This 1-hour Hurling Tour involves giving visitors a presentation informing them about the sport. We delve into the history of Hurling and how it has evolved into the fastest field game in the world, that we see today. We also delve into the unbelievable culture of Hurling in Ireland and see why it is the most popular sport in the country. This is all done in a Hurling team's dressing room in Kilkenny City, giving tourists that up-close, intense experience.

Once tourists are up-to-date on the basics of the game, we take them on to the field to try a few basic skills for themselves. I give top class coaching and encourage all guests, regardless of ability to get stuck in and give it their best shot! This is the part that has proved most popular, with guests eager to get immersed in the Irish culture. We then give guests an opportunity at the very end of the tour to take pictures of themselves in action on the field.

My name is James Kavanagh and I created Hurling Tours Ireland in 2018 because of my love of our native sport, hurling. Being from Kilkenny, (the real home of hurling) all I knew since I was 5 years old was hurling and playing the sport every day. I admit nothing compares to the thrill and excitement of my playing days, but, I get a wonderful feeling from teaching both the young and the old about Hurling.

Having worked in Kilkenny Castle for many years, I was asked several times a day by visitors to this beautiful city about hurling. Visitors would ask me what sport everyone around the city is playing. And so, the idea for Hurling Tours Ireland was created- to spread the wonderful message of hurling to all!

The tour is all done in O'Loughlin Gaels GAA Grounds, Hebron Road, Kilkenny. (R95RX63). This is one of the best hurling fields in all of Kilkenny and the facilities are top-class. The location is also ideal, it is just a 10 minute walk from Kilkenny city centre.

James's Hurling experience was a great way to spend a Saturday morning. I'd really recommend this for those who haven't experienced or tried hurling before and who want to learn a little about the history and try it out in a laid back environment. James was a great host and will definitely be recommending to any friends visiting Kilkenny!

In learning about the history of hurling and how the game is currently played, this experience helped me understand the cultural connectedness of Ireland. James was a great host. He even helped locate a couple of local hurling teams in our area that we plan to check out when the next season rolls around. This was a great way to break up the monotony of sightseeing and would also be a good experience for those with children.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to be by ourselves for this experience, so it gave us more time and opportunity to interact freely with James and Shane. We learnt a great deal about this fascinating sport that and no idea about. Our practice was fun and makes you admire the players and the game of Hurling even more. I would definitely recommend this experience. A good one to enjoy with the entire family.

This was one of the most fun experiences we did on our trip. It was fascinating to learn about the rules of hurling and how it’s so engrained into the lives of everyone there. After the quick lesson we got the opportunity to practice, doing drills that should be simple but were challenging (in a good way!) since the sport was so new. After concluding we wanted to keep playing! James was beyond knowledgeable about the sport and a great coach (very patient as we whiffed a few hits) and very responsive in coordinating everything leading up to the lesson. Would recommend dressing in athletic gear and bringing your competitive spirit! To note, the location might be outside of Kilkenny center so it’s best if you have a car so you can make it there.

Hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht. Nach einer kurzen Einführung in den Sport konnten wir selbst Hurling spielen oder es zumindest versuchen. Es war sehr interessant und lustig!

Our family hurling lesson was such a blast! We all got a good workout and came away with an appreciation of the sport and deep respect for the level of skill required! James was a helpful and supportive teacher with impressive skills himself!
