Kilkenny City

On the banks of the river Nore, Kilkenny city is a vibrant city of just over 28,000 people. If you’re just stopping by for a night or staying for a week, Kilkenny has something for everyone.
Many of our guests use a Kilkenny bed and breakfast as their base for their first few nights after arriving in Ireland, or their last few nights before leaving. It’s about 1.5 hours from Dublin airport, so its ideal to quickly get out of the Capital city and into the heart of the country-side! It’s easy to tour the whole south east of Ireland from here, so this could be a great idea for you when planning your trip!

Kilkenny is steeped in medieval history, with the influence of arts and crafts evident on every street corner. If you are here for the Cat Laughs Comedy Festival, Arts week, a walk in the 800 year old Norman castle park, a meal in one of the award winning restaurants or a drink in one of the many great pubs, it’s easy to find something to occupy yourself.

You won’t need a car or a bus when getting around kilkenny city, the main city center is a great area to wander around, with cobbled streets and a network of ‘slips’ or stairs linking the various street levels.

As for the weather, Kilkenny has a mild climate and it’s not unusual to be the warmest part of Ireland each summer! It’s just 15 minutes drive from us here at our bed and breakfast into Kilkenny. It’s a very scenic journey, going either through the villages of Bennettsbridge or Gowran.
