Twinning is about finding the right partnership with the right town that you share common bonds with, whether historically, commercially, culturally, or geographical.
It involves the communities of these areas and invites them to engage and learn from one another. Twinnings can be great opportunities to learn, gain insight and grow from the partnership. They help develop and maintain connections and create strong friendships and bonds of solidarity.
Kilkenny is twinned with 4 towns and cities, from Europe and the US. The people of these communities are special to us and we wholeheartedly welcome them to our city for a visit. We especially welcome any community groups or organisations who would like to visit for or take part in our St. Patrick’s Festival that’s held in March every year. We also encourage the people of Kilkenny to visit their beautiful towns.
