Kilkenny Self-Guided City Walk

Kilkenny was the medieval capital of Ireland, and its origins date back to the 6th century when a church was built in honour of a monk called St Canice. The Kilkenny Self-Guided City Walk will guide you to this site.

The city is known for the Medieval Mile, the ancient sport of Hurling, and the heavy influence of religion, and also its breweries. The grand Kilkenny Castle was built in 1195 by Norman occupiers.

The town has deep religious roots and many well-preserved churches and monasteries. These include imposing St. Canice’s Cathedral and the Black Abbey Dominican Priory. It is also a crafts hub, with shops along its winding lanes selling pottery, paintings and jewellery.

Walk Distance 2.5km / 1.5 miles on a mainly flat route.

Dublin is the capital city of Ireland and also its largest city. The city is compact enough to be comfortably explored on foot, and the Dublin Self-Guided City Walk will take you to the key sites in this historic city.

Much of this walk is focused south of the River Liffey where there are delightful streets to wander, Georgian architecture to be admired and museums to be explored.

The city’s cultural heritage is highly regarded to the extent Dublin has earned the title of UNESCO City of Literature.
