A great way to see the city and hear about the history of the local people and buildings. Jason kept the party amused and made sure my 9 year old twins were fully involved. Excellent bikes were provided and it was a very pleasurable couple of hours. I would recommend this as an easy way to see the sights.

We had the pleasure to bike around the beautiful city of Kilkenny with Jason as our guide. He was warm, welcoming, accommodating and shared a wealth of knowledge regarding the local attractions. He knew the right angles to get some great shots and even acted as our professional photographer. Thank you Jason for allowing us to fall in love with... More

Went on a fantastic tour with guide Jason of Kilkenny cycling tours. By far the best way to explore the gems that Kilkenny has to offer. Highly recommended for all fitness levels and abilities. Jason, as a local resident, is very familiar with the history of Kilkenny and makes the tour very enjoyable. A very enjoyable spin - thanks Jason!

If you only do one thing when you're in Kilkenny, make sure it's this tour. It's the best way to see the city. You see most of Kilkenny's highlights and it's a good way to get rid of those Smithwick's calories. Jason is a fantastic guide. He had great stories, funny jokes, and even remembered all of our names.

We booked to go on a cycle tour of Kilkenny on a sunny March afternoon. I couldn't recommend Kilkenny Cycling Tours, and in particular Jason, enough. On a quiet day in March it was just me, my wife and our 18 month old son on the tour and Jason was brilliant, even though there were no other people booked in... More

Jason is up there with the best and most entertaining tour guides in the country. Youll find out so much about the town and learn about so many interesting facts - something you only get when you cycle through the little streets and avenues of a town with a professional guide. Jason's passion and pride for Kilkenny and its history... More
