Nice Walk

It's a nice walk, just don't get distracted on the way. There's a path, be sure you don't wander away from it.

Perhaps the most surprising city I found on a two-week organized tour of the Homeland (with a name like Murphy, go figure☺) was Kilkenny. The group stayed at the pleasing Pembroke Hotel, where I was treated with extreme hospitality and wonderful meals at the two on-site restaurants. I found Kilkenny Castle (Caisleán Chill Chainnigh, in the Irish language) to be... More

most places visited were on level ground. The town plan was very easy to understand and all areas visited were in easy reach of our hotel

We had a great time learning about hurling. PJ was knowledgeable and interesting. He took a group of Yankees who knew nothing about the game and turned us onto fans!

This was so much fun and a highlight of my first trip to Ireland. Being from the states I knew nothing about hurling but after a day learning the sport and trying it out for myself I had a new respect for the sport. The way Owen talks about the sport makes it more than a game to the people... More

PJ and Owen started by providing my group of 25 with a riveting history of hurling in Ireland. We then walked over to the pitch and learned the ins and outs of the game. By the time we needed to wrap up, we didn't want to leave. I'm looking forward to the opportunity to hurl again thanks to PJ and... More

My wife and I traveled to Ireland from the US for our honeymoon, and while we were in Kilkenny, we found on TripAdvisor that The Kilkenny Way was highly recommended. It did not disappoint in the least! We learned about the game, its history, and even got to practice basic skills on the Nolan Park field. You need not be... More

We came to Kilkenny specifically to do the Kilkenny Way experience, as I am a hurler from Virginia in the USA. After arriving at Lanigan's, we were disappointed to hear that there would not be a tour that day, as we were the only people to be there for it. Fortunately, PJ Lanigan, the owner, heard about this from my... More
