The experience begins in the centre of Kilkenny. I will give you an overview of the city's history and why it is laid out as it is. We then move on to various historic buildings and sights. At each location, I give a brief description, it's uses over the years along with an account. The tour is very history orientated, but we will cover other areas such as sport, culture and nature. The tour takes around two hours. The tour takes in the medieval mile but also other areas which are as important, and so we cover almost the entirety of the medieval walled city, which other tours do not.
Other things to note
The route is approximately four kilometres long and it takes two hours. The city is very old and some pavements are uneven or narrow.

My name is John. I was born and raised in Kilkenny. I have worked as a tour guide since 2017. I am now offering my walking tours in English, previously I only offered tours in foreign languages. I am studying to be a national tour guide, I have a diploma in hotel management, and I am also currently studying for a degree in modern languages. I was previously a tour guide in Kilkenny castle and in Jerpoint park. I have a very good knowledge of local history, I constantly continue to read and explore this area. I also have a local expert badge. When you book a tour with me, I will give you an easy-to-understand history but please ask me lots of questions of the areas you wish to discover more about.

I had managed a good walk the night before meeting John for his tour. Whilst I would have found most of the places myself just walking around Kilkenny John's knowledge of his city was excellent and I learnt so much. I don't know how he retained so many facts and he was able to add deeper explanations when necessary. The tour went on a bit longer than planned as we nipped into a new museum to escape the rain briefly. Loved this tour and really recommend it for the content and the value.

We have a great 2+ historical hour tour of Kilkenny with John. He was raised in the city, and knows the history through and through. The tour was well planned, and he gave us plenty of time to ask questions and spend time in various places. I highly recommend John's tour!
