Valentines Day at home this year, spread the love and pack it with local Kilkenny goodies!

It’s February! We made it through the long month of January and we’re looking for any reason to celebrate really, so why not make February 14th just that big celebration! With no restaurants or pubs open, our plans might be a little different from other years, but take the opportunity to soak it up and enjoy with some of the best food options in Ireland at our fingertips in Kilkenny. We have compiled a list to get you started and fire up those taste buds!

Find your favourite restaurant and dine in style!

A real treat for some is getting their meals handed to them, and if your not a budding chef, then give online ordering a go! A lot of our favourite restaurants have made the leap to online orders and we are delighted! So, check out your local restaurants and start piecing together the most romantic meal of the year! 

Cook it yourself! Get all your supplies!

Kilkenny is home to some of the best of Ireland’s food producers, chef’s at the top of their game chose local Kilkenny produce from veg to meat to the flour from the Little Mill, we have it all at your fingertips! Check out some of these food producers and get cooking!
