Valentine's Weekend in Kilkenny

Valentine’s Weekend in Kilkenny

February is the month of love. Valentine’s Day is celebrated on 14th February across the world and couples spoil each other with gifts of flowers, chocolates and heartfelt cards. The celebration originated from a Roman Festival celebrating the start of Springtime and has been a date in our calendars since the year 469. This year, make your Valentines one to remember with a trip to a beautiful medieval city and a stay in our romantic hotel in Kilkenny. Kilkenny has all of the elements required for a truly romantic weekend; great food, luxury hotels and old city charm. Here are some of our suggestions to make your stay as romantic as possible for both of you.

Visit the Sights

If your idea of romance is strolling hand in hand with the one you love, checking out the sights and sounds of a new town, Kilkenny is perfect for you. We have beautiful lawns, picturesque churches, cobbled streets, and our very own castle surrounded by stunning gardens. Visit our museums, especially the Medieval Mile Museum which gives you a great insight into life here in olden days. We also have many shops selling authentic handmade goods, perfect to bring home as gifts or as a memento of your wonderful weekend exploring Ireland’s Ancient East. We can’t guarantee good weather, but we can guarantee that whatever pub you pop your head into as a shelter from the rain will have a great atmosphere and often live music while you enjoy a pint.

Romantic Dining in Kilkenny

Romance and food go hand in hand and there is no better dining experience in Ireland’s Foodie Destination 2018. Statham’s restaurant, part of Pembroke Kilkenny, combines a warm welcome and laid-back style with delicious local Kilkenny produce. Statham’s has an all-day menu with breakfast, brunch, lunch and evening dinner served in stylish and modern surrounds. Not only do we offer an impressive menu, highlighting our local produce and the skills and talent of our kitchen team, we also specialise in pairing our food with our large selection of wines from around the world.
