Festivals in Kilkenny

“Welcome to Kilkenny – the festival capital of Ireland.”

Regular visitors to Kilkenny will have heard that phrase before and it’s not far off. From early to late in the year, you’re never too far away from a festival atmosphere in Kilkenny.

Whether it’s Kilkenny Tradfest in March, the Kilkenny Roots Festival in May, The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival in June right through to Kilkenny Arts Festival, Kilkenomics, Subtitle and Yulefest, there’s plenty of festival buzz in the Marble City across the year.
