Who doesn’t love a good story!  

You don’t get better stories or storytellers than the people of Kilkenny. Kilkenny is a county stepped in history from the strong presence of early Christian Monks to the imprints of the many visitors to Ireland, both welcome and unwelcome.

Kilkenny, in particular has a strong connection with its Medieval past and is considered Irelands’ Medieval capital due to the exceptional amount of structures and ancient ruins existing and still in use through the city and county today.
