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.
