Some comedic street theatre with interesting history and a couple ghost stories added in. These guys are funny and deliver even some painful puns with great aplomb.

It was so funny! It is definitely not serious and scary, but more of a spoof. Even my wife thought it was pretty funny and she doesn't usually laugh at the things I think are funny. I think they throw in a little history as...More

I read about this Ghost tour in Rich Steve's Book, he said it wasn't as much a ghost tour as it was entertaining. I wasn't going to miss out on this recommendation.. Our first night in Kinsale we made sure and get there on time,...More

You might be scared on this tour, but not because of any ghosts. It is more of a walking tour of Kinsale at night, with a few historical (or not) stories and some cheesy acting. Still, it was fun, even if a little overpriced. The...More

This is not so much a ghost tour as it is a history and entertainment tour of Kinsale. And it exceeds expectation for that! The guide is very funny and shares his knowledge of the town with the group. It is definitely fine for children...More

This was a riot! We walked through some interesting and creepy areas of town getting a bit of history with a lot of humor. Our guide was fabulous and we had a great time. Definitely worth it!

So much fun, only about 10 people in our group. The host was great and very knowledgable of the city. We actually saw a part of the city we had missed during the day.

Wonderfully pleasant evening wandering around with a small group to learn about the history that shaped Kinsale. Informative, funny and with many shrieks along the way. We'd already done a morning tour that day (by chance, with the same guide - David) and the info...More

This was a great break from all the battle-heavy history we had been learning about on our trip. We went to the Tap Tavern about 15 minutes before 9 and waited in a room in the back while the crowd gathered. We had a huge...More
