The country's smallest city in terms of population, Kilkenny boasts a rich cultural heritage and diverse tourist attractions that include well-preserved medieval architecture, exciting nightlife, a vibrant culinary scene, and abundant shopping opportunities.
Get some historical perspective at Irish National Heritage Park and Rothe House and Garden. Kilkenny Castle and Hook Lighthouse are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kilkenny: Curracloe Beach (in Curracloe) and Ferns Castle (in Ferns). There's still lots to do: stop by Kittys cabin and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at St. Canice's Cathedral & Round Tower.
