ROTHE HOUSE: Kilkenny

This Saturday is an opportunity to admire the wonderfully restored 16th Century garden and orchard

Kilkenny Archaeological Society (KAS) are staging their Garden Party at Rothe House on Saturday from 3pm, an event which has become established as a Summer Social Highlight.

Many special delights have been devised for this year, which will add greatly to the core attraction, which is the interaction and chat between those attending while they admire the wonderfully restored 16th Century garden and orchard.

Guests will be greeted with ripe strawberries and cream, chilled white wine or soft drinks in the delightful surroundings of the splendid late, medieval garden at Rothe House. Proceedings get under way at 3pm, and will include a most interesting talk on the garden and its contents by Rothe House’s dedicated head gardener, Mary Pike.

Added to this will be musical interludes organised and presented by Anne Karoline Distel, one of the very energetic council members of Kilkenny Archaeological Society. She will be accompanied by Pat Wall, an enjoyable, not-to-mention formidable, preforming duo.

Entrance is through Rothe House per usual, or alternatively, there is a step-free access via the gate in New Building lane. Admission is a very reasonable €10.
