We’ve even developed a special mini-brochure just for you to download. It gives a snapshot of some of what Kilkenny has to offer families. It’s even broken down into what you and your family can do on sunny AND rainy days! How nice are we?
Finally, in case you thought we forgot that Mum and Dad might like some ‘me-time’, we haven’t.
