Jerpoint Park Thomastown
#1 of 29 Sights & Landmarks in Kilkenny
Site includes several very interesting things to see including the abbey, lime kiln, old small church, graveyard, bridge, walled gardens, etc. Good stories to read along the way to help with the history.
The story of how Joe, the current property owner and resident tour guide, came to discover one of the most important cultural sites in Ireland is amazing and inspirational.
Kilkenny Castle
#2 of 29 Sights & Landmarks in Kilkenny
We went on the informative self tour(the guards were also very informative and approachable with questions) and enjoyed seeing the beautiful rooms, lovely painting and fantastic views of the garden.
History buffs and armchair historians alike will find the artefacts and sights very interesting.

Because Victorian architects and their clients loved neo-Gothic, the country is full of chruches, cathedrals and other landmarks in this style dating from the 19th and eaarly 20th Centuries.

This was the funnest site we visited in Kilkenny - A Must See! Note: There is an extra fee to enter the Round Tower and the steps up to the Round Tower are steep, but both are worth it.
Black Abbey
#5 of 29 Sights & Landmarks in Kilkenny
Kilkenny has many wonderful historic sites and I recommend seeing them all.
This is a small but very nice church with a nice outside and terrific interior with stained glass and impressive architecture to view.

Rothe House and Garden
#6 of 29 Sights & Landmarks in Kilkenny
Unlike Kilkenny Castle which is very popular tourist site, Rothe House is much less "touristy", thereby making it a more relaxed and authentic experience with staff having time to deal with your questions.
Another worthwhile visit, must see.Very reasonable priced for access to view house and gardens at your own pace.
St Marys Cathedral
#7 of 29 Sights & Landmarks in Kilkenny
The apse and altar areas, however, are bright with color, making a nice contrast and a stunning view on entering.
A gorgeous site tot enter and relax and meditate.
