Our Favourite Kilkenny Hotels

Kilkenny is a truely gorgeous city with so much to see and do. Made famous in the Middle Ages and with activities such as paintballing or kayaking, there's just so much to do. Or you could just visit the Kilkenny Castle. You have loads to do and you will be wrecked by the time you have a chance to rest up. So it's important that you have a great hotel to stay in or even a B&B or guesthouse that suits you and your group down to the ground, truely Ireland's real capital, and take in tours of the Smithwicks Factory and (most) of the medieval churches in Ireland. Enjoy the medieval streets, high street shops all from Kilkenny's accommodation.
