Sharon was an amazing...
, Aug 2022
Sharon was an amazing tour guide. She’s very knowledgeable, funny and gave us great advise on restaurants to eat in Kilkenny. She also recommended a bar that’s call, hole in the wall. The bar tender not only serve drinks, but he’s a cardiologist by day. What an awesome experience and the place brought us many laughters. Must partake in the tour if anyone is in Kilkenny.
Great fun

Scary but informative

This was an amazing tour. Sharon gave us a really great history lesson about the town and shared with us all of the dark stories from each place she took us. If you zoom in on the top right window you’ll see the image of a ghost . After I saw that I was totally freaked out. I highly recommend this is a great tour.

Sharon was really nice and knew a lot about the city‘s history. The fact that she works at the local museum added to the experience of not just listening to some ghost stories, but much rather to the historically accurate dark history of the city.

She is an absolutely amazing guide with a flair for storytelling. We loved this tour with all the dark stories and even had a great time at the pub she recommended to go afterwards. We definitely recommend having this experience as part of your trip. [@Sharon, the guide, Thank you! :D]

Had the most fabulous evening with Sharon who is a wealth of knowledge and passion on the history of the city. My tween hugged me afterwards to thank me for booking an 'amazing time'🙂. Sharon is captivating and a true raconteur. The parting story left us with chills that are still being chatted about this morning 😄. Thank you Sharon.
