Wonderful guide, fabulous place
On a very brief visit to Kilkenny, myself and my friend had some time to kill. We hadn’t planned to visit the castle, but we are extremely glad we did. The castle and grounds are magnificent and definitely worth a visit on their own merits, but it was our guide, Peadar, who really brought the place to life. His passion for history and heritage was positively infectious and his breadth of knowledge extremely impressive.
As a lover of history myself, I found the tour fascinating from start to finish and would thoroughly recommend it to anyone visiting the city.
Butler Family Castle
Kilkenny Castle overlooks town of Kilkenny and the River Nore. The self-guided tour winds through the public and some private areas of the castle. The history of the building and the family are fascinating and the renovations have transformed the building. The Picture Gallery is an incredible space.
Worth the visit when in Kilkenny. If the weather cooperates, take a stroll through the beautiful gardens.
We visited firstly the castle park (large, green) and the rose garden with excellent photo points of the medieval castle (1195), the river Nore and the medieval town of Kilkenny.
Then we paid the entrance fee (8 euros, OK) and visited the interior in a hurry since we were there on a day tour (Collins Day Tours) and it was a busy Sunday with a food fair right outside the castle with crowds of people.
The castle is very well preserved! Inside I liked the Great Hall with the tapestries, the children’s room, the Moorish stairs, the dining room with the table ready for dinner.
