Kilkenny’s medieval city is situated in the sunny South East of Ireland and is the hero county of Ireland’s Ancient East. An intimate city, with medieval streets and a 900 year old castle full of history and heritage. There’s lots to explore on the Medieval Mile, adventure to be had in our villages and towns and plenty to experience at our festivals, arts and cultural events. Top it all off with great food and atmosphere in our many restaurants, cafés and pubs.
During our St. Patrick’s Festival this coming March 2022, the city and county come alive with pageantry, craic agus ceol. Enjoy free events, workshops, and performances, and the main event – The St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
The St. Patrick’s Festival Kilkenny takes place alongside Kilkenny Tradfest, a traditional music festival with gigs from some of the best Irish Musicians. There is no better place to be and no better way to experience a real St. Patrick’s Day in Kilkenny!
