Why not take part in Kilkenny's celebrations for Heritage Week? There is a huge variety of fun, entertaining and informative events taking place throughout the city and county as part of National Heritage Week. Most events are free, and many of the events are family friendly. "With 60 events taking place throughout the county there is something there for everyone", says Dearbhala Ledwidge, Heritage Officer.
Take a guided walk of Kilkenny City's independence Story; be a wildlife detective for a day; learn how to research your family tree; or let the kids take part in archaeology workshops.
The Heritage Office of Kilkenny County Council has produced a brochure which provides details of all the events taking place around the county.

Heritage Week is co-ordinated by the Heritage Council, in conjunction with the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht and is part of European Heritage Days, which is celebrated in 40 countries across Europe.
