I moved to Kilkenny for work 10 years ago and have found it a great place to live. It is a great city with a great spirit to it. This is seen in the many festivals like Rhythm and Roots, the wonderful Kilkenny Arts Festival and the Cat laughs. The Arts Festival is a special time when the city showcases fantastic international acts and yet maintains its intimate feel and access. I love the fact that you have all this and within five minutes you are beside the river able to watch the herons wait patiently to pick off dinner. Nearby are some great restaurants like Campagne and Mt Juliet is just 20 mins away. Both great places to enjoy a lunch or dinner.
