Every year Shenanigans Walks welcomes students from around Ireland and the world to Ireland’s Medieval Mile in Kilkenny. An educational, engaging, and fun tour led by expert and entertaining guides, brings the past to life with stories, origins of Irish colloquial sayings and history, all interspersed with magic effects.

Weaving through the historic medieval streets, guests discover amazing city landmarks like Kilkenny Castle, Rothe House and St Canice’s Cathedral and much more, as tours trace the footsteps of The Normans, The Greatest Knight, Merchants, and an Infamous Witch.

Learn:

• Why Kilkenny people are called “The Cats”
• How to test if someone is a witch (it might just be YOU)
• Who was the greatest knight who ever lived?

Understanding that every group’s needs will vary, Shenanigans team works with clients to design and tailor tours for the best experience. Let us help with suggestions and recommendations of all the nearby attractions and activities and we will adapt tour times and length to create a memorable and educational visit to Kilkenny or allow us to help you build a bespoke visit.

Children

Children under 12 go FREE as part of one family.

We like children, well behaved ones at least.  Children of all ages are welcome to join our tours though to be honest it is not really suitable for those under 6.  We do ask that if children get disruptive on a tour that a parent/guardian step away from the group with the child until settled down.  Our route takes us up a flights of steps and as such push chairs or strollers might be a hindrance. We do have an alternative route so be sure to let us know before we start or when booking.

Phones

Please ensure your phone is turned on silent or preferably airplane mode while on the tour.  We see our tour as a walking performance and as such phones are a distraction and hinder the enjoyment of the tour for others. We welcome photos and along our tour you will have many amazing opportunities to capture memories. Be sure to share them with us, we love seeing images of our guests enjoying our experience and city. If on social media please use the hashtag: #ShenanigansWalks, #Funwalkingtour

Wheelchair or Mobility Issues

Our route takes us along the city streets and corridors and is wheelchair accessible. We aim to cater for all and if you have any questions or concerns do get in touch and let us know how we can ensure you have a great experience and how we can support you when you visit with us.

Smoking & Vaping

Although our tour is outdoors, we request that smokers and vapers step far enough away from our group so no one in the group is affected by smoking or vaping.

Drinking

We like a drink or two, but please don't be tipsy or drunk while on the tour.

Bathroom Breaks

We do not stop for bathroom breaks during our tour, surely you can hold it for an hour and a bit.  But seriously, in Ireland you are never more than a stones throw from a pub or restaurant so we sort you out

Tipping

Gratuities are always appreciated, but never expected.  But if you are so inclined please fold the tip neatly!

Let us know how we did!

We thrive on word of mouth. Please share your tour experience in your favourite social media channel, or even better, gives us a rave review on TripAdvisor, Facebook, and Google.  We hope it was an enjoyable experience and to see you again soon!

Tour Enquiry

We were a group of 25 and only had a short time in Kilkenny so we took the express tour. We were not disappointed it was so much fun and I even found out that I was a witch lol. We had dinner booked and Nevin had us at our destination bang on time
