We live in the wonderful picturesque town of Kilkenny, one of the top tourist destinations in Ireland. It is a culturally rich and vibrant town that has many events and festivals throughout the year: Arts, Comedy, Music, Film, Theatre ... there is always something on! See the links below for more details but here's a flavour: March Kilkenny Tradfest - https://kilkennytradfest.com/ Early May Kilkenny Roots Festival - https://kilkennyroots.com/ Late May Early June - Cat Laughs Comedy Festival http://thecatlaughs.com/ August - Kilkenny Arts Festival - https://www.kilkennyarts.ie October - Savour Kilkenny - Festival of Food - https://www.savourkilkenny.com/ November - Kilkenomics Festival - https://kilkenomics.com/ Late November - Subtitle Film Festival - http://www.subtitlefest.com/ The town and local area are a foodies delight with many different choices including 2 Michelin starred restaurants. We have a wonderful, large public park in the grounds of the castle. It's a great place to spend the day having a family picnic, playing in the playground, feeding the ducks or flying a kite. There are lots of activities in the area including golf, swimming, fishing, kayaking, cycling, horse riding and hiking. If you like kayaking, the local rivers the Nore and the Barrow present lots of great opportunities for picturesque touring. If you prefer sea kayaking, the south coast is no more than an hour away. For hikers, there are lots of lovely mountains all within a short drive. Our favourites are the Comeraghs but there are many great walks in the Blackstairs and the the Galtees. We will leave guidebooks & maps. For golfers there are many excellent local courses including the famous Mount Juliet (20mins - http://www.mountjuliet.ie/golf.html). We have 2 sets of right handed adult clubs and 2 junior half sets (one right and one left handed). Kilkenny is also centrally located and therefore an ideal base from which to visit the rest of the country. Lovely beaches are less than an hour away on the south coast (Dunmore East is our favourite) and the large Irish cities are all within striking distance: Dublin 1.5hrs by train or car, Cork 1.75hrs by car and Galway 2.5hr by car. If you like surfing we have 2 surfboards (7'6" & 8'6"). Tramore is the nearest (<1hr) though the best waves are on the west coast in Clare (e.g. Lahinch <3hrs), Sligo (e.g. Strandhill ~3hrs), Kerry (e.g. Inch ~3hrs) and Donegal (e.g. Tullan Strand ~4hrs). Our house is in a quiet and private cul-de-sac of 12 houses approximately 1km from the centre of town. The town is well served by a diverse range of shops and supermarkets including many small artisan shops selling local produce. In summary, we live in the best town in Ireland (we're biased, but it's true!). We know you'll have a great time and agree with us by the time you leave!
