Our luxury hotel is perfectly placed for a weekend or mid-week break exploring the heritage city of Kilkenny, enjoying bars, pubs, restaurants, and shopping or just taking some time to relax in one of our spacious, comfortable bedrooms. We’ve just released some last-minute summer hotel offers, perfect for couples, groups, families and any other type of traveller. Here are some fantastic things to do in Kilkenny on your late summer break.
Explore in the Sun
Kilkenny City is one of the country’s most walkable cities, so exploring in the open air will be easy. Enjoy some of the green space in Kilkenny by taking a blanket and a picnic with you and soaking up the last of the summer sun. One of the largest and most beautiful green spaces in Kilkenny is the grounds of Kilkenny Castle. You can enjoy exploring the extensive grounds admiring the formal terraced rose garden and woodlands, visiting the ducks at the lake, or just spend the day basking in the sunshine.
If you want to enjoy the great outdoors while learning a little more about Kilkenny and its heritage, you can take a walking tour of the Medieval Mile. The discovery trail runs through the oldest part of the city allowing you the same sights and sounds as our ancestors enjoyed. The trail begins at the 13th-century St Canice’s Cathedral and ends at Kilkenny Castle with plenty to see and do in between.
Kilkenny History and Heritage
Everywhere you step in Kilkenny, you’re exploring a part of our history and heritage. From the beautiful architecture and decor of St Candice’s Cathedral, the heart of worship in Kilkenny for over 800 years, to a more modern social part of our history in Smithwick’s Brewery. The experience brings you through 300 years of rich history and teaches you more about the production of one of our most famous products. It ends with a tasting that will leave you thirsty for more – luckily it’s in the heart of the city which has an abundance of pubs! You can explore the beauty of Kilkenny Castle and its fantastic collection of historic artefacts or pop into the famous Kytler’s Inn to learn about Dame Alice de Kyteler who established the pub in 1324 and was later accused of witchcraft. A tour guide can show you the best of Kilkenny while telling you stories that the guidebooks won’t.
