Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

This is new to Kilkenny.
The Experience my group will never forget.
Sport of Kilkenny is Hurling and this is the only tour of its kind in the world. We started in a pub but were not left there for long.we were taken out on whats called a hurling field.named Nowlan Park.here we had great fun learning how to use a Hurl. Kilkenny we were told are Champions.
Various ways of ball control we tryed
but by golly we had great fun.now we went back to langians pub and museum where we ate Stew.try it with a pint if black stuff. Dont miss this tour. Jim was outstanding. Our tour guide for the event .
Even the ladies had a ball.

“Fun and more fun”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Truly one of the best parts of 10 day trip to Ireland. Learned how to hurl, ate lamb stew and met nice people. I encourage all to do this

Reviewed July 29, 2013

Great city (small compared to London!) you can walk around it easily. Lots to do.Hurling is the life blood of Kats of all ages get involved whenever you can, you,ll never watch boring soccer again.

Castle, Rothe House, St Canices, Kytlers the list goes on for history buffs.Plenty of good pubs and restaurants, most pubs do music of one sort or another.Try The Hole in the Wall High Street behind Enable Ireland shop for a coffee/drink/music theater experience. Try the Kilkenny craft trail for gifts there are workshops all around the city and county.

Out of town try Castlecomer Discovery Park for the mining history,country walks fishing and the arial assault course if you,re energetic enough.

Downside are the hen nights at the weekend not a pretty sight!

Loved Mingo. Loved to hear the inside view on the quickest game in the world. The steak lunch was really good.

“Good times in Kilkenny and not just drinking in the pubs!”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

All Americans who think Kilkenny is just known for their beers, need to pay 20 euro for this experience of a lifetime! Learn all about Hurling, an old Irish sport like no other! Take hockey, lacrosse, mixed with soccer and the violence of rugby and you have hurling! For a 2 hour tour PLUS lunch, you learn the basics! Bring water and wear work-out clothing and sneakers! You will work up a sweat! We loved it! It was so much fun and the guide was excellent! I believe Kilkenny offers this to make tourist Kilkenny Cats fans! It worked! Go Cats!
