Kilkenny Restaurant Week – 22nd January – 2nd Feb

Matt the Millers

Kilkenny is a foodie city, with a reputation for good food served in classy surroundings. This year local restaurants are giving you a chance to find out just why so many people flock to Kilkenny to get their foodie fix!

By Kilkenny standards the end of January is a relatively quiet time when the locals come out to play, and we want you to “live like a tourist” for the Kilkenny Restaurant Week. Visit Kilkenny’s eclectic range of restaurants and explore our award winning venues – choose from our selection of fine dining and Michelin Stars to the best of pub food – at prices which won’t break the piggy bank.

Find out how Kilkenny became Ireland’s Foodie Destination for 2018, and find out why people who love good food travel in numbers to our Medieval city. Participating restaurants will have their Kilkenny Restaurant Week offer clearly displayed, some with signature dishes, some with tempting tasting plates – in other words, something for everyone’s palate and purse.

Why not arrange a special night out in Kilkenny over the week starting on the 22nd January, and make a date with your favourite restaurant? If you follow us on Facebook you can get all the news, and get the low down on our fabulous food. Ask your favourite restaurant what they are doing for Restaurant Week, and maybe try a new place to find out why Kilkenny is Ireland’s No 1 foodie paradise.
