Romantic Kilkenny


Overlooked by an ancient castle and nestled between atmospheric cobblestone streets and medieval ruins lies the romantic city of Kilkenny. 

Asking the question at the right time and choosing the right place to do it at is almost as important as the wedding itself. If you’re planning a proposal and want to be sure that it’s everything she (or he) dreamed of, Kilkenny is the perfect place to do so . Very few Irish cities rival Kilkenny’s intimate charm, meandering medieval walkways, vibrant craft centres, personable boutiques, Michelin star gourmet restaurants where you can feast on delectable dishes over a candlelit dinner and enjoy the lazy cafés. This mix of history, style and culture make it easy to understand Kilkenny’s appeal. A little further afield from the Marble City itself, the leafy banks of the River Nore, ancient mills and bridges  all combine to make the Kilkenny experience one to really remember. 

Not only is Kilkenny one of the most romantic cities in Ireland it has the best jewellers. Kilkenny city captures the essence of romance and boasts many prestigious jewellers who deliver handcrafted pieces with extraordinary care for each and every couple.  Purchasing an engagement ring is a momentous occasion in a couple’s life.  The jewellers in Kilkenny are genuinely passionate about jewellery and are ready to make your special occasion a memory that will last a lifetime.  Offering a bespoke service you will find the perfect engagement ring and the best value for money.
