Start your journey of Kilkenny discovery at the Medieval Mile Museum, Kilkenny and watch the city’s rich history unfold.

The welcoming museum guides and assistants' objective is to help you safely experience the Medieval Mile Museum. Explore, wander and wonder and let them tell you their wonderful stories. Learn how the High Crosses were made, what their engravings represent and the stories that they tell.

The team at the museum have designed an Interactive audio tour which can be downloaded directly to your device, along with the museum's LEGO® Hunt.

Go at your own pace on the self-guided tour of the museum and uncover the history of religious relics and intricately carved gravestones through interactive displays and informative signage.

Explore the streets of the Medieval Mile on a walking tour and get a real feel for what life was like as a Tudor merchant in Kilkenny.

Why we like it
  • Learn about Kilkenny's Tudor past.
  • Choose from a range of guided or self-guided tours.
  • See historic relics and HIgh Crosses inside a restored church.
  • Younger visitors can enjoy the hunt for the LEGO® minifigures.
