Castle Yard at Kilkenny Design

Castle Yard, Kilkenny
GPS coordinates: N52.64957 W7.24966

Castle Yard is owned by Kilkenny Civic Trust and is home to a number of thriving craft and design businesses where it is possible to watch skilled craftspeople at work.

Entrance to the Yard is through an arched gateway spanned by the Kilkenny Design Centre and is also home to the National Craft Gallery.

Situated in the heart of the city, the Castle Yard forms a natural and scenic link from Kilkenny Castle itself, to the beautifully-restored walled garden of Butler House, the Georgian Dower House of the Castle.

The magnificent Globe returns again this year to the Castle Yard for 10 performances. Running every night (except Wed 13th) at 7.30pm and with a matinee on the final Sunday at 2pm. BOOK NOW http://www.kilkennyarts.ie/events/details/shakespeares-globe-theatre-much-ado-about-nothing/
