Walking Tours Kilkenny
Ormonde Language Tours specialise in Walking Tours Kilkenny.
Kilkenny is a beautiful old city located on the river Nore in the sunny south-east of Ireland. Kilkenny gets its name from Canice, a sixth century century saint. Literally translated Kilkenny means the church of Canice. Later Kilkenny became a very important Norman settlement in the 12th century. From this time until the end of the Irish civil war in 1923, Kilkenny’s history is very turbulent. Kilkenny appreciates its medieval history and so much work has been done in recent times to restore and preserve the many historic buildings in our city.
