“brilliant hen party activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

16 of us had a great time on the Kilkenny Way Experience - Jim and everybody else on the Kilkenny Way team were really friendly and welcoming - all the girls - most of whom were not that sporty and usually not keen on running about much - loved it , brilliant to have a mess about on a pitch, learn about a unique amazing sport and then tuck in to tasty big plates of food in a pub.

It's the best thing to do in Kilkenny

“Brilliant hen activity”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 25, 2013

Thanks to Jim and PJ for a brilliant hen activity. Jim gave us an impassioned introduction to the sport and the traditions behind it. The hurling was great fun and we all felt like we learned something. The food afterwards was a lovely end to the activity. The value was amazing. I highly recommend this for tourists and to hen parties who don't mind getting a little bit mucky.

“Fantastic Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

Jim Croke's introduction to Gaelic hurling is a marvelous way to try the ancient sport. He loves the game and knows everyone in Kilkenny.

The experience includes on-field basic instruction/drills with a hurley and an opportunity to make shots, then a visit to "Legends" bar, a shrine dedicated to the sport. At conclusion, food and a pint are provided back at the pub. We had a blast.

Don't miss this singular experience and do take in a hurling match while in Ireland. Both are highly recommended.

“The only way is the Kilkenny way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

This was excellent. Jim is absolutely amazing and is so passionate about hurling. He taught us New Yorkers how to hurl and it was a lot of fun. I would highly recommend this for anyone who visits Kilkenny. You haven't experienced Kilkenny until you've experienced hurling.

“Lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Lovely way to spend a day - strolling along the river and taking in all the sights of the City. Met several people on route and it was nice to see how friendly people were!
