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

My friends and I had an amazing time riding around Kilkenny. Jason could not make it to our tour, but he was super kind and helpful over email. Colm was our tour guide. He was super engaging and funny and gave my friends and me a very informative and enthusiastic tour of Kilkenny. It's a great option for people who... 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

We were shown around kilkenny by Jason on Thursday last, we had decided to take a few days away with our young kids to beat the post Christmas blues and my wife stumbled on this tour from the leaflets in the hotel we were staying, well what a piece of luck. Jason was brilliant, patient with the kids and we... More

Jason's tour of Kilkenny was fantastic. We were able to see so many things in a short time and learn so much about the history of Kilkenny. I would highly recommend the bike tours to others.

I rode on the tour as an activity as part of my contiki tour. It was such an incredible experience and our guide was fantastic. The history was presented in a way that was informative and entertaining. The ride isn't strenuous and provides you with a great in depth exploration of the beautiful town.

Was looking forward to cycling in Ireland for a while and was not disappointed with Kilkenny Cycling Tours. Fantastic trip filled with a couple obstacles along the way, but Jason is the man and helped me get where I needed to be. Highly recommend this to anyone, whether it's for a day or a few days, Jason is the guy... More
