County Kilkenny is set in the South-East region of Ireland and the province of Leinster. It takes its name from the city of Kilkenny (meaning “church of Cainnech) which is located in the centre of the province. The county is bisected by the River Nore, on the banks of which the city of Kilkenny has been built. Kilkenny County has a huge range of beautiful locations to visit with scenic villages scattered throughout a varied countryside which includes picturesque valleys and rolling hills. As with the rest of Ireland the traveller is rewarded for exploring with hidden delights around every corner.

Kilkenny City is a medieval town that is becoming increasingly popular with travellers but has not as yet become overly touristy. Standing on the site of an old monastery there is much medieval architecture to be seen around the town and the overall town plan has remained largely untouched for hundreds of years. Just ten minutes’ walk from the town centre is Kilkenny Castle, a Norman castle which is a popular destination for tourists and locals alike. The castle takes about one hour to look round not including the gardens and castle park which is open to the public for free all year round and includes more than 50 acres of grounds including an ornamental lake. While visiting Kilkenny City you might also want to visit St. Canice’s Cathedral. Built in the 13th Century St Canice’s boasts a 102-foot round tower that gives incredible views of the surrounding countryside. For those less interested in history Kilkenny City has plenty of other delights to offer including some lovely restaurants and stylish bars. It is well known for its wide range of old-fashioned shops with craftsmen creating woodwork, pottery and jewellery in the city.

Outside of Kilkenny City there are a number of other excellent places to visit in Kilkenny, a couple of highlights for many visitors being Jerpoint Abbey and the village of Inistioge. Jerpoint Abbey is a ruined 12th Century abbey near Thomastown (just 11 miles from Kilkenny City). The abbey is well-worth a visit and the views you get of the surrounding countryside are astounding. When available it is recommended that you take the guided tour to get the most from your visit.

The village of Inistioge is a small but beautiful village on the River Nore approximately 15 miles southeast of Kilkenny city. Surrounded by beautiful countryside with many woodland paths and hikes available in the area, the must-see attraction is the 18th Century 10-span bridge across the Nore. The village itself is picturesque and looks like it has come straight from a postcard, because of its charms it has even been used as the set for more than one film. This is just one village in a whole county though, as with the rest of Ireland the best parts are those you explore and discover yourself, County Kilkenny’s beautiful countryside is just waiting for you to find it.
