The Province of Leinster region

Kilkenny is the Creative Heart 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 offers the South East's finest countryside, a pretty, rich farmland 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.

Some local attractions : Kilkenny Castle, St Francis Abbey Bewery, Kilkenny Design Center, Black Abbey, St. Canices Cathedral, Moss Pottary, Rothe House, Butler's Gallery, Dunmore Caves, Castlecomer Dicovery Park and for the shoppers McDonagh Shopping Center and Market Cross Shopping Center and High Street .


Kilkenny neighbouring towns are: Tipperary, Waterford, Wexford, Laois, & Carlow and are all in driving range:

Tipperary is particularly rich in archaeological sites of interest including the Rock of Cashel in Cashel Heritage Town and Cahir Castle in picturesque Cahir Heritage Town.

Waterford City Famous the world over for its hand-crafted crystal – hence the Crystal County, County Waterford offers the choice between a cosmopolitan modern city, a cluster of charming seaside resorts and a mountainous hinterland.

County Wexford offers cosy coastal villages, sunny seashores with numerous and well presented beaches.Visitors can even turn back the clock and explore the county's unique history, culture and heritage attractions and one of the oldest operational lighthouses in the world, the Hook Lighthouse. The Dunbrody Heritage Ship in New Ross which is an accurate, full size, ocean-going recreation of the actual timber-built ship which played a leading part in 19th century emigration to the USA.

Carlow a jewel of a county with a wealth of scenery and history Carlow Town marks the meeting of the Barrow and Burrin rivers, a point which was believed to be once made up of four lakes, hence the gaelic name
