County Kilkenny is a place to gather where culture and adventure, city and countryside, and friends and family meet. There is so much to explore in the medieval city and beyond.

Kilkenny City is home to one of the most recognisable landmarks in Ireland: the 12th-century Kilkenny Castle. Go back in time and explore Ireland’s Medieval Mile, a discovery trail running through Kilkenny city on which the Watergate Theatre can be found.

The county is full of vibrant heritage and history at every turn. Take a tour of the attractions or book a place in a local walking or cycling tour to hear Kilkenny's history in a unique way!
