County Kilkenny

4.4

Marble County

Named for the major city within its bounds, County Kilkenny covers a landlocked region in southeast Ireland within the province of Leinster. The historical sites of medieval Kilkenny city, which are more than 400 years old, make it a popular destination. Outside the eponymous city, many cozy Irish towns dot the landscape, with a good number positioned along the banks of the River Nore. The county's countryside is marked with winding rivers, gentle hills, and vast wooded areas. Our Ireland online travel planner allows you to plan your trip to County Kilkenny and a wealth of other destinations big and small.
