Tourist attractions & things to do in Kilkenny City

Below is a list of tourist attractions or “things to do” in Kilkenny City. Its a simple list in alphabetical other that I put together because one of the most commonly asked questions I get on the boat is “what is there to do in Kilkenny”. Most websites list a “Top 10 things to do” and all are pretty much the same and full of adverts or pop-up etc. So below, I’ve just listed out everything that I’m aware of in the hope that it covers most. What you decide to do is up to yourself after that. But I would recommend checking out any attractions you’re interested in on either Trip Advisor or Google Reviews first. Hope you enjoy Kilkenny. All the best. Cliff
