We went on a small group - just us - tour. Pat was extremely knowledgeable and gave a great introduction to the history of Kilkenny.

Pat Tynan's walking tour was the least interesting walking tour we've done anywhere ... and we've done lots. He displays no enthusiasm for the subjects he speaks about and, to top it off, speaks barely above a whisper. Just awful.

Pat seemed like a nice guy who knew his stuff. We had two friends who didn't want to be on the tour and acted like jerks. Not being disruptive but not paying attention at all and walking way ahead of the tour. The rest of...More

This walking tour is a great way to see sides, and sights, of Kilkenny that you probably would not see otherwise. Pat was a great guide, fun and engaging. It doesn't include the castle, but this is well worth doing.
