Irish Gem Experience

A county where ancient walls surround medieval sites, where outdoor adventures, contemporary shops and vibrant restaurants are around every city corner. Welcome to the Medieval City of Kilkenny!
Kilkenny is home to one of the most recognisable landmarks in Ireland, the 12th century Kilkenny Castle.
