Kilkenny City, County Kilkenny
Kilkenny is a city steeped in history with Kilkenny Castle providing the primary attraction in the town. The city’s history dates back from the 6th century when it was a vibrant medieval town. St. Canice’s Cathedral was the centre point of the original town and the name Kilkenny comes from an anglicized version of the Irish name Cill Ceannaigh which means Church of Canice. The round tower at the church is the oldest standing structure in the town and one of only two round towers in Ireland that visitors are able to climb.
