Merchant Shop

Welcome to the Merchant Shop at Rothe House. We pride ourselves in supporting Irish designers, makers, crafters and producers to bring you an array of timeless and thoughtful gifts to remember your visit to Kilkenny.

From woven throws, scarves and blankets to contemporary Irish jewellery, leather bags and ceramics, you are sure to find the perfect gift for someone special (or a keepsake for yourself!)

Our recently opened Book Shop is where you will find a unique selection of books on Irish and Kilkenny history, folklore, traditional cookery, Irish biographies and a gorgeous range of children’s books. We sell the journal of the Kilkenny Archaeological Society, the ‘Old Kilkenny Review’, as well as a handpicked selection of special interest books by local authors.

Our beautiful range of prints and cards, many of which are garden-inspired, allow you to take home an image of Ireland that will stay with you forever.
