This was on our intinary with the tour group and the group size was 38. I wandered off to explore the town on my own. Could not hear the guide and the tour was too slow IMHO. But the town is fun to explore and I made it back to the bus in time. :-)

Dermot Ryan offers the best walking tour of Kinsale. He is very knowledgeable of the history of Kinsale and shares that knowledge in a relaxed and humorous manner. Although I have been to Kinsale numerous times, I always come away from his tour with added positive experiences
that I am able to share with my friends prior to their visit. Dermot leads you on a leisurely stroll through the narrow streets and there is always interaction with the locals that gives you an insiders look at the fabric of the community. You always have the opportunity to interact with Dermot along the tour and he encourages you to ask questions. Dermot's tour is the best value in town that certainly makes your visit a memorable experience and one tour that you would take again and learn additional local tidbits of this lovely community. Brilliant!!!!

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

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.

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!
