The Maudlin Tower was built in the 1200s and is known to have been the first leper’s hospital in Kilkenny and its neighbouring counties. Often seen in close relation to Mary Magdalin, the county was the first one of its kind to start healthcare for lepers.

Today the monument stands 4 stories tall on the Maudlin Street and is one of those places that add a little bit of rustic charm to the otherwise buzzing street.

Be sure to visit the place during your walks around the city.
