Kilkenny Castle Yard & Butler House Conservation Project

Email me more information on this:

Project Description

The project entails researching the history and assess the archaeological potential of Kilkenny's Butler House buildings, gardens and sub-surface. This 18th century complex of stables, coach-houses and Dower House for Kilkenny Castle has been maintained and operated by Kilkenny Civic Trust.  While the site is well-known, there remain many questions regarding its use over the last four centuries. This research project will include public consultations, primary research and assessments. The end result will be a road map for its future preservation and its continuing, sustainable use by the local community.
