Hire the Knight!!!
, Jul 2022
Dylan was a fantastic tour guide!!!! He arrived promptly and we set off on a fantastic tour through Kilkenny, with the perfect balance of history, humor and banter throughout. Dylan is clearly proud of being a Kilkenny local and has deep knowledge of the region and its fascinating history. My son (8 years old) loved walking around with a knight, and especially loved our stop at a medieval tower, when Dylan gave my son the opportunity to try out his sword and get a closer look at his armor. Would absolutely recommend Dylan and the Knight for Hire tour for families and history lovers of all ages!

The Knight, Dylan, was on his game, giving us detailed insights into the city of Kilkenny. And, he's a real 2022 Knight.
