The Perfect Pitstop


Kilkenny Cycling Race

We are thrilled to welcome the Rás na mBan cycling race back to Kilkenny in 2024 for the 8th time.  The race is a fantastic occasion for both athletes and spectators of the sport and generates a great buzz around Kilkenny City.  

Rás na mBan is Ireland’s only international stage cycling race for women.  High-performance cycling teams from Ireland and Europe compete in the 6-stage race that totals over 400km and includes a variety of terrains.  

The Hoban Hotel is a popular place to stay for cyclists and their teams during the race as it has been the race HQ where many stages of the race begin.
