Kilkenny's Food and Craft Classics
For foodies, the Kilkenny boasts a thriving artisan food scene with organic orchards, a trout farm, and everything from artisan cheesemakers, cute cafés and chocolatiers, to the most cosmopolitan of city restaurants.
Kilkenny has also long been associated with creativity and design, and has a deserved reputation of the “Craft Capital of Ireland”. Kilkenny is home to the National Craft Gallery and the renowned Kilkenny Design Centre, as well as being home to renowned potters, jewellers and craftspeople working in willow, glassblowing, stonecarving and weaving; many of whom you can visit in their own studios.
