Built in 1146 by William Marshal, the Kilkenny Castle is one of star attractions of the city. The medieval fort has since been converted into the present day visitor’s centre. The lush green gardens that surround the Kilkenny Castle add to its old-charm.

Highlights include:

  • Tour of the castle: Includes the Castle Gateway, Medieval Room, Courtyard, Undercroft of the West Tower, Dining Room and the Terrace Corridor.
  • Taking a walk in the magnificent gardens.
  • Two lead statues which stand on pedestals near the castle- one is of Hermes after the original in the Vatican Collection and the other is of ‘Diana- the Huntress’.

A visit here is sure to take you back in history.
