River Nore walk featured in Irish Times

The wonderful  River Nore walk between Kilkenny and Bennettsbridge was featured in the Irish Times. The trail stretches for 11 km and starts at Canal square under Kilkenny Castle. There is also a very attractive  loop and board walk  starting at Canal square. this extends   as far as the new pedestrian bridge at Ossory  Bridge  and back on the opposite river side.   This  loop which meanders through a wooded area  along the river Nore is  c.5km in length.   The City Loop was only completed in 2014 and it is already  very popular with visitors.

The River Nore and associated wooded areas and meadows reach right into our City centre.  The planting of new trees   along the river Nore as part of this initiative  will enhance our Environment and be of benefit to our wildlife and biodiversity.

If you wish to assist or volunteer on this initiative please contact us at mail@keepkilkennybeautiful.com

River Nore Board walk officially opened.

An extensive new river Nore board walk has  opened  for use. It is now possible to walk down the Canal walk from Canal square, cross Ossory Bridge and return along the new  Lacken Board walk back to the City Centre. This major development enhances the extensive amenities already available  along the river Nore  in both the Greens Bridge and Ossory bridge directions.
