Kilkenny Castle Design Center is located directly across from Kilkenny Castle in the Castle's old stables. The shops contain expensive items for sale, some of which appeared to be from Ireland. Nothing I saw was overly "Irish." The shops did have good prices on Barbour jackets. The shops will also take the VAT refund off your purchase there. The desserts at the Kilkenny Design Center restaurant looked beautiful, and the blueberry cupcakes are delicious. Recommended only if you have some extra time to kill after seeing the castle. Missable otherwise.
