Jenkinstown Wood & Walled Garden Walk

Enjoy a relaxing walk in the beautiful Wood & Walled Garden, just a 10-minute drive from the city. Both nature and history lovers will find something to admire: the forest floor is a carpet of bluebells in summer, and the route is scattered with old relics. Pass by a deer enclosure to and a garden commemorating Thomas Moore, whose lyrical poem "The Last Summer Rose" was inspired by these grounds.

Do & See

Kilkenny – a beautiful and ancient city where history and modernity fuse together on an unspoiled landscape. The ancient medieval city of Kilkenny has protected its precious heritage whilst evolving as one of Ireland’s most vibrant small cities. Its narrow slipways, side streets and preserved buildings, are matched only by its reputation for fine dining, great shopping, entertainment and accommodation.
