Discover Ireland's Ancient East

June 18, 2018

Discover what Ireland's Ancient East has to offer right from the heart of the medieval city of Kilkenny.

Discover 5,000 years of history in Ireland's Ancient East. Steeped in history and full of secrets these lush green landscapes have so many stories to tell. And the secrets are everywhere. Every cairn has a story, every castle turret has a tale, every hill may hide heroic sagas. Ask the people you meet and you will hear them tell of the legends, triumph and sometimes tragedy that whirl around its round towers, opulent mansions and prehistoric monuments. Just ask the locals!

Here are our Top 5 Attractions to see when staying with us at the Kilkenny River Court Hotel.

Kilkenny Castle

A guided tour of the castle is a must see when staying the in heart of the medieval city. We are ideally located just 2 minutes walk from the castle and our terrace along the Nore River is overlooked by this iconic landmark. From the bloodlines that could not produce a male heir to the marble waking table in the entrance hall this well preserved part of history is full of secrets and intrigue.

Rothe House and Gardens

Located in Kilkenny City, the Rothe House Garden is a recreation of a historic garden from the 17th Century. It is the only urban garden of this period which is open to the public. The kitchen garden is still planted and produces some of the foods that were found in any 17th garden. These include deer tongue lettuce, scarlet runner beans, gortahork cabbage, mammoth leeks, lovage, borage and lady's bedstraw. Meanwhile, the upper garden contains a wide range of fruit trees, apple, medlar, quince and damson.

 

Castlecomer Discovery & Adventure Park

Castlecomer Discovery Park and Visitor Centre consists of a wonderful 80 acre discovery park in the Castlecomer Demesne, which was once part of the estate farmyard, gardens, stable yard and leisure grounds of the Wandesforde family. Castlecomer is not only for families and children there are plenty of activities for everyone. Activities include tree top walkin, climbing wall, zipline, canoeing, archery, orienteering and walking trails.

Dunbrody Famine Ship

Located at New Ross, County Wexford, the Dunbrody Famine Ship Experience is an essential stop on any tour of the south east region of Ireland. Follow the footsteps of the those who left during the Great Famine with an interactive tour that takes you through the fateful journey made by so many Irish people. Featuring a guided tour, costumed performers and themed exhibitions, the Dunbrody Famine Ship Experience provides an insight into this significant period in history—one that shaped the Irish culture forever.

Borris House Carlow

Situated in the beautiful Barrow Valley in County Carlow, Borris House is one of the more picturesque country houses in Ireland. A stroll through the lush woodlands and gardens and a tour of Borris House will leave visitors feeling like they’ve stepped back in time to their very own Downton Abbey. Constructed in the Tudor style, Borris House was built in 1731 by Morgan Kavanagh. It is the hereditary home of the MacMorrough Kavanagh family, former Celtic kings of Leinster, and the famous 12th century Kavanagh Charter Horn remains on display in the house today.

I can honestly say the joint performance was just breath-taking! We are so grateful to everyone who volunteered their time to make this occasion so great for our club’

The Lions Club collected a significant amount of funds at the welcome reception for the Party Nights and in addition to this the Kilkenny River Court Hotel were delighted to present a donation cheque to the Club in recognition and support of all their fundraising initiatives.

All those that attended the Christmas Party Nights were very generous with their contributions to the Lions Club which supports so many great causes in Kilkenny. The Kilkenny River Court Hotel welcomed groups from Kilkenny and outside of Kilkenny.
