Love the design centre, visit every year, they have a very wide range of gifts & beautiful Aran knitted garments, very friendly staff & a lovely little cafe. Some goods are rather expensive.

We visited the shops at the design center as our "hotel" the Butler House was connected to the back of it. The shopping is nice and they have a decent selection of irish goods that were better than other irish towns that just had "touristy" goods. We also had our breakfast there in the morning and the food and service was good. Overall a nice stop after a visit from the Castle.

A fair selection of Irish arts & crafts but for some reason I wasn't that impressed. A nice place but not that special but if you are in Kilkenny it is a good place to visit as there are not many interesting shops in the city itself.

I was very impressed with this shop for artistic style. Very good pieces of jewellery and pieces of artistic fare for good prices and the benefit of the tax free for overseas travellers like me.
I got some lovely pieces of jewellery for my wife that would not be found anywhere else - and my wife was impressed. I'll be back.

Would normally expect to find higher prices on tourist goods in this type of facility but was very pleasantly surprised. Goods here were extremely well priced and did not give one the feeling of being taken advantage of as a tourist. Purchased most of my gifts for friends back home here. Quality products and good prices.
