Butler Gallery

Gallery in Kilkenny City

The Butler Gallery in the basement of Kilkenny Castle is one of the country’s most important art galleries outside Dublin. Small exhibitions featuring the work of contemporary artists are held throughout the year. Also in the basement, the castle kitchen houses a popular summertime cafe. You can head directly to either the Butler Gallery or the cafe without paying the castle's tour admission price. The gallery is scheduled to move to new premises in Barrack Lane in mid-2018.
