Following the award of the COVID-19 Safety Charter the Kinsale Heritage Town Walk is open for business again, leaving from the Tourist Office at 10.30 a.m. or by appointment (086 8267656). The Charter is a Government-endorsed initiative to reinforce confidence in domestic and overseas visitors in tourism businesses. It is designed to give comfort and reassurance to employers, employees and customers that a business is ready to re-open safely.

Dermot Ryan is rated the best Tour Guide in Ireland, by the Irish Independent and as the top independent attraction in Kinsale on TripAdvisor.

He is an approved Failte Ireland guide and the only Kinsale member of Association of Tour Guides of Ireland, the national guiding association with international recognition.

Guiding since 1966, he uses maps and photographs to show how the history of Kinsale is the history of Ireland and his walks are both informative and entertaining, giving tourists an opportunity to see how the town has evolved over the past 800 years.
