Kilkenny City
The city and the county of Kilkenny are located in the sunny Southeast
in the heart of IrelandIt is without doubt one of the most beautiful cities in Ireland and a much visited tourist attraction of the 'Emerald Isle'.

Anyone who wants to get to know Ireland at its best, you have found the right placeEven though Kilkenny is only 60 minutes from Dublin, you can experience all that Ireland has to offer.  The city of Kilkenny is dominated by majestic and impressive buildings, the most famous being 'Kilkenny Castle'. 30,000 people live in Kilkenny. Scattered throughout the city are cafés, pubs, galleries and small shops. By day and by night, they are full of life. The untapped natural landscape in and around Kilkenny is an ideal starting point to get to know Ireland. There are many attractions nearby: St.Canice's Cathedral, Rothe House & Garden, Jerpoint Abbey, Butler House, Kilkenny Design Centre, Mount Juliet and many more. Kilkenny has a colorful history. In the 13th Century, it was named the medieval capital of Ireland. Kilkenny is also sometimes called 'the marble city'. It got its name because of the black marble, which can be found across the entire county of Kilkenny. Particularly impressive rock formations can be found in the 'Dunmore caves'. Our tour takes us to these caves - one of the darkest places in Ireland. Castle in Kilkenny CityAll Irishmen, and especially the ones in Kilkenny (the 'Kilkenny Cats' are the best hurling team in Ireland) are sport fans. The sport and leisure facilities on offer in Kilkenny are extensive: golf, hurling, soccer, tennis, bowling, pitch and putt, snooker & billiards, rugby etc. Even students who like to stroll or go shopping, are not left empty-handed: there are many shops offering international brands in the city center and a number of shopping centers (MacDonough Junction & Market Cross Shopping Centre).

Our school building is located approx. 10 minutes walking from the city centre, in a well-kept and safe neighbourhood of Kilkenny. There are numerous eateries, shopping and entertainment facilities located close-by. 

Our school in Kilkenny is located here: Gaelscoil Osrai, Loughboy, Kilkenny.

Kilkenny - an ideal place to learn English and to get to know Ireland & its people.
