Kilkenny - Popular Tourist Destination in Ireland

Kilkenny is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Ireland as well a weekend getaway for many Irish citizens. Well regarded for its vibrant nightlife it has become increasingly popular in recent years. The city is also famous for its many medieval buildings and is referred to as the "Marble City."

Kilkenny is 80 miles from Dublin Airport, 90 from Cork or Shannon. Train service from Dublin and Waterford. Kilkenny (Irish: Cill Chainnigh or Church of Canice) is the county seat of County Kilkenny, Ireland. The city proper has a population of 8,625, but including environs is 23,967; it is Ireland's smallest city both by area and population. Kilkenny is located on the River Nore and is famed for its history and nightlife. Kilkenny was granted a Royal Charter in 1609 by King James I; its status as a city was most recently recognised by Section 10(7) of the Local Government Act 2001, although it does not have the administrative privileges of other cities in the Republic of Ireland and is administered by a borough council.

Kilkenny, spanning the river Nore, is the only city in the Republic of Ireland that is not tidal. Kilkenny is also the only city in the republic that has neither an institute of technology nor university; although the National University of Ireland, Maynooth maintains an outreach centre at St. Kierans College.
