Nore View Folk Museum

Located just outside the town of Bennetsbridge, this picturesque location is home to a museum featuring an interesting collection of exhibits that seek to provide an insight into the domestic lives of Irish people in days gone by. The museum authentically recreates a number of period Irish rooms, and features a carpenter's workshop, a pub, petrol station, kitchen and dairy. A number of wildlife exhibits can also be seen.

Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre

Ballykeeffe Amphitheatre is located just outside Kilkenny near Kilmanagh. This open-air stage hosts events mostly during the height of the summer months when it is a delight to be outdoors, even late into the night. Besdies concerts and theatrical events, the venue also hosts family days and lectures.

St. Canice's Cathedral

A striking vision in grey, this Gothic church is the second-longest cathedral in Ireland. Originally established by Saint Canice as a monastic settlement in the 6th Century, the cathedral features a variety of exhibits of historical interest, including stained glass windows, limestone grave slabs and medieval carvings by Rory and William O'Tunney. One of its most salient features is its "Celtic Christian" round tower, one of the few remaining medieval vestiges of its kind that can be ascended to the top. It also notably enshrines prominent Ossory bishops.

Medieval Mile Museum

The Medieval Mile Museum is located in the restored and retrofitted St Mary's Church Building, with it's Graveyard complex retained alongside. While the Church is a fine example of the medieval Renaissance style, the interiors widely adapt to a modern style of display. The Museum parades a fine collection of Kilkenny's historic remains, and demonstrates the City's prime role in Medieval history. With the ornate works of the bygone era, the Museum is an epicentre of art and culture in the City.

Watergate Theatre

Although only established in 1993, the Watergate Theatre has become a focal point for much of the theatrical activity in Kilkenny city and county. The venue plays host to a variety of both visiting productions and local amateur drama societies. Homegrown professional companies, including Barnstorm and Bickerstaffe, have also performed at the Watergate to great acclaim.

Cleere's Pub and Theatre

One of Kilkenny's most respected venues, Cleere's has been playing host to intimate theater performances and traditional music sessions for as long as anyone can remember. Its Monday night trad session has assumed almost legendary status, and guest musicians and singers are always very welcome. Attracting mainly a younger crowd, Cleere's is also a great place for a pint of Guinness. So sit back with a tall one and enjoy the show.
