Kilkenny is a medieval city of 24,000 people acclaimed internationally as a centre for craft and design. Within Ireland, Kilkenny is probably most famous for its dominance in hurling - the national sport. Each year Kilkenny hosts a number of international festivals and the city is a very popular tourist destination.

This medieval city is characterised by many beautifully restored buildings and winding slipways - it is small and compact enough to explore on foot, yet full of fascinating historical buildings and contemporary shops, design galleries and restaurants.

The ancient city of Kilkenny was named after a 6th century monk St Canice. His memory lives on in the beautifully restored St Canice's Cathedral, built overlooking the city in the thirteenth century. Kilkenny Castle, one of the most magnificent castle's in Ireland was built by the Normans who arrived in the city during the 12th century.
