Great way to see the town and nature if you have a limited time to walk around. There is so much history and culture here and our guide, Liam was very informative. One of the best experiences we had overall.

He remember all fifteen of our names and was just an outrageously fun man! He made the adventure even better by making us all feel welcome in his hometown of Kilkenny... More

Jason was a fantastic tour guide - friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable (and good craic!). The tour was great fun, and managed to give us a brilliant overview of Kilkenny and its history. The cycle itself was so relaxed and enjoyable, with Jason taking us down various lanes and secondary to roads to avoid traffic (though Kilkenny is quite cycle-friendly in... More

Jason provides the best city tour in Kilkenny. He is very knowledgeable and provides detailed (insider) information that I did not get from the other tours. I also rented a bike from him 2 additional days to explore the countryside on my own. A beautiful new bike path just opened from Waterford to Dungarvan that I would recommend for a... More
