Self-Catering Kilkenny, Ireland
Kilkenny is a city like no other - cosmopolitan with award-winning restaurants and cafés and an energetic nightlife, it is set against the backdrop of a truly special medieval heritage with its beautiful 12th Century Kilkenny castle at the centre. It’s home to Ireland’s ‘medieval mile’ which includes St. Canice and St. Mary’s Cathedrals and offers delights for the culturally curious and those with a love of craft and design.
The city lives and breathes the sport of hurling and boasts the most decorated team in Ireland. Discover the age-old tradition of craft ale with the Smithwick’s Experience and there’s delicious dining from Michelin-starred options to cutting-edge casual. For a different side of Kilkenny, there’s Nicholas Mosse pottery at beautiful Bennettsbridge, Jerpoint Glass Studio, check out Goatsbridge Trout Farm, visit Thomastown or take to the waters at Graiguenamanagh.
