The Medieval Mile Museum All Day Tour

9 reviews
Get acquainted with Kilkenny’s rich medieval history on this audio tour around the city’s Medieval Mile Museum. If you’re new to Kilkenny, the Museum is the perfect way to get your bearings and learn about the city: the Museum is full of exhibits detailing the history of the city’s buildings and streets, from the smallest laneway to Kilkenny Castle itself. The Museum is also a landmark in its own way, built inside an impeccably-preserved 13th century church.

Beautiful castle and grounds. Self guided tour and some rooms are not currently available to view, staff available in large rooms and all seemed very approachable.

Really enjoyed our sightseeing tour of Kilkenny Castle. If you visit Kilkenny,definately take an hour or so and visit the castle. There are guides throughout,and believe me they really know what they are talking about.

We visited a number of castles on our visit to Ireland, and this was one of the best. Good job with the decor and the explanations of how the rooms were used.

Our trip to Kilkenny Castle was on the spur of the moment but we had no problem getting tickets to tour the castle. Exploring the castle was fantastic and very interesting. Be advised if you do not have good mobility this tour might not be for you as there are a lot of steps and it is a one way system so you cannot backtrack. The rooms that you visit are beautifully restored and a lot of care has been taken by the OPW with the restorations. The Cafe at the end of the tour was amazing. The presentation of the food was five star but not with five star prices. The gardens and outside areas are beautiful and even though we went at the end of the season there were still some roses in bloom. I would highly recommend a visit to Kilkenny Castle.
