Read the fascinating stories of the thatched villages of South Kilkenny, of Ballyspellan Spa, of the trio of treasures at Kilree, of Dunmore Cave and, in the city itself, of Rothe House and the Bishop's Palace. You can also learn all about Cushendale Woollen Mills, Fiddown Nature Reserve and the burial place of King Heremon.
