A new campaign aims to capitalise on Kilkenny city's medieval past.
Kilkenny Tourism is hoping that visitors will avail of the Living History, Loving Kilkenny promotion to explore the area's 900-year-old history by visiting the many range of attractions associated with its past.
New events and attractions have lined up exhibitions for visitors to explore at places like the Medieval Mile, outdoor adventure and cultural centres, food destinations, historic houses and castles.
Many of Kilkenny's streets, gardens and buildings have been transformed with a series of outdoor exhibitions as part of the Connected Sculpture Trail.
Over 30 works have been done by 20 artists, designers and craftspeople, using multiple sites along Kilkenny's Medieval Mile and these will be open until October, with free entry.
Meanwhile, Butler Gallery in the city has reopened its doors in an ancient - but new for the gallery - venue of the historic Evans' home.
This house was built on the site of a 12th century Augustinian priory and was later the Anglican Church of St John Evans.
