How To Spend A Girl’s Weekend In Kilkenny
Kilkenny is known to be one of Ireland’s top spots for a great girl’s weekend break. Considering Kilkenny’s vibrant nightlife, paired with fantastic bars and friendly locals, it is not hard to see why it is a firm favourite. There is so much to do here it was hard to choose our favourites but here are a few recommendations.
As a special treat, and something you won’t forget in a hurry, try afternoon tea in Mocha Vintage Tea Rooms. This French-inspired restaurant is located on Gas House Lane, close to the train station and is full of floral, old-world charm. Not only does it serve traditional afternoon tea, there is a great selection of sweet and savoury dishes, all homemade. Step into the past and enjoy some time-out in style.
What girl’s weekend would be complete without some serious pampering from some of the best in the business! To get you ready for a big night out (or to help you feel better after one!) visit Kieran O’Gorman Hair and Beauty Day Spa. They have a huge range of hair and beauty treatments available, everything from tanning and nails to make-up and hair and all delivered in a welcoming and relaxing atmosphere. Their staff are friendly and accommodating and nothing is too much hassle.
MacDonagh Shopping Centre Kilkenny’s new leisure, business and shopping district with over 40 top-quality retail outlets to choose from. You can pick up a bargain in the designer discount store, TK Maxx, or a great quality pair of workout shoes in Sketchers. There is something to suit all tastes and every budget, MacDonagh has everything you need for some retail therapy. They even have a bowling centre if you want to challenge each other to some good clean fun.
From good clean fun to getting your hands dirty, why not try something very different in the Kilkenny Adventure Centre. They offer fantastic packages for groups which can be tailored to suit you. Some of the activities they offer are paintball, splatball, bubble soccer, body bowling, foot darts and archery darts. We can only imagine the laughs and brilliant memories you will make doing activities you will certainly never forget!
Finish off a great weekend with a few drinks and some excellent music in one of Kilkenny’s premier live music venues, Cleeres Pub. Specialising in Blues, Trad and Rock music, Cleeres has a great neighbourhood atmosphere and is a regular watering hole for the friendly local patrons as well as the lively tourist trade. Check their schedule to see what great musical acts they have booked.
