Hotels in Kilkenny: be amazed by the Gaelic culture
For a contemporary convention centre in Kilkenny, go to the Lyrath Estate Hotel. Each year, the hotel's convention centre hosts dozens of exhibitions and events. Annual events in Kilkenny include the Cleere's Trad Music Session, which features traditional Irish music and a line-up of poets, comedians and other performers.
Many Kilkenny hotels serve good hearty food, and you only need to venture into the local area to find a little variety. Lovers of Mediterranean dishes can find tapas, and those who want to indulge in a pint of Guinness with pub food do not have to go far to satisfy their needs.
Late-night opening takes place on Thursdays in Kilkenny, so pack a pair of comfortable shoes and prepare to shop until 9 p.m. Many Kilkenny hotels are within easy reach of shops selling handcrafted goods. While the local area has many modern stores, local designers reflecting the Gaelic culture are also commonplace.
Major Points of Interest
Take yourself back a few hundred years by visiting Kilkenny Castle and its gardens. This Norman castle overlooks the River Nore, making it the perfect attraction for a summer day. Beer lovers can take the St Francis Abbey Brewery tour. This is Ireland's oldest brewery, dating back to 1221. Alternatively, try whiskey tasting at the Irish Whiskey Event in Stoneyford.
Golf lovers can make the most of Kilkenny sports by visiting the 18-hole championship parkland course. If you enjoy rugby, try to catch a Rugby Union game from Kilkenny's local team. You can even participate in the Gaelic Games in Kilkenny where sports such as Gaelic football and rounders are very popular.
