    A must see tour
    Kilkenny is such a beautiful medieval city and what way is better to experience it than a guided tour through the most history soaked parts by a guide who comes in an authentic functional suit of armour! He had such an in dept knowledge of the city and its unique history I must recommend this tour! I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish and Dylan recommended a wonderful restaurant for us to eat in afterwards, he truly knows his city!

The knight tour of Kilkenny was one of the best things my family and I did on our trip to Ireland. Dylan (our tour guide) was so knowledgeable, and had answers for all of our questions about history and medieval Kilkenny! It was extra fun, as he encouraged us to participate, and gave us exclusive access to a historic tower! Walking through the ancient city with a knight in full armor was something we will never forget. Everyone book this! Thank you Dylan!

Dylan was an excellent Tour guide and was very kind to our 3 kids and generous with his time. Tour was very interesting and Dylan is very humorous which the kids enjoyed very much.I would highly recommend this tour. My apologies to Dylan as I would have liked to have left a tip ( which he more then deserved) but I hadn't remembered to go to the atm first.

We booked this thinking it would be a little hokie but we were so wrong! Dylan was an excellent guide and included all the stops mentioned in the tour description but what made it such a fun and interesting tour was Dylan himself! He was informative, funny and well versed about this city, it’s history and Midievel life. He is passionate about Midievel tournaments and shares his vast knowledge with enthusiasm. This is a don’t miss tour, well worth your time!

Dylan is clearly passionate about Medieval times and we appreciated that. He tells a lot of stories, with varying degrees of success. Some of the folktales and one personal story were very long and seemed like filler. The visit to the guard tower was very interesting. This tour has potential but needs more material with more substance.

Dylan was so much fun. This is worth way more than the price. Please tip him BIG - he deserves it. He is very knowledgeable and has a dry, hilarious sense of humor. It's just the right length of time and the walk is easy. Highly recommend!

We had a blast with our knight for the day! The kids thought it was so cool to walk around with a knight AND get to hold some of his armor and swords!! (Blunted for safety :). I would highly recommend for anyone looking for some history with a laugh and some fun.
