At Hurling Tours Ireland, we provide a unique experience for visitors to Co. Kilkenny. We are involved in giving visitors an introduction to our ancient national sport, Hurling.

You would be mad to visit Ireland and not try our unique and ferocious sport. You will learn about the history of Hurling and how it has evolved into the fastest field game in the world, that we see today. This is all done in a Hurling team's dressing room in Kilkenny City, giving you that up-close, intense experience. Once you are up-to-date on the basics of the game, we take you on to the 'field of dreams' to try a few skills for yourself. This will be an unforgettable experience that will live long in the memory of each guest. We give everyone an opportunity to take a shot at the goalposts, and score like the Kilkenny Cats so often do.

We have had visitors from many different nationalities and backgrounds fall in love with Hurling and the culture it creates in Ireland. Visitors from Canada, USA and Australia even promising to join a GAA Club when they return home.

Locations: Kilkenny City; Kavanagh's Bar, Freshford, Co. Kilkenny
