County Kilkenny is a place to gather where culture and adventure, city and countryside, and friends and family meet. There is so much to explore in the medieval city and beyond.

Kilkenny City is home to one of the most recognisable landmarks in Ireland: the 12th-century Kilkenny Castle. Go back in time and explore Ireland’s Medieval Mile, a discovery trail running through Kilkenny city. The county is full of vibrant heritage and history at every turn, so there are many stories for you to uncover in Kilkenny. Take a tour of the attractions or book a place in a local walking or cycling tour to hear Kilkenny's history in a unique way!

Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s most cosmopolitan cities, a gem in the heart of Ireland's Ancient East. The county is home to world-renowned festivals, award-winning eateries and top-class hospitality in hotels, B&Bs and self-catering accommodation. Shop 'til you drop at independent boutiques and local shopping centres and browse creations from Kilkenny’s prominent local arts, craft and design scene. Relax and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the beautiful parks and woodlands and active with walking and cycling routes, or take part in more thrilling activities that will get your adrenaline pumping. You'll find even more activities across the county at Outdoor Kilkenny.

No need to be torn between a city break with a difference and a countryside escape, Kilkenny has it all.
