Kilkenny city centre offers an original and eclectic mix of designer labels, high street names and independent shops. Wander the web of shopping streets to browse an amazing array of boutiques, vintage stores, artisan craft shops and fashion favourites. Whether you're here on a shopping break in Kilkenny or just passing the time during your stay, you'll be spoilt for choice.

In Kilkenny's old town you'll find the likes of Padmore & Barnes who specialise in outdoor and active wear for travel, sports, ski, equestrian and any activity you can think of. For chic styling visit the boutiques on Kieran Street for fashionable day wear and edgy evening trends. If you're looking for the perfect gift try the Kilkenny Design Centre opposite Kilkenny Castle for Waterford Crystal, knitwear, jewellery and so much more.

Just a short walk from Wolfe Tone Street is MacDonagh Junction; discover a range of shops with high street names as well as independent retailers.

For tasty treats and freshest produce, visit the Farmers Market, held every Thursday on the Parade.
