Autumn is the best time of year as the air gets chillier, the cosy sweaters come out, the festivities of Halloween are approaching and comfort food is key on these colder days. But don’t hang up your boots just yet as there is adventure awaiting you in Kilkenny.  This is the perfect time to get out and about and enjoy fishing or angling in the River Nore or a guided horse trek with the family.

Or why not trail Kilkenny with one of the many scenic walks on offer. During Autumn the landscapes are ablaze with autumnal colours, the skies have a wonderful purple and orange glow, and the wildlife is thriving with activity. The perfect season for exploring the Kilkenny Trails with walks suitable for all abilities.

The streets of Kilkenny reflect their medieval roots with exciting outdoor historic sites that are among Ireland’s best. From the castle to cathedrals, Rothe House & Gardens, Butler House & Gardens to Kells Priory in the countryside. Embark on your Medieval Kilkenny Outdoor trail this Autumn.

It’s All Here….in Kilkenny!
