Savour Kilkenny Festival

Savour Kilkenny Logo 2022

One of Ireland’s favourite food festivals, Savour Kilkenny marks the end of autumn and is held in the stunning setting of Kilkenny’s Medieval city, in the heart of Ireland’s Ancient East. Known for its diversity and quality of food producers, distilleries, breweries, restaurants and cafés, Kilkenny is home to some of Ireland’s and Europe’s best food.


Taking place over the October bank holiday weekend, the event celebrates the produce, food and culture of Kilkenny and the surrounding rich pasturelands. We are excited to reconnect with our producers, visitors and partners to showcase the very best of Kilkenny and Irish products, chefs and culinary ideas.


With the changing times we know there will be so much more to introduce and explore, between changing diets, eco consciousness and emerging local ideas; Savour Kilkenny 2022 will bring visitors on a journey of discovery and taste that will truly awaken the senses!


Expect talks from experts, demos from top chefs, unique dining experiences and all the food stalls you can imagine packaged into a festive atmosphere in the beautiful surrounds of Kilkenny city. A visit to Savour is the perfect foodie weekend away or day trip with the family. This is a weekend you won’t want to miss so get planning and book your trip to Kilkenny for the October Bank Holiday weekend!

GAA in County Kilkenny

Kilkenny V Limerick Gaa Hurling All Ireland Senior Championship Final

Gaelic games form part of the flavour of Kilkenny, from UPMC Nowlan Park in Kilkenny city to each of the 41 clubs, to be found in every parish in the county, from Clooneen in the north to Glenmore in the south.  The GAA represents our national games and there is nowhere quite like Kilkenny to experience it. Kilkenny is known as the home of the hurling thanks to the county's continued success in the sport over the years.

Kilkenny GAA promotes all our gaelic games:

The Kilkenny Senior Hurling team has, since the turn of the Millennium, been the most successful hurling team ever. This success has been founded upon our club games which are run throughout the spring, summer and autumn culminating in our local championship finals in UPMC Nowlan Park. In recent years, the Kilkenny Senior Camogie team has also been one of the most successful teams in the country, with their success again based on the thriving camogie club competitions in Kilkenny.

While football is not as strong in Kilkenny as in some other counties, our footballers participate in national competitions at the appropriate level. In recent years, our underage club footballers have competed at national level while Kilkenny Ladies Football continues to develop.

Handball flourishes in Kilkenny with many national and international champions representing Kilkenny. Handball alleys can be found throughout the the county. Click here for information on handball fixtures. Wherever you are in Kilkenny, you will find the true flavour of Kilkenny at our Gaelic Games.
