Kilkenny is a richly historic place with a warm welcome and the promise of an unrivalled experience that resonates long after you leave.

Stop by Kilkenny’s famous Medieval Mile. As Ireland’s best preserved medieval city, the mile captures 800 years of history and hosts renowned and hidden gems, from the magnificent Castle to the enchanting Rothe Gardens to St. Canice’s round tower which at 30m is one of only three climbable towers in Ireland. This is a city shrouded in tales of superstition and subterfuge.

An absolute must is a visit to the award winning Medieval Mile Museum, formerly the 13th century St Mary’s Church, where history is brought to life through multimedia interactive displays to intrigue all ages. Unearth 800 years of history under one roof and hear the stories of powerful patrons and inspired creators.

Visit The Shee Alms House, a Tudor building dating from 1582, today it is the Kilkenny Tourist Office. The Black Abbey is one of the oldest churches in Kilkenny serving the community for the last 760 years. The Famine Memorial is new visitor experience to discover located within the grounds of MacDonagh Junction Shopping Centre, check it out before hitting the shops. There is just so much to experience in Kilkenny.
