Kilkenny Self Catering Guide
The city of Kilkenny boasts Ireland's most preserved Medieval town centre - the Castle and Cathedral which dominate the town are gems of Irish architecture.
The county has numerous ancient sites including Iron Age fortifications, inscribed stones and crosses, castles, and abbeys.
The central part of County Kilkenny is undulating limestone plain, bordered in some areas by gently sloping hills. In the north are the attractive uplands of the Castlecomer district and the Slieveardagh hills and Booley hills extend across the County Tipperary border on the west. Kilkenny is good sporting country, with excellent facilities for hunting, angling, shooting and golf.
