St. Canice Cathedral, Kilkenny Reviews

  • Went to a concert tonight in St Canice's Cathedral. It was amazing. The setting, acoustics, lighting, sound, just superb. Wonderful venue.

  • Wonderful Cathedral! The climb up the ancient round tower is challenging but worth every step! The view from the top is beautiful!

  • Older than Kilkenny Castle! Gorgeous interior and exterior, with a tower to climb and observe the area. Worth the climb, though narrow so be ready for close quarters.

  • Great place to visit. Well worth climbing the tower but it is quite steep up stepladders so best to avoid if you are afraid of heights or are quite rotund.

  • Fascinating 9th century building. Don't miss climbing the round tower. You can see all of Kilkenny from there. Climbing the tower wouldn't work for: you young children, obese people, very tall people, disabled, claustrophobic.
