Hotels in Kilkenny

Spanning both banks of the beautiful River Nore, Kilkenny is a vibrant city and county town. Situated in the South East of Ireland, it is a rightly popular tourist destination filled with historic sites and buildings, a lively music scene and plenty of excellent restaurants. Whether you seek medieval gems or contemporary entertainment, Kilkenny has much to offer.

History and Architecture

Kilkenny was granted city status in 1609 and celebrated its 400th birthday in 2009. Its roots go much deeper than that however, with a 6th century religious settlement and evidence of Mesolithic and Bronze Age dwellings. Dominating the north end of the town centre you will find Ireland's second largest medieval cathedral, St Canice's, with its famous round tower. Records reveal that a wooden church was burned down here in 1087. The stunning structure you see today dates from the 13th century.

High above the river is the unmistakable profile of Kilkenny Castle, one of Ireland's most famous heritage destinations. A fascinating patchwork of different architectural styles and eras, there are still three towers surviving from the 12th century. A key attraction is the glorious Long Gallery, with its beautiful ceilings decorated with Pre-Raphaelite and Celtic motifs.

Festivals and Culture

In the summer months Kilkenny is alive with festivals. You could sample the famous Cat Laughs Comedy Festival in the June bank holiday week, or the Kilkenny Arts Festival during late August, when the city hosts a whole spectrum of theatre, dance, visual arts, literature, film and live performances. For music lovers there is always the Kilkenny Rhythm and Roots Festival on the first weekend in May, plus of course, there is traditional Irish music everywhere, all year round. Many pubs have traditional music sessions and there are plenty of top bands associated with the city. In the peaceful atmosphere of St Canice's Cathedral, excellent classical groups and choirs frequently perform.

Nightlife and entertainment

The city is alive with enjoyable, atmospheric bars, many with live music or comedy and theatre. John Cleere's is a fine example, with a mixture of all three! Music spans from traditional Irish to blues, jazz and rock. For a taste of the grand and traditional there is the stunning Tynan's Bridge House. This Georgian pub has a unique blue frontage and glorious horseshoe bar, original tilework and a wonderful atmosphere. It's a favourite with locals. Try the Watergate Theatre for music, comedy and drama.

Restaurants and cafés

From Kilkenny hotels you can wander the charming 17th century walkways and wider spaces of the town and encounter plenty of good places to eat and relax. From the fine dining of Campagne with its Michelin star-studded chef to delicious brunches at the sharp, contemporary Marble City Bar, you will be very spoilt for choice. You might try Café Sol for its fine seasonal organic produce and relaxed atmosphere. When you're on the move and exploring the sites, the Gourmet Store creates excellent takeaway treats using both local and imported ingredients.
