We visited Kilkenny by bike with Mark as our guide. We had an amazing morning. The weather was nice and the stories that Mark told us gave us a beautiful inside on the Irisch and Kilkennien history. He really listens to you're questions and refers back to a remark you made further on in the tour. ('you asked me earlier on about the two breweries, well....') Also nice how much ground you can cover by bike and...Mark will keep you safe :)

Our bike tour of Kilkenny was absolutely amazing. Ronan was our guide and he was very knowledgeable about the local history and culture of the fabulous city. Ronan is easy to talk to and offer to take our picture several times. We enjoyed our time with him and highly recommend this bike tour to get a sense of the city and all it has to offer.

Definitely a MUST DO when visiting Kilkenny. What better way to see the delights of this exquisite historic town than on two wheels. The tour takes you through all the major points of interest and historic sites and along the beautiful banks of the river Nore. Jason, the guide of the day and business owner went the extra mile, not only with his in-depth knowledge of Kilkenny history but with an insider's view on Kilkenny life. A marvellous way of touring the city regaled by history, tales of the past and a leisurely cycle for all ages and all levels of fitness. Highly recommended!!!

Myself and my partner had a spin on the hydrobikes in graiguenamanagh. Brilliant experience. I was nervous at first but once i new the bike could not topple over i began to feel at ease and enjoy the experience. Our guide was a young guy called Dillion, he was excellent very calm and patient and a genuine nice guy you new if you got into bother you were in safe hands. He was also very accommodating time wise. Would recommend.

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.

Jason was our guide for this tour and did an incredible job of explaining some of Ireland’s history and adding a lot of humor. We enjoyed the tour and seeing Kilkenny, it was fun for our entire family (with two kids ages 17 and 12). Doing a bike tour is a great way to see a city and it’s something we try to do when traveling overseas. I’d highly recommend this tour and would book it again if we return.

Jason was friendly and knowledgable, and made effort to engage our kids and include everyone in the tour. He has a great sense of humor, and showed us both interesting and curious features of Kilkenny's history. We had a travel snag, and Jason graciously adjusted our tour time. We highly recommend taking a bicycle tour with Jason!

Initially, when I arrived to pick up my day rental, there was no one on-site because of a miscommunication about my reservation. However, I called the number, and they sent someone right away to set me up with the bicycle and accessories, including a bike lock and helmet. They went above and beyond to make sure I enjoyed my ride and to make me feel welcome. I would have loved to do a longer bike ride through the countryside, rather than simply riding around Kilkenny, but I did not have time on this trip. Note that the physical location is a bit challenging to find if you have not been there before.
