Music in Kilkenny

Bringing world-class music and musicians to the heart of County Kilkenny.


Music in Kilkenny provides a performance platform for world-class artists from Ireland and abroad.  Our diverse programming encompasses classical music in all its genres, from mediaeval times all the way to newly commissioned works.  We also stage traditional Irish music, world music and jazz concerts; presenting two seasons of concerts annually from September to June, performed in many beautiful venues both in Kilkenny City and across the County.
