events banner future

Kilkenny is home to some of the best festivals in the world, from mega music events and epic live performances to extraordinary stand up shows, with a schedule that’s ever growing and always changing but for now we must STOP and stay safe.

The safety of visitors to Kilkenny is of the utmost importance to us. Kilkenny Tourism are following the advice from government officials for the reopening of Tourism sectors in the county. Below you can see some of the many festivals that will return to Kilkenny bigger and better than ever before in a new world of social distancing.

For now you can dream from home of better days to come!

A Book lovers paradise

A hidden gem

During the Town of Books Festival, book lovers overtake the medieval riverside town of Graiguenamanagh, Co. Kilkenny. It’s all about the books! Over 30 independent Booksellers take the opportunity to promote their collections from 23rd to 25th August 2019.

The Graiguenamanagh ‘Town of Books’ Festival, now in its 15th year, was ‘born’ in 2003. From its origins as a small weekend event promoted on an experimental basis for one year, it has now grown into a fully fledged festival. The weekend features art, music, food and crafts, and a whole host of fringe activities. Of course, at its core the Graiguenamanagh ‘Town of Books’ retains its original vision, to transform Graiguenamanagh, for one weekend only, into a book lovers’ paradise where booksellers are matched up with a number of empty spaces in the town. It is the best place in Ireland to pick up a bargain in new, second hand, antiquarian, children’s and specialist books.

Graiguenamanagh is the outdoor activity headquarters for the Barrow Valley, and is constantly alive with hillwalkers, cyclists, canoeists, boating enthusiasts and fishermen.
