Kilkenny is a city in the south-east part of Ireland with an incredibly fascinating history and cultural heritage. The heritage of the city is depicted in various historic buildings throughout the city such as Kilkenny Castle, St. Canice's Cathedral and round tower, Rothe House, Shee Alms House, Black Abbey, St. Mary's Cathedral, Kilkenny Town Hall, St. Francis Abbey, Grace's Castle, and St. John's Priory. These are all places the staff of the Norwegian Embassy saw when visiting Kilkenny Thursday 03.03.2016.
In addition to the historical sights of Kilkenny, the city is also known for its culture, especially with regard to craft and design. When visiting Kilkenny, the Norwegian Embassy went to see the Kilkenny Design Centre where the Not Too Precious exhibition was currently on display. The centre provided excellent service and a lot of educational information regarding previous, current and future bilateral craft collaborations between Norway and Ireland.
The embassy was further invited to see the Kilkenny castle and were offered a tour to see the inside of the castle and learn more about the history of Kilkenny. The pictures below presents a nice overview of both Kilkenny and the Embassy’s visit.
