What people say
We really enjoyed your walking tour in Killarney with you. We did a great walking tour in Killarney with Conor. Conor was a great guide, who is very knowledgeable of Killarney and of Ireland’s history overall. We particular enjoyed his story telling and even explaining the unique Irish sports such as Gaelic football and Hurling. Overall, we highly recommend a walking tour of Killarney with Conor.Thanks and good luck
The Explore Killarney WalkingTour by Conor Doolan gives a wonderful insight into the history and culture of Killarney Town. It is really interesting to hear the stories behind many of the town centre monuments. I highly recommend this and tour times are ideal for busy families who may be out touring beyond Killarney during the day
We first met Conor at the Killarney Tourist Office, from their we walked for over an hour through many of Killarney’s prime locations along with the Killarney National Park. It was great to hear stories of Killarney that we wouldn’t have had prior to the walk. Thanks to Explore Killarney and I would recommend that the tour is a must for any person visiting Killarney.
Great Walking Tour. While traveling in Killarney for a few days I got a chance to take the walking tour from Conor. It was a through tour filled with rich history and little props along the way. He is someone who has taken time to study and master his craft. Great way to get a debrief on the history of Ireland. Highly recommend for any stay in Killarney.
A Great Way to Spend an Hour in Killarney. My wife and I waited near the tourism center in Killarney for the 11am tour. Conor met us and it turned out we were the only people taking the walking tour at that time. Conor essentially gave us a private tour of Killarney, taking us to different points of interest around the city and telling us the history of Irish culture. It was a great walk and Conor was very informative. He answered any questions we had and talked about many aspects of Irish history and life in Ireland. We learned things from how the city dealt with the hard times of the famine to the meaning of the symbols on the flags of the various cities. Thanks to Conor for making our time in Killarney that much more special! I would recommend this to any couple or family spending time in Killarney
While in Killarney we arranged to do a town center tour with Conor. He was exceptional. His knowledge of Killarney, County Kerry, Irish History, and a special introduction to the unique sports played here, grounded us for the time we spent in the area. What a great way to get an orientation to a visit to a remarkable place. The tour lasted much longer than the one hour promised. He is high energy and engaging and does many other tours as well. You will not be disappointed
Just wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed my walking tour with Explore Killarney. The history is fascinating ! Wishing you continued success with this excellent venture
