Tourist attractions and things to do in Inistioge

Map showing the walking route of the Woodstock Loop

A list of all places to visit and things to do in Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny.

Inistioge is fantastic little village on the River Nore about 25km southeast of Kilkenny city. It has a small population of about 300 people but can still be a busy little spot, especially in summer. Tourist love visiting Inistioge as it so picturesque. One of my favourite things to do in Inistioge is to just sit by the river Nore and watch the water rise and fall throughout the day with the tide. Inistioge is a perfect spot to spend a few hours rambling about or just sitting and watching the world pass by. A lovely village. Anyhow, if you find yourself in Inistioge, and looking for local activities, adventures or something to do, here is a little list I put together that hopefully might help.

Tourist attractions in Inistioge

I’ve visited Inistioge several times over the past few years and its one of those beautiful little towns that never disappoints. I hope you have a great time exploring the area. Be sure to check out the various walking routes and Trail Heads in the village. Apart from the Woodstock Looped Walk mentioned above, you also have the South Leinster Way and the Nore Valley Walk if you are feeling a little more energetic. Check out for information on these if it’s something you think you might fancy. Also, when you are in Inistioge and if you are on Instagram, have a look for the HashTag #inistioge as you will see some cracking picture of the area and it will give you other ideas for exploration. Have fun and I hope you enjoy your time.
All the best.
