  River Court
by barryg23

Tourist and visitor numbers to Kilkenny have increased significantly in recent times and this is reflected in the number of new hotels, B&Bs, etc being built. Kilkenny is now seen as a weekend getaway place by Dubliners and stag parties in particular seem to be held here every weekend. The best time to visit is in the summer though you would be well advised to book accomodation in advance. If you are arriving during the 'Cat Laughs' comedy festival, the Nolan Park Concert, or Arts Week, in early June, mid-July and late August respectively, book well in advance.

In the picture is the River Court - a relatively new hotel overlooking the river. It's right in the middle of the city but can be a little pricey.
