PJ and Owen started by providing my group of 25 with a riveting history of hurling in Ireland. We then walked over to the pitch and learned the ins and outs of the game. By the time we needed to wrap up, we didn't want to leave. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to hurl again thanks to PJ and... More

My wife and I traveled to Ireland from the US for our honeymoon, and while we were in Kilkenny, we found on TripAdvisor that The Kilkenny Way was highly recommended. It did not disappoint in the least! We learned about the game, its history, and even got to practice basic skills on the Nolan Park field. You need not be... More

We came to Kilkenny specifically to do the Kilkenny Way experience, as I am a hurler from Virginia in the USA. After arriving at Lanigan's, we were disappointed to hear that there would not be a tour that day, as we were the only people to be there for it. Fortunately, PJ Lanigan, the owner, heard about this from my... More

What a great introduction to hurling. Owen took the time to do the tour even though there were only the two of us. He even arranged for Hurls to be custom-made for our two grandsons. He was very personable and funny. The overview he gives around not only the rules and skills of the game, but also the history and... More

I had never even heard of hurling until a few months prior to my trip to Ireland. So I was pleasantly surprised to see that the Kilkenny Way was highly rated on Trip Advisor when I was looking for activities in Ireland. There's a reason it's rated so highly--it's so much fun! I loved learning about Hurling and the instructor... More

If you have never heard of or tried Hurling, this is the place to go. They are very passionate about the sport and work hard to teach you the fun of the sport as well as how to play. It was a nice outing for the family and a very different experience that I am sure we will remember.

Coming from the US our family of 4 had seen a couple of hurling matches. The tour was great. Owen, our guide, was very personable. He discussed the history and systematically taught us a variety of techniques used in the sport. The tour of the stadium's facilities was great. The smile on the face of my 9-year old lassie throughout... More

When we were planning our trip to Ireland, we came across the website for the Kilkenny Way and decided that we had to check it out. I'd watched a few hurling matches in the past and really love the game, so I was excited to get a chance to learn more about it and possibly even take a few swings... More

I've watched hurling a handful of times but didn't know much about the sport. Owen changed all that, and made it a lot of fun for me, my wife, and daughter. Kilkenny are the kings of hurling and we got to walk into the park where they made that claim. Very cool just for that. Then we got to learn... More
