Rothe House Museum & Gardens
Rothe House Museum & Garden is an historic house in Kilkenny. It is the only example of an early 17th-century merchant’s townhouse in Ireland. It is the centre for Irish genealogy in Kilkenny. The beautiful garden, open since 2008, is a reconstruction of an early 17th-century urban garden, and has become a very popular garden to visit in Ireland. This beautiful house has played host to a series of talks, lectures and workshops through the years including Seamus Heaney in 1974 and Michael Gordon, the American composer, in 2013.
