Walking in Kilkenny



[maxbutton id=”1″]

Kilkenny Trails Festival is a collaboration between Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership and Trail Kilkenny with the aim of getting more people out walking in Kilkenny.

The festival is about lots more than just walking and the organisers want enthusiasts of all levels, families, groups and individuals to pack a picnic, enjoy walks along the riverbank and barbecues, feast on local Lavistown saugages, Highbank Apple Juice and learn all about foraging in the wild.

The varied programme will suit walkers of all levels and interests. Many of the Festival‘s events are free and those that aren’t are keenly priced to encourage participation. Family tickets are available for lots of events some priced at just €10. Most events need to be pre-booked, numbers for some events are limited and so early booking is essential and now open.

Walking Groups

No matter how old you are, how fit you are, or how busy you are, walking works.  Make a promise to get started, and to stay committed. The goal is to walk actively just five times a week for 30 minutes each time.  You can start with just 10 minutes of walking and build from there. Kilkenny has various walking groups available.

For more information on these groups visit http://www.getirelandwalking.ie/
