireland, we talk most fondly of Kinsale. We took the Heritage Walk with Dermot Ryan and the place came alive to us. He knows his town's history and told it like he was telling the tales of an interesting family member. Kinsale has history, beauty, palm trees, and Dermot. Great place with a charming storyteller. Donna Keller

“Kinsale Heritage Walk. Don't miss it.”
Reviewed March 18, 2010

What a super time we had with Dermot Ryan last summer. He gave us a very thoughtful, fascinating walking tour of the best parts of Kinsale, and kept our small group thoroughly entranced with tidbits of local knowledge. He gave us a glimpse of Kinsale in the past century, pointing out a locally-famous doorway and the old shoreline. The tour with Dermot was more like a leisurely stroll with a friend through the home town he knows very well. Whether you are brand-new to Kinsale, or know something about this beautiful town’s amazing history, you will not go wrong with Dermot.

“Dermot really knows his stuff!”
Reviewed March 11, 2010

My mother and I did the Heritage Town Walk with Dermot Ryan, on our recent vacation to Ireland. He takes history and makes it fascinating. He injects humorous anecdotes and bits of trivia to the actual tour. His photographs, documents and artifacts add even more to the stories of Kinsale's past. He is a treasure trove of information. A bargain for the price!
