Events in Kilkenny

Kilkenny is a mecca for festivals & events. There is something for everyone and we are proud to be associated with all of them. 

Our beautiful Medieval City has become renowned country wide for its diverse range of festivals most of which take place on an annual basis and are going in pouparlity every year! Kilkenny’s intimate size and atmospheric setting make it an ideal location for the many festivals and events in which it has become so famous for. With music spilling onto the streets and venues all 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, The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival and of course the award winning Savour Kilkenny. There are many smaller events happening throughout the year in both city and county, it is a great way to experience some local colour and very unusual traditions.
