All About Knight For Hire

Hi, I’m Dylan, The Knight For Hire. I am a qualified tour guide doing walking tours of Kilkenny dressed in armour. You’ll often find me around the Parade and Canal square. The main goal of my tours is to have fun and maybe learn some history on the way. While I failed history in school, I came to love it later in life after training to fight in armour and taking part in competitions as part of medieval armoured combat Ireland, so I have a unique perspective on history to share.

Knight For Hire Tours

Discover hidden Kilkenny

The tour I'll bring you on will highlight some lesser known locations in Kilkenny city such as Talbot tower and give an insight on what medieval life would have been like. I do the tour in medieval armour as knights of old would have worn and go in to detail about what its like wearing and fighting in it. Suitable for all ages this fairly relaxed walking tour takes about an hour. Prices are as follows: 
Adult €15
Child €10

Reviews

Kilkenny is such a beautiful medieval city and what way is better to experience it than a guided tour through the most history soaked parts by a guide who comes in an authentic functional suit of armour! He had such an in dept knowledge of the city and its unique history I must recommend this tour! I was thoroughly entertained from start to finish and Dylan recommended a wonderful restaurant for us to eat in afterwards, he truly knows his city!
