Eamon Langton has done more than any individual in Kilkenny to create the city as a destination for all.
Taking over the family public house on John Street in Kilkenny, he created one of the top restaurants in the country, then extended the business in to an hotel with other forms of accomodation. Further expansion saw the fantastic Set theatre and tea rooms developed. Langton House Hotel is (almost) as synonymous with Kilkenny as the castle.
He personifies the Kilkenny spirit. His passion for hurling, and his support of the black and amber, is not matched by any one person or organisation. His support of fellow businesses, charitable work and love of our county is well known, but not always documented - just the way he would like it.
