Kilkenny Activity Centre

So, obviously we have to name ourselves as the best place for activities in Kilkenny everyday,  not just the weekend. We are not the only ones who think so, have a look at our many, many reviews on Google or Facebook, and also TripAdvisor. Do read the bad ones too, we only get a small few of those and we respond to every single one.

Kilkenny Castle

This gorgeous and uniquely preserved Kilkenny Castle is the first thing that tourists do when they visit the Marble city. It is definitely something everyone should do at least once. Have a walk around the outside green grounds of the castle, or tour the famous building and all its landmarks.

Dunmore Cave

Dunmore Cave is a bit outside the city. But the gorgeous naturally occurring geological structure is something that you should really try and visit whether you are just in the city short term or whether you live here. Don’t miss out on the Dunmore Cave!

Kiltorcan Raceway

Kiltorcan is a bit outside of the city, but it is one of the best karting options in Ireland and the closest option to Kilkenny city. Simply get in touch with them to get a great day out karting if you’ve alreayd tried the 9 different activities that we offer here in the Kilkenny Activity Centre.

St. Canice’s Cathedral and Round Tower

The Cathedral based in the city centre boasts an ideal round tower that manages to allow you to see the complete city from one spot. Bring a coat though because it can get quite cold there, but it’s a perfect place to start off or finish off your groups visit to the famous Hurling city of Kilkenny.

Castlecomer Discovery Park

The Castlecomer Discovery Park is a not-for-profit initiative based about a 20-25 minute drive outside of Kilkenny city. It features more extreme sports like zip-lining, wall-climbing and  tree-walking to name a few.
