Pat Tynan and his passion for local history
As part of our research before leaving for our trip of Ireland, we read about the tour that Pat Tynan conducts on Trip Advisor. We walked to the Information Centre from our B&B in pouring rain and as we were a bit late the receptionist kindly contacted Pat on his mobile and we caught up with him at the Town Hall. Pat’s passion for Irish history made the one hour tour very interesting. Well worth the 10 Euro cost.
Great tour of the Medieval Mile with Pat
This tour leaves from the tourist information office each day at 2pm. The tour guide Pat is a local who clearly cares about his city and knows a great deal about it. The tour is very good with a lot of local information and history. Definitely worth the €10 we paid
