  • Really nice glimpse into the past. The staff were very nice. We went here in the early afternoon and had a good time. Large tour groups started rolling in as we were leaving, which would have diminished the overall experience if we had gotten there at the same time. Would have made the self-tour much harder since the “audio touch squares” could be easy to miss and the audio guide is a bit on the quiet side.
  • Loved the tour with our tour guide Patrick! This museum has only been open for about 2 years, and is very well done with a mix of ancient stone tombs and interactive media. There’s a fun LEGO people scavenger hunt for the kids and a stone sarcophagus type thing you can climb into. Pat has a mesmerizing storytelling ability with some witty comments littered throughout the history. You get to see old maps, tombstones, artifacts found on the site, and hear all about how Kilkenny was founded and thrived. Tour took about an hour.
