“An Hour Well Spent”
I decided to do the guided tour based on reviews I read. And I’m so glad I did. My tour guide was Anna and not only was she extremely knowledgeable about Kilkenny’s history, but you could tell she was genuinely interested and passionate about it, which made the tour even better. We spent an hour walking around various sites in the city and I left feeling like I had such a greater understanding and appreciation for this magnificent place.
800 years of history under one roof
We tell the stories of Kilkenny’s powerful patrons and inspired creators through the buildings and artefacts they left behind.
With a visit to the Medieval Mile Museum pupils will gain an insight into life and death in Medieval Kilkenny, centuries of craftsmanship and artistry and the detective work done by archaeologists and historians.
