There is no better time to treat yourself to a break in Kilkenny than in the summer months. A summer break at the Kilkenny Ormonde Hotel has something for everyone and will bring you to the heart of Kilkenny City. Thanks to our fantastic location in the heart of Kilkenny City, you will have a never ending list of things to do during your summer break such as a visit to Kilkenny Castle, the Medievel Mile Museum or the Smithwicks Experience. The Kilkenny Castle and 50 acre Castle Park with its fabulous childrens' playground is just a 3 minute stroll away while the cute cafés, boutiques and craft studios for which Kilkenny is renowned, dot the medieval streets.

Kilkenny has a wealth of activities on offer
From medieval mile walking tours of the city to guided art tours in Butler Gallery, there’s something cultural in Kilkenny to suit everyone.

Treat your taste buds to a selection of the fabulous flavours of Kilkenny at Kilkenny’s Farmers Market on Thursdays and Saturdays weekly, explore the city's gourmets stores or the Foodhall of Kilkenny Design or you could enrol in a master class at Cake Face Cookery School.

Explore Kilkenny craft at the National Craft Gallery and in the studios of potters and jewellers in the city; like Castle Arch Pottery and Rudolf Heltzel jewellers. Take a drive into the countryside to Jerpoint Glass or Nicholas Mosse Pottery & Country Shop and Moth to a Flame Candlemakers in Bennettsbridge or to the wondeful new showrooms at Cushendale Woollen Mills in the picturesque village of Graiguenamanagh.

For a really different experience, why not try your hand at hurling followed by a pint in Malzards Bar or experience the sport of kings with Hawkeye Falconry.
