Great place to visit perfect for family .I loved it because it was all so scenic and calm and the kids loved the garden and house. Gift shop was amazing quite expensive though but certainly worth it.

A great place to shop! All sorts of unique finds at reasonable prices. Lots to choose from and fun to browse. If you worry about suitcase weight going home like I do, they will ship at reasonable rates for quick delivery.

The shops are in a beautiful building with high end, high quality, locally made goods and a cafe. Unfortunately when I was there, the small outdoor shops were closed. This is a great place to get gifts or to treat oneself.

It is too bad that this place is not signed, we wondered in with out realizing where we were. The Garden was great, but more signs would be nice to see.

The studios of the National Craft Gallery have been cleverly installed in the former Kilkenny Castle stables and today it looks as if the various workshops have always been there. That said, there didn't seem to be a large number of studios, and those we...More

Excellent shopping opportunity at the large craft centre which has many genuine Irish produce and craft to purchase. Excellent cafe upstairs and very good facilities. The working craftsman and women behind the shops are worth visiting as is the garden of the house.
