Tour guides & information


Leave your busy life behind and escape to Kilkenny for a holiday with a difference. There's no better place for a wander than Kilkenny City, with its medieval cobbled streets and old-world charm.

For great walks, look no further than the Nore Valley Walk, with plenty of cosy cafes and pubs along the way to take shelter in.

Brush up on your cooking skills with classes at Ryeland House Cookery School, just outside the city.

Whatever you're looking for, Kilkenny is a wonderful destination for a great break away.
