Shenanigans Walking Tour
Welcome to Shenanigans Walks, the number one walking tour in Kilkenny City.
A former capital of Ireland the medieval city of Kilkenny is located 130km south of Dublin, situated in the area of Ireland known as “Ireland's Ancient East”.
Not your typical historical walking tour, Shenanigans Walks is a unique blend of history, stories, interesting fun facts and turns of phrase such as “Bolt from the Blue”.
Learn why Kilkenny people are known as ”The Cats”, witness magic effects as we read minds and test a guest to see if they are a witch and of course there will be plenty of Shenanigans to create a fun, engaging and entertaining adventure along “Ireland’s Medieval Mile”.
Weaving our way through the narrow city streets our guests discover the hidden history and stories of the Normans, Merchants and trace the footsteps of famous characters like William Marshal ‘The Greatest Knight’ who ever lived, and Kilkenny’s infamous witch, Alice Kyteler.
Along our tour we visit Kilkenny Castle (voted one of the top castles in the world), Saint Canice’s Cathedral and 9th century Round tower, Rothe House and Gardens, The Black Abbey, Shee Alms house and the home and birthplace of Alice Kilkenny’s witch.
Something for all ages and interests. Described by guests as magical, funny, fascinating, delightful, informative with an exciting modern twist on traditional tours. Filled with passion, energy and good old Irish Craic, Shenanigans Walks is a fantastic experience.
Not a Guided but a MIS-GUIDED Tour … all combined to bring the city’s historic past, medieval streets, famous castles and landmarks to life.
