“This doesn't belong on here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

It's a small approx 14 ft wide passage from one street to the next with a few shops in-between. There are alley ways more exciting!

“Meh. Part of Kilkenny History”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

The Butter Slip is significant historically, and with a guided tour includes good back history. Certainly would not make this the highlight our Kilkenny. It is, without doubt, part of that history.

“Butter Slip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

See and hear some of the finest traditional Irish music buskers displaying their amazing talent here in the Butter Slip...it's a 'slip' it's one of several small alleyways which connects one street to another to save you going around the long way....a slip or shortcut through the buildings....to 'slip' from A to B.

“Just a tiny alley”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Butter Slip is just a tiny alley way that gives you a short cut in between streets. It's cute, but not that impressive. Still worth a look!

“Best Alley in Ireland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

I saw this on TA while looking at things to do in Kilkenny and happened upon while out walking around. I did not recognize it at first until I got to the other side and saw the side matching the photograph. This alley sort of became one of the the jokes of our trip and said I would give it five circles on here. So for those of you looking at this and do not have sense of humor, this is not really an attraction. It is literally an alley that connects the two main shopping streets in Kilkenny... so if you visit it do so for fun... and don't be pissy when you find out it is little more.
