  • 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.

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.
