Our story

Since its establishment in 1948, Kilkenny Chamber has been the voice of business at every meeting and event in which key decisions were being made about the future direction of Kilkenny Inc.

Over the years it has provided supports for businesses in the areas of Training, Networking, Trade Services, Lobbying and promoting Kilkenny as a great place in which to do business.

What we do

In recent times Kilkenny Chamber has been particularly prominent in its engagement with Yulefest, Kilkenny Age Friendly initiative, the #ShopKilkenny shop local campaign and the provision of targeted training to the Retail Sector aimed at combating the challenges from online shopping.

Some of the unique initiatives and events which simply would not happen without Kilkenny Chamber include the Kilkenny Business Awards, Kilkenny Chambers Corporate Golf Challenge in Mount Juliet, the Kilkenny Gift Voucher scheme, the Medieval Mile Pass and International Trade Development Services.

70 years in the making

Kilkenny Chamber is a vital cog in the wheel of commerce in the city and county with the clear objective of advancing business together.

Established now for 70 years, it is solidly positioned to continue its work of supporting the business dynamic in Kilkenny well into the future.

Chamber Update

For the duration of the Covid-19 crisis, Kilkenny Chamber staff will be working from home and will continue to provide our full range of services.



We will continue to lobby on behalf of businesses throughout this challenging time and are scheduled to have regular meetings with the Dept of the Taoiseach as the situation evolves.


Keep up to date with us on our website www.kilkennychamber.ie, or on our social media pages.


We are still working on your behalf and you can contact us on 056 7752767, or at admin@kilkennychamber.ie. We are thinking of all those businesses who have taken the difficult, but correct, decision to close their doors until further notice, and we look forward to supporting them all when they reopen.

We also encourage everyone to support those businesses which will remain open – in so far as is safe.


Thank you to all those front-line workers who are working hard to keep us all safe and well.
