What a wonderful tour. We had so much fun and really enjoyed Nevin’s stories and magic. A great way to start a trip to Kilkenny to see the sites and learn about the history. It was also a great way to discover the layout of the city so we could move with ease for the rest of our trip. Highly recommend Shenanigans”.
