“A lovely little alleyway... not an attraction”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

Nice little alleyway to walk down if you're wandering round town (which you should!). Take a left at the bottom and walk to the Kyteler's Inn, a great pub with an interesting history. Kilkenny's a great city to wander round and this alleyway is typical of the charming atmosphere

“Really?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

There was nothing to speak of down there. Why people ever starting reviewing this is beyond me. It's just a little alley connecting 2 streets with noting remarking about it.

“IT'S A SMALL ALLEYWAY ........WITH A FEW SHOPS EITHER SIDE !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

It's an alley way. You'd walk through it in two minutes. Nothing to write home about. It's pretty for an alley way. But that's it. If your into alley way's pay it a visit. I certainly would not go out of my way to visit it. No point.
Theres normally a busker there playing music and looking for money.

“Just an alley way”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

You can take "different" photo shoots, but just a laneway.

It will take you between two shopping strips

Nice little alley between the streets in Kilkenny with one of the best Italian restaurants , The Colosseum, nestled halfway.
