Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce was delighted to welcome Ireland AM when they visited Kilkenny City on Saturday 12th December as part of its #BackingBusiness campaign.  Simon Delaney met our President Colin Ahern, and some of our members to discuss how business in Kilkenny is bouncing back from two lockdowns, and is open for business.

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, or on our social media pages.


We are still working on your behalf and you can contact us on 056 7752767, or at 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.
