Medieval Mile Museum


Mary's Lane,
(Off High St.)

Unearth 800 years of history under one roof. Stories of Kilkenny’s powerful patrons and inspired creators come to life through the monuments and artefacts they left behind. Open all year round, guided tours and audio tours available.

Ireland’s finest example of a medieval church, the site has been lovingly restored in recent years. Archaeological excavations unearthed artefacts hidden for centuries that are now on display in world-class exhibitions. Visitors to the museum will marvel at a treasure trove of objects encompassing the work and lives of Ireland and its people across centuries.

Whether by means of an entertaining guided tour, or an all-day tour (with interactive audio guides available in 6 languages and child-friendly options), the Medieval Mile Museum offers visitors an unforgettable experience.
