Where to stay in Kilkenny

For a historical Irish experience, stay in Kilkenny County's namesake city, a medieval destination with no shortage of lodging options. If you are interested in exploring the central sights of this city, stay at one of the many hotels, hostels, or bed and breakfasts near its center. For something more affordable, head to the outskirts and look into guesthouse options. You can also choose a nearby spa if you want to splurge on a relaxing getaway.
