Welcome to Rothe House & Garden
Located in the heart of Kilkenny City and situated at the mid point of the Medieval Mile is one of Irelands true hidden gems: Rothe House & Garden. The property on a burgage plot is the only one of its type open to the public in Ireland. It was once the home of wealthy merchant and politician John Rothe Fitzpiers. He built the three-house complex for his wife Rose Archer and their eleven children between 1594 and 1610.
You are invited to wander and explore at your leisure; view the magnificent architecture, step through cobbled courtyards and take in the relaxed atmosphere of our extensive garden. It’s all waiting for you.
