Detailed Information

Located in the heart of the city on the Medieval Mile is one of Kilkenny’s true hidden gems.

This unique property is situated on a burgage plot and is the only one of its type open to the public in Ireland. Once the home of wealthy merchant and politician John Rothe Fitzpiers, he built the three-house complex for his wife Rose Archer and their eleven children between 1594 and 1610.

Rothe House & Garden is open year-round to the public for guided tours. The Merchant Shop sells a beautiful range of Irish craft products as well as history and local interest books.

Rothe House is a unique venue for weddings, workshops and events.
