Kilkenny’s thriving food scene includes a buoyant artisan food community, six cookery schools, award winning restaurants, food festivals, a weekly Farmers Market and a wealth excellent bars, cool cafés, delis and more. Locals are spoiled for choice, while visitors can try initiatives such as the Taste of Kilkenny Food Trail as one of many perfect ways to feast on the best that Kilkenny has to offer.
