Location information for Kilkenny

Kilkenny attracts visitors from all over the world with its medieval charm, beautifully well-preserved buildings, modern shops and galleries added to a lovely backdrop to this old city. Visiting Kilkenny's attractions by car rental is a must due to the variety of historical structures scattered around the city.

The entire city of Kilkenny can be viewed from St Canices Cathedral, named after a sixth century monk, St Canice, and built in the 13th century. Its tower is a great example of a 10th century Christian Round Tower and the cathedral itself happens to be the second longest in Ireland.

One of Ireland's most remarkable castles is the Kilkenny Castle, which Norman's built upon arriving to the city in the 12th century. Several medieval buildings surround the area and are easily accessible by car hire in Kilkenny. St. Mary's Cathedral holds the seat of the Roman Catholic Bishop of Ossory.

Take a drive by cheap car hire in Kilkenny down Abbey Street to witness the remainders of the Kilkenny City Walls, which one protected this city. The only gate still intact is Black Freren Gate, found in the old city area on the High town Circuit. Leftovers of Talbot Tower can be viewed here as well and it is the bigger of the two remaining towers of the city walls.

Boasting a great cultural ambience, historic architecture, art galleries, workshops providing crafts and design, museums, theatres and more, the medieval city continues to attract visitors and is one of Ireland's most visited cities. The countryside surrounding Kilkenny is a great drive by car rental, offering amazing unspoiled scenery.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental?

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
