Six New Bike Hire Centres in the County

Kilkenny is set to lure cycle enthusiasts and families this summer with a new Countywide network of cycle hire hubs. The cycle hubs will open up Kilkenny’s most historic and scenic areas for visitors to explore at their own pace on two wheels.


Six different hire centres are now open for bike and cycle hire. Located at Inistioge, ThomastownWindgapCallan, Castlecomer and Graiguenamanagh – each one offers a choice of standard and electric bikes for full or half-day hire and a selection of stunning routes to appeal to cyclists of all abilities and interests.


These six hubs will supply all necessary equipment, including helmets and high-vis vests, and recommend loop routes which begin and end at their locations and take in Kilkenny’s most beautiful countryside and notable attractions.


Commenting on the new centres, Ciaran Conroy, Chairperson of Kilkenny Tourism said; “The lockdown brought a new found enthusiasm for cycling in Ireland, exploring our cities and countryside on two wheels is a great way to discover new towns and villages and meet local people. The new cycling centres are a great amenity to have, particularly for tourists over the coming season, the geographical spread in their locations means people can discover different towns and cycle tracks on their staycations this summer.”


 Full details of all loop routes and hub facilities can be found at trailkilkenny.ie/kilkennybikehire

This is a pilot project funded under LEADER Initiative, from the Rural Development Programme 2014-2020 and initiated by Kilkenny LEADER Partnership, for Summer 2021. For more information, please contact Coordinator Mary Deevy, marydeevy@hotmail.com
