Life after Covid: New plan to make Kilkenny Ireland’s top outdoor activity destination
With the rollout of Covid-19 vaccine ramping up across Ireland, Kilkenny is positioning itself to be ready for tourists when the industry reopens.
Kilkenny Tourism, the group tasked with advocating the Marble city and county, Kilkenny Tourism, is already preparing to re-open tourism this Spring and outdoor activities will be to the forefront of the plan.
Kilkenny Tourism chairperson Ciaran Conroy said: “It has been an unprecedented year for the hospitality sector and at every corner our hotels, attractions and restaurants were met with challenges and closures.
“Kilkenny is preparing to meet those changes in attitudes by offering a full ‘outdoor-focussed’ experience to all our visitors in 2021.
“Kilkenny offers such a variety of outdoor attractions that will reassure visitors they can be guaranteed an incredible holiday in the knowledge their safety is paramount and all their expectations are not only met, but exceeded!”
Some of the key elements of Kilkenny’s Spring Tourism offering are: Kilkenny City ‘On Foot’ and the Medieval Kilkenny Tour including the Kilkenny Design Centre, the Medieval Mile, Rothe House, Kilkenny Castle, and Butler House.
Others include Jerpoint Abbey and Park, Augustine Kells Priory, Woodstock Gardens and Arboretum, and Kilfane Glen & Waterfall.
The tourism plan will focus on outdoor walking and cycling tours and outdoor adventures such as Castlecomer Discovery Park and the tranquility and charm of Inistoige and Graiguenamanagh.
