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.

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.
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
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.
It’s an authentic experience and you feel like you’ve had a chance to connect with a local who loves the city and its history.
We went on a small group – just us – tour. Pat was extremely knowledgeable and gave a great introduction to the history of Kilkenny.
