Stroll and sit with Don Herlihy and Barry Moloney to enjoy a colourful story of Kinsale down the ages from Medieval walled town to the sinking of the Lusitania. Kinsale was a strategic naval base during the conflict for New World treasure when a pound of cloves fetched two head of cattle and the island of Manhattan was once swapped for a tiny one of nutmeg!
The tour will include a literary twist to celebrate our festival.
