What People Say About Us

Fantastic walking tour

Fantastic tour & Pat the guide was extremely knowledgeable. No gimmicks like other tours just lots on interesting stories & bit of banter.

Family of 5 weekend walking tour, superb

Pat gave a great presentation of Kilkenny showing us the main landmarks and his knowledge of the city is incredible and detailed. Every place he showed us was historic and interesting to hear about

Definitely worth doing!

It was just the four of us on our tour and we found it very enjoyable and informative. Pat had a lovely manner and certainly knows his stuff. We would say it is definitely worth doing. Thanks again Pat.

Excellent walking tour - don't miss in Kilkenny

Pat Tynan presents his city superbly . He knows every aspect of it and conveys his story in a fresh and interesting fashion. I really enjoyed his tour. Great value

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

Highlight of our trip to Kilkenny

This walking tour with Pat Tynan is excellent. It brings the history of Kilkenny to life. Pat is very knowledgeable but also takes account of the interests and questions of the people on the tour.
