    Kilkenny city- characterized by beautifully restored old buildings and winding slipways - is small and compact enough to explore on foot, yet full of fascinating historical buildings and contemporary shops, design galleries and restaurants.

    The ancient city of Kilkenny - from the "Gaelic Till Cearmaigh" - was named after a 6th century monk called Saint Canice. His memory lives on in the beautifully preserved St. Canice's Cathedral built overlooking the city in the thirteenth century. The Normans arrived in the twelfth century and their legacy remains in the superb and fully restored Kilkenny Castle, and in the thriving and cosmopolitan merchant city. Kilkenny offers a unique selection of historic sites and buildings from the 7th century onward reflecting a tradition of monastic settlement and gracious living.

    Kilkenny is very accessible with trunk roads passing through the county to Dublin, the south and west of Ireland. Kilkenny city is on the direct railway line from Heuston Station in Dublin with connections to Waterford and Rosslare.
