From now until the end of 2014, we’re delighted to invite under 12s (accompanied!) free admission to Rothe House & Garden every Saturday. Drop in and see our amazing collection of artefacts, including: James Freney’s blunderbuss (18th century highway man of Kilkenny); our 10,000 year old Giant Irish Deer skeleton head; and our 17th century dog skeleton. Also meet our ducks who wander the garden every day, keeping unwanted slugs at bay!
Visit Rothe House
A visit to Rothe House is high on the list of things to do in the Marble City. Built between 1594 and 1610 this was the home of the renowned merchant, landowner and Mayor of Kilkenny City, John Rothe Fitz Piers, his wife Rose Archer, and their twelve children.
