Kilkenny Shopping

Stroll the cobbled winding city streets of Kilkenny or browse the large range of stores in the shopping centres, all located within a stone's throw of Kilkenny River Court Hotel.

A break away to Kilkenny City and a little shopping trip around the city is one of the most perfect breaks away. The Kilkenny River Court Hotel is perfectly situated right in the heart of Kilkenny City close to all the shops. Afterwards why not enjoy a moment's reprieve after a hectic day's shopping with a glass of wine on the outdoor terrace area during the summer months at the Kilkenny River Court Hotel. In the winter relax by the roaring fire with a hot chocolate or winter spiced wine.
