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 background, and have some funny characters acting it out as a surprise along the way.... 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, (it was a very good crowed that showed up). Now I must tell you, I... 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 two guys who run the tour put in a lot of effort and do attempt... 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 as well as adults.

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 from the two tours complemented each other.

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 group but it wasn't a problem - for the most part we could position ourselves... More

We took the tour on a warm August evening. The tour starts at the Tap bar at 9.30pm. The cost is €10 for adults. At first I was quite sceptical but I soon warmed to the whole thing. The tour is run by Brian and David who put on a most entertaining tour with a few surprises along the way.... More

Spent a drizzly evening (which only made for more atmosphere) with Kinsale Ghost tour on a large group of around 30 with wife and 2 kids (8 &6). The tour is part history walk, part street performance and more than scary enough for the kids!!! 100% Irish fun with enough history to hold the more serious interested and comical enough... More
