Things To Do In Kilkenny
Kilkenny is known as the Medieval Capital of Ireland, where heritage and history, environmental harmony, crafts and architecture combine to create an all-pervading spirit of excellence.
With Ireland's Medieval Capital at its heart, County Kilkenny is dotted with medieval ruins, solid stone walls, charming villages and a host of historic monuments including Jerpoint Abbey, one of Ireland's finest monastic settlements. Regal, majestic and ancient, overlooking the brooding River Nore, Kilkenny Castle, now fully restored has stood sentinel at this important river crossing for perhaps 900 years.
There are forest parks, natural wonders and some of Ireland's finest studio workshops clustered in the scenic valley of the River Nore. Good food, lively restaurants, popular pubs and nightclubs are also important in a County that offers quite simply everything for an enjoyable and memorable holiday.
