The tour usually last two hours. Locations include, Kinnitty Castle, Kinnitty Pyramid and the glorious Slieve Bllom Mountains.
We then set out of for Kinnitty Pyramid where the group will be given an insight how a replica of the great pyramid of Giza was built in the late 18th century by former Kinnitty Castle owner Wesley Bernard. Our clients will then get the opportunity to get a photograph of the Pyramid.
Leaving behind the Pyramid, We cast our attention to the home of the famous Hollywood director Rex Ingram. He directed the famous movie picture Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse
Ingram was an Irish film director, producer, writer and actor. Director Erich von Stroheim once called him "the world's greatest director. He spent much of his adolescence living in the Old Rectory, Kinnitty, Birr, County Offaly where his father was the Church of Ireland rector.
Leaving the village behind, we bike up into the Slieve Blooms and explore the hidden valleys and at the best vantage points take the opportunity to view the panorama vista of of Kinnitty village. We then enjoy a downhill section back to the Castle.
