Barry gave us a fun and informative tour of historic Kinsale. Really helped to better understand the town as we explored. The pace of the tour was good and the size manageable. You could easily hear Barry over the street noise.

A great walking tour of a beautiful town. Barry was very friendly and was a wealth of information of Kinsale. In my limited amount of time here, I was very happy to learn about the history here.

We have been to Kinsale several times and sadly never done this tour. Barry did such a marvelous job I'm sorry we hadn't done it earlier. His humorous way of explaining the history of Kinsale makes this tour a "not to be missed". You'll feel...More

The tour ends 2 mins walk from Kinsale Tourist Office.
Hi, Can anyone help me? I am planning to spend a week in southern Ireland over Christmas time this year with my 21 year old daughter. We have never been to S. Ireland before. I have boiled it down to 4 locations where we have places we can stay. These are: Kinsale town centre, Courtmascherry, Baltimore and Crookhaven, Mizen Peninsular. Which would anyone suggest as being the best spot to base up for a week. WE will have a hire car, and enjoy visiting pubs, taking walks (weather permitting), and eating out. I am basically South African and my daughter studies in London. Thanks for any input. Ian
