Central Kilkenny/Ireland

Introducing Central Kilkenny

The area south – and notably southeast – of Kilkenny city is a patchwork of country roads and picturesque villages overlooking the rich, green Barrow and Nore Valleys. This is fine walking country and home to some of the county's most notable craftspeople, whose workshops can be visited.

Much of the area is easily visited on a day trip from the city, but you need your own wheels, as public transport is limited.
