In Kilkenny walking a Medieval Mile not only enthrals those interested in culture and history but also soaks up the best of the atmosphere the Marble City has to offer. Explore the city’s magnificent Castle with the best views available from the River Court Hotel Kilkenny.
Located just 90 minutes from Dublin and Cork, Kilkenny City is a favourite choice for those looking for fun and culture in a compact space. The city is packed full of things to do whether it be a meander along the Medieval Mile and its newest museum, a climb to the top of St Canice’s Round Tower (the views are worth it, honestly), an afternoon filled with boutique shopping along quirky slipways and side streets, or simply a great night out with friends with so many venues and bars to choose from.
Within 20 minutes of the city you can also enjoy a visit to Bennetsbridge to Mosse Pottery and Café, go wild at Castlecomer Discovery Park or take a riverside picnic at Inistioge, a film set for many landmark Irish movies over the years.
