Events in Kilkenny

Kilkenny is very proud of its calendar of annual events and festivals.

The Marble City has become renowned country wide for its diverse range of festivals most of which take place on an annual basis. Kilkenny’s intimate size and atmospheric setting make it an ideal location for the many festivals and events it has become so famous for. With music spilling onto the streets and venues within walking distance of each other, the whole city celebrates. For festivals and events, Kilkenny has it all.

As well as world-renowned festivals such as Kilkenny Arts Festival and The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival, there are many smaller events happening throughout the year in both city and county. From horse-racing to conker festivals, it’s a great way to experience some local colour and very unusual traditions.
