Kilkenny city has stood for more than a thousand years and has seen many changes in power over the centuries. In the 1640's it was actually Ireland’s unofficial capital complete with its own parliament until Oliver Cromwell led a siege upon the city in 1650.
Today, Kilkenny is a beautifully preserved medieval city that also pushes Ireland towards a better future with its focus on pioneering the world of design. So, whether you’re looking for a slice of history, a great atmosphere, or simply to see something you can’t find anywhere else, then Kilkenny is the place for you!
A Segway is a two-wheeled, self-balancing, battery-powered electric vehicle. The Segway’s speed, range and maneuverability ensures riders have an amazing and unforgettable experience. The Segway allows a rider to easily move throughout the city’s paths, roads, bike lanes, and back streets. It transforms a standard tour into an exhilarating experience by allowing the rider to get up close and personal with sights and points of interest.
