The Parade Tower Wing is the dedicated events area of Kilkenny Castle, incorporating the entire west wing and two of its medieval towers. This multi-purpose venue is designed to accommodate a wide range of events from conferences, receptions, gala dinners as well as cultural and artistic events. More recently, it has become an intimate venue for both civil and humanist marriage ceremonies.
For eight centuries, Kilkenny Castle has hosted many significant historic gatherings. Indeed, the Parade Tower housed the Great Council Chamber where Parliament sat in the 17th century.
In addition to The Parade Tower Wing, the magnificent Picture Gallery of Kilkenny Castle is available for hire for evening cultural events, including classical music recitals, poetry readings and pre-dinner drinks receptions in conjunction with dinner at The Parade Tower.
