Kilkenny city and county will be a bustling hive of outdoor activity and fun this July as the first ever Trail Kilkenny Outdoor Festival gets underway and entire families join in activities which range from rock climbing to Nordic walking, white water adventures, giant catapult and raft building and so much more.
Activity providers throughout the sprawling county are showcasing their centres, offering taster sessions and discounted offers and are joining with Trail and the Kilkenny Recreation and Sports Partnership to get the first two weeks of the primary school holidays off to a flying start. The action-packed, two week Festival is a joint venture, funded by Trail Kilkenny and Kilkenny LEADER Partnership through the Rural Development Program
The programme runs from July 2 to 15 and is designed to get everyone active, get families and friends together and spur everyone to get outdoors or just try something new with expert tutors and activity providers scattered all over the world-renowned Kilkenny Countryside, Rural Recreation Officer, Harry Everard, said. Booking details are available on www. trailkilkennyoutdoorfestival. ie
“When people think of Kilkenny, they automatically think of hurling. But the county has so much more to offer. We’ve packed our programme with everything from magical, memorable morning walks for children aged 3 to 6 right up to clay pigeon, air rifle and rock climbing adventures, a three day introduction to rowing programme and loads more.
