Visitors come from across Ireland and around the world to enjoy Kilkenny city, the historic capital of County Kilkenny, which is known as The Marble County. Brimming with ancient character, our city features beautifully-restored sites as far as the eye can see. Here at The Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel, we’re right in the middle of all of them, with the city itself being small and compact enough to explore most of them on foot.
Kilkenny city is built around the most famous landmark of all – the incredible Kilkenny Castle. Painstakingly restored to its former glory, this must-see site offers daily tours of the stunning interior and surrounding gardens. A mere 2-minutes from our front door, it is simply a must-see if you are holidaying in Kilkenny.
We are also privileged to be neighbour to a number of award-winning museums, Michelin-starred restaurants and lots of famous Irish entertainment. So, you’re never left without something to do when you stay in the luxurious 4-star Kilkenny Hibernian Hotel.
