A look at Kilkenny

With Ireland's Medieval Capital at its heart, County Kilkenny offers some of the South East's finest countryside, a pretty, rich farmland dotted with medieval ruins, solid stone walls, charming villages and a host of historic monuments including Jerpoint Abbey, one of Ireland's finest monastic settlements.

There are forest parks, natural wonders and some of Ireland's finest studio workshops clustered in the scenic valley of the River Nore. A fine sporting tradition with hurling at its heart makes Kilkenny an interesting location for sporting enthusiasts…Mount Juliet, one of the finest golf courses in Ireland which has hosted several international golf competitions. Good food, lively restaurants, popular pubs and nightclubs are also important in a county that offers everything for an enjoyable and memorable holiday.
