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

“Fun and Informative Walking Tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013

We very much enjoyed our Kinsale Heritage Walk with Dermot Ryan when we visited Kinsale in July. On each stop along the stroll of an hour or more around the village, Dermot gave us a snapshot from history, which helped us to better understand Kinsale's strategic role in Ireland's history. He communicated both breadth and depth of knowledge of the history of Ireland and particularly of Kinsale, in a very engaging manner. He is obviously a true teacher and a scholar who is still eager to learn more, despite his already considerable knowledge of his subject matter. True to his word, he followed up with an e-mail containing attachments of historical photos and map. We enthusiastically recommend Dermot Ryan's Kinsale Heritage Walks!

“Great walking tour, linking present day Kinsale with the many historical events in this portion of Ireland.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013 via mobile

Dermot hosted a very walkable tour of Kinsale, which provided very informative perspectives of the area. We had about an hour and a half to fill and this was a great excursion. Dermot is witty, pleasant and well informed. I highly recommend this tour. And, he followed up with an email and additional Kinsale themed photos, which was great.

Dermot Ryan was recommended and we are so happy we went with him! He knows his stuff and his tour is very interesting and informative. He promised to send us information while we were there and was true to his word! If you go to Kinsale it is worth taking his tour!
