The Medieval Mile

Unlock the past and explore the rich culture and heritage of the medieval capital of Ireland as you navigate the narrow and winding streets of Ireland's Medieval Mile in Kilkenny.

At the heart of the city, the Medieval Mile allows visitors to truly experience Medieval Kilkenny as they explore the city's historic and cultural sites.

Engage with the city's long and colourful history as you explore the 13th century Kilkenny Castle, learn tales of witchcraft and sorcery or enjoy stunning views of the city from the top of St Canice's 100-foot round tower.

And of course, learn the history of Ireland's favourite ale at the Smithwick's Experience. We reside at the heart of the Medieval Mile, just a few minutes' walk up from the rows of roses in Kilkenny Castle's garden.

As compact as it is historical, a tour of Kilkenny on foot allows you to enjoy everything the city has to offer and the Medieval Mile is sure to delight. Explore the map below to see for yourself.
