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.

Tours leave from the Tourist Office and cost €10 per person. Goes for about an hour and covers basically the two main streets of the old part of town. Does not include the Castle or St Canice's Cathedral. Pat knows his stuff about Kilkenny and...More

We met at the Tourist Info center and it was lightly raining (not a surprise!) Our tour guide showed up and it was just my wife and I. He waited five minutes to see if there were any other late comers then said, 'let's go.'...More

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

Our small group of five essentially had a private walking tour from the Alms House. We were able to park in a parking garage nearby and toured the Medieval Mile in central Kilkenny. Our tour guide was excellent, very knowledgeable, and open to questions with...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.

We stumbled upon this after going to the tourist intimation. We got a great overview of the city with brilliant insights from our guide. Loved it and enjoyed talking with our guide. A very quick and well spent 1,5 hours. Highly recommended.

This tour provides a great overview of the history of Kilkenny and was a perfect way to begin our stay there. Our guide was extremely informative and enthusiastic about sharing his town. The tour is well-worth the 1.5 hrs.
