The Secret Garden Music during Kilkenny Arts Festival is usually one of the highlights of the festival year for Rothe House, because we can invite music and garden enthusiasts to enjoy some very special moments in our beautifully restored 17th century gardens. This year, due to COVID regulations, that is not possible. However, Kilkenny Arts Festival recorded some amazing music in our Phelan Room, the former reception room of the Rothe Family. They have made these recordings available on YouTube, so you can at least get a glimpse of the music.

You can bring your phone and watch and listen to it over a nice cuppa in our garden in your own time, how about that?


We were very happy to welcome Kilkenny Arts Festival back to Rothe House! See you again next year, hopefully!
