'tis the Season


Welly Race

Tis the season for festive cheer. Mince pies, Christmas pudding, turkey and ham, groaning tables and full glasses. Once you’ve indulged in the very best seasonal food that our producers and cooks have prepared for our Christmas dinners and parties, Kilkenny has a wealth of fun ways to help to burn it off and raise funds for local charities at the same time.

Enjoy the Christmas Spirit


We’d like to invite you to take some time out from shopping enjoy a jam packed programme of musical and cultural events to really heighten the Christmas spirit
