Get ready to walk Kilkenny! One of the most commented things about Kilkenny city is that you can walk from one side of the city to the other with relative ease – a real bonus when it comes to festival time in Kilkenny. Definitely the most environmentally-friendly way to get around Kilkenny, you can avoid the traffic, soak up the views and get some fresh air in.
In the city you’ve got great walking from John Street to Parliament Street, through the parks and along the river. You can walk the Nore from Kilkenny to Bennettsbridge and back, take in the boardwalk and parkland along the Barrow in Graiguenamanagh, hit the walking trails in the Castlecomer Discovery Park and more.
