My name is Kieran McCarthy. Im a local historian, having researched and written two books on the subject of the Irish Volunteers in Cobh and East Cork. Its a subject Im passionate about and love relating to others. No matter how many times I do the tour with people, someone always asks a question from a perspective i hadn't encountered before, leading to an added experience for all involved. Only recently I had a young lady on the tour from Baltimore USA , whos late grandfather happened to be one of the Cobh Volunteer Officers in the story I was relating at the time. What an experience for us

In my mind, the best history tours are not those which only give you an overview of the larger history of a country. Rather, the best ones interweave the local with the national- getting a sense for how a specific place and community played a role in the making of that larger history. Kieran provided exactly that with his tour and did so with humor, essential context, and genuine passion for the topic. Cobh is an absolutely beautiful town and Kieran transforms it into a living museum to tell the story of Irish Independence and those fighting both for and against it (and those caught in the middle). A great storytelling ability bolsters the depth of historical research he presents on the tour. And as a further credit to him: wherever we went throughout the town, he was always greeted by a happy hello from those who also lived there! Deeply enjoyed it and left with a greater appreciation of the town and its history. If you go before December 2020, I would also recommend also checking out St. Peter's exhibit "Cork 1920" about the burning of Cork and the war of Independence (greatly compliments Kieran's tour).

Extremely interesting tour rooted in local history but with national importance. Kieran was fun and engaging. Our entire party enjoyed it- ages ranging from 17 to 50. Highly recommend for anyone who is interested in history and community.

Kieran is vey knowledgeable on the subject. His love for Ireland and its rich history is evident. We enjoyed Cobh, the rebel stories as well as the sights. Except for the not so good weather of Ireland in February, we had a wonderful time. Thank you Kieran for weathering the rain and winds for us.

We thought our tour with Kieran was fantastic and very interesting. We visited the area the day before and just wandered around enjoying the view. After we took the tour with Kieran we left with a completely different vision. So much history for a small place.

This was a wonderful tour explaining Cobh’s role and participation in the struggle for Irish independence. You could tell this was something the guide felt passionate about and he made the history come alive. He answered questions, got to know us, and entertained us by taking us to the places where Irish rebels carried out their fight for independence. He also seemed to know just about everybody in town. I loved someone who is passionate about his local history sharing that with us. Highly recommend!

I wanted some rebel history and I got it - stood on sites of ambushes! That’s not just it - Kieran planned the walk and weaved together the history of the town in a way that was easy to understand. Really enjoyed the tour even in the rain!
