My brother and I booked the tourist package with no knowledge of hurling. I couldn't be happier with the experience. Aiden was very passionate and knowledgeable about the sport and his city. We had a great time learning and sharing in what he loves. A must do when going to Kilkenny! Thank you Aiden!

We had a wonderful time with Connor getting to learn the basics of hurling, playing a bit then watching a match back at the bar. Connor was a lot of fun, and very knowledgeable. A must do in Kilkenny!

We had a fantastic afternoon learning all about the Irish sport of hurling with our awesome guide Connor. It was so much fun having a run and a hit around and finishing with a delicious meal at Lanigan's! This is a must do for anyone sporty.

I was fortunate enough to learn hurling one day in Kilkenny as apart of my winter session study abroad. This was one of the highlights of the trip for me, as the guys were great teachers and we had an amazing time playing around and learning such a classic sport.

He took me through the history of the sport, from the myths through to the modern day legends and then showed me how to play. We headed... More
