Ronan was a terrific guide and is passionate about Kilkenny. We thoroughly enjoyed our bike tour and only regret not having the time to do it when we first arrived. It gives you a terrific overview of the city and we returned next day on foot to a few spots that we cycled by on the tour.

We had an amazing time in glorious sunshine cycling alongside the river and around the city with Ronan, our fantastic tour guide. He shared his wonderful passion and enthusiasm for the place and it's history and even gave us a few bars of a song! He also did a great job in keeping the group together and giving lots of encouragement to those of us who hadn't been cycling in a while ;) We had such fun. Thanks again Ronan and Kilkenny Cycling Tours.

This is a fantastic tour which I would highly recommend to anyone visiting Kilkenny. Beautiful scenery, historical sites and places of interest were brought to life by Ronan our guide who was excellent. His knowledge, passion and enthusiasm all made this a great afternoon out. Educational and lots of fun.

One of the most fun parts of our trip! Small business next to Sullivan's brewery (great place for a pint and a bite after cycling btw), guides are super nice, fun, and funny, bikes are in great condition. Our group had already been on a walking tour and the guide took the time and care to ask what we'd already seen and modify the tour so we could see new things. Bride, wedding party, and friends were all happy! Beautiful way to see parts of Kilkenny that most tourists miss. Also if you're worried about it being too strenuous, don't, it's a very easy cycle, almost all flat.

Jason is such a friendly and fun tour guide. He is so personable and he makes time to chat and get to know each person. He'll keep you entertained with many a fun anecdote. This tour is a really relaxing and safe way to cycle around and see Kilkenny. Would highly recommend.

We did a cycling tour with Conor yesterday and it was a great way to see the city. Conor was very knowledgeable and really gave a great overview of the history of the city. I’d highly recommend the cycling tour for any age or ability.

I rented a bike for the day. The person at the shop was very helpful getting me set up, and had a fantastic suggestion for a day trip. The friendly, enthusiastic, and helpful discussion of the area, things worth seeing, the route, and things to be aware of when biking was above and beyond. I had an amazing day out exploring the area, and it was great to see beyond the confines of a city or town.

Jason was a fantastic tour guide! He was patient and careful with our 9 and 7 year old kiddos. We loved learning all the fun facts of Kilkenny and seeing the sites via bike. I highly recommend the cycling tour — especially if you only have a short time to explore Kilkenny.

Just finished the tour with Ronan, highly recommend this to everyone. You don't have to be an experienced cyclist, it's quite leisurely and Ronan has so much to tell as you make many stops in the 2 hours. So informative and thoroughly enjoyable 👍

If you are in Kilkenny, and like biking, this is a MUST DO.

Kilkenny cycling tour offers planned tours and even bike hires for the day and you can customize your ride as you wish. Jason is a great guy, loads of fun, and very helpful. He helped me plan my itinerary and added things I did not know about from internet search, that I am so glad he did. I hired an e-bike that was perfect for my height, thankfully, and I saw a lot of the wonders that Kilkenny has to offer, including arts & crafts, beautiful serene nature, castles and friendly people. The little rediscovery of myself thanks to Jason, his humor and care, marked the most memorable of all of my experiences. I am so glad I did this bike hire, you should, too, if you are in the area :)
