Breakfast overlooking the Nore

Canal Square Egg

What better way to start your day than a delicious hearty breakfast in Canal Square Café. Nestled alongside the historic walls of Kilkenny Castle, overlooking the River Nore, here you will find locally roasted coffee, freshly baked pastries, and a delicious breakfast to set you up for a day of exploration!

Family Cycling Tour

Kct Treasure Hunt

Explore Kilkenny City on a morning  cycling tour with Kilkenny Cycling Tours and visit all of the main tourist attractions, as well as some hidden treasures that lie in the Medieval City. Covering about 10km in total, (or shorter for those who want less of a challenge!), this is a great orientation tour of the city of Kilkenny and if you have children, they have kiddie bicycle seats so the little ones don’t miss out!!

“It is easy to forget now, how effervescent and free we all felt that summer”…

Refuel with Pizza!

Larivista Gourmet Pizza Market

Time for everyone to refuel with some delicious hand crafted pizza lunch in La Rivista. Just a short walk from Kilkenny Castle, La Rivista’s new Gourmet Pizza Restaurant is a casual spot, offering everything from salads to buffalo wings and delicious deserts

Fabulous Falcons

Hawkeye Falconry Pricilla

No day trip is complete without trying something new! Learn the ancient art of falconry and meet the newest member of the Hawkeye School of Falconry, a Chilean blue eagle named Priscilla! This is a great experience for all the family to enjoy and a chance to get up close and personal with these magnificent creatures.
