'The original daily historical walking tour of Kinsale - Now celebrating 22 years!'
This walk is Kinsale's single best attraction
...A fascinating tour ... A joy"
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. 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 swopped for a tiny one of nutmeg!
Beachhead for the last Spanish Armada leading to The Battle of Kinsale in 1601. Star Forts stronghold described by Charles II as 'a place of Great resort for His Majesty's ships of War'.
Sailing port for Dampier and Robinson Crusoe and such a hub for fleets as to lead one 17th c. observer to describe Kinsale as 'laying in the road of the Chieftest trade in all the Worlde'.
