Nestled in the heart of Kilkenny City, you will find all the city has to offer at your doorstep. We are situated 400m from the city's top attraction Kilkenny Castle and 500m from the world famous Smithwick's Brewery. Kilkenny is the Ireland of many visitors' imaginations. Built from dark-grey limestone flecked with fossil seashells, Kilkenny (from the Gaelic 'Cill Chainnigh', meaning the Church of St Canice) is also known as 'the marble city'. Its picturesque 'Medieval Mile' of narrow lanes and historic buildings strung between castle and cathedral along the bank of the River Nore is one of the southeast's biggest tourist draws. It's worth braving the crowds to soak up the atmosphere of one of Ireland's creative crucibles - Kilkenny is a centre for arts and crafts, and home to a host of fine restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops.
