    Kilkenny Design Centre: Irish Arts and Crafts

    by yooperprof Updated Aug 7, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Highly recommended one-stop shopping (much of it duty-free) for Irish crafts: glassware, pottery, woolens, linens, local stoneware, jams, jellies, stationary, etc. Excellent selection and helpful staff, immediately across from Kilkenny Castle in a converted stables.

    After we walked around the castle grounds, we went across the street to a craft market place which had a cafeteria and ate lunch. Afterward we wandered through the design center, but we didn't buy anything. Apparently some of the artisens work in shops in the courtyard in the back, but we didn't go there either.

    What to buy: Textiles, knitwear, pottery, glass, crystal, jewelry, Belleck and other gifts

    What to pay: Lambswool tartan scarf €76.95
    Shawl collar sweater €103.50
    Hand painted mug €15.95
    Pair of Waterford flutes €80.00
    Silver Celtic cross pendant €81.50
    Belleck vase €26.00

    Kilkenny Design Centre: Professional local crafts

    by leplaya Written Jul 20, 2006

    Across the street from the Castle, the design center includes local made crafts, including sliver, gold, pottery, and much more. There are several buildings, each with a different craft. The crafts are pretty expensive, though.

    Kilkenny Shop: Kilkenny Design Centre

    Don't miss this shop once you're in Kilkenny! It's situated just across from Kilkenny Castle - so after a lovely 45 minute tour guided walk through the rooms and halls of the castle, you can visit the shop too. In fact, the premises you will see once were the stables of the castle. Today, apart from the shop, there you can find workshops, where local craftsmen produce wonderful vases, plates, mugs, jewellery...
