The craft center is located in the stable and carriage house for the Kilkenny Castle. It is a lovely venue but is not up and running completely. Many shops are not open. Prices are also higher than in other shops in town
It is on the smaller side for one of the national museums/sites but if your in Kilkenny it is worth a stop. Don't think I would go out of my way to visit. But it does have some interesting crafts or displays
The artisan goods are displayed in a beautiful way, the shop people were knowledgable and helpful. The actual facility is a wonderful, clean, bright facility. Would recommend anyone to visit!
We enjoyed the interesting and well curated works on display while we were there. A full exploration added a great deal (we met a talented and very nice potter in one of the yards).
Pretty buildings right across the street from Kilkenny Castle. Nice but typical items for sale. Not what I expected but not terrible either.
Directly across from the Kilkenny Castle in the former stable area of the Butler Family, is the Craft Center. Walk through the entire area - one end to the other and admire the artisan skill. There is a tour map available to take one to various local villages where the crafts are produced - the Center is much more convenient... 更多
As far as attractions go, I spose it is the poor cousinn to the castle. Its signicance is it was the stables for the castle. Now the craft gallery which is worth a look. nice to just potter about looking at the crafts.
Lots of variety although a touch pricey. Still if you have limited time, this will give you access to all of the things you think you need to take home.
Stunning gardens and very close to Kilkenny Castle. Lots to look at and places for food. Can spend as much or as little time as you'd like here
