  • Scenic, slow, calm, beautiful, connected to everything, and convenient. It was not very cloudy out and I took more photos here than anywhere else in Kilkenny.
  • Had an amazing afternoon hitting a ball with a stick. But seriously, this is a fantastic way to get an introduction to the sport, even if you're only going to watch it on TV afterwards. Our instructor, Andy, was informative, entertaining, and tailored the outing to the group. I must highly recommend it especially to any hockey players, as they all seemed to do very well, but even a less athletic lady like me managed to get the hang of some moves. I've certainly gained a huge appreciation for the sport.
