Rose Garden, Kilkenny Castle

The Castle, Kilkenny
+353 56 7761106

Kilkenny Castle estate boasts both formal and informal gardens including a long-established rose garden to the front of the castle. Close to the Rose Garden is a central fountain from which axial paths spread out. The focus of this beautifully recreated Rose Garden was to recapture garden features that may have been present during the ducal period. Incidently the Rose Garden has been designed in the shape of a Celtic High Cross with the castle at its peak.


The Rose Garden is semi wheelchair accessible. Wheel chair access is available through the main castle courtyard not via Mayors Walk. 


Parking in nearby Ormonde St and other city centre carparks.
