There are some great cycling trails around Kilkenny which can be found from the Trail Kilkenny website. We tested out the East Kilkenny cycle trail which is a 64km cycle route, however leaving from the city (Kenmur house) it is an 80km round trip (it should be 90km but if you avoid one of the major hills outside Graiguenamanagh and take the shortcut to Inistioge it’s only 80km!!). It’s a beautiful route taking in the rolling countryside of Kilkenny. Having a cooked breakfast before you leave from Kenmur House sets you up for the few hours of pedalling! It was a glorious day when we did the trip and we stopped in Graiguenamanagh for some ice-cream and watch the barges go by. You can also take the cycle at a leisurely pace and stop in any of the towns/villages for coffee and lunch! We highly recommend the Trail Kilkenny website which gives you the opportunity to explore more of what Kilkenny county has to offer. So bring your bikes with you and contact us for availability!
