Rare opportunity to acquire a sizeable landmark site in Kilkenny city

Kilkenny is one of Ireland’s most historic and vibrant cities, resulting in it being a top tourist destination. MacDonagh Junction railway station and the M9 motorway nearby mean the location is highly accessible to Dublin City and the rest of the country by both rail and road.

The site is located within approx. 300m of the Abbey Quarter via Wolfe Tone Street, just a short stroll from Kilkenny City Centre and all of its amenities, including shops, bars, cafes and restaurants, and approximately 9km to the M9, the site benefits from rapid motorway access to all of the main arterial routes leading to Dublin and to the rest of Ireland.

There are four large corporate employers in the city – Glanbia, VHI, Taxback and State Street – and ongoing plans to develop the old Smithwick’s Brewery site (Abbey Quarter) are targeted to attract more office-based corporate development into the city centre. There are also plans for a significant hotel development within 300m of the site.

The lands extend to approximately 8.57ac (3.47 ha) and has the benefit of approximately 530 meters of road frontage onto New Road, Castlecomer New Road and Old Mart Road. Kilkenny County Council have recently completed the new Central Access Road & Bridge over the River Nore. The subject site rests on the North side of the new access road. A 12 Screen Cinema has also since been developed on the other side of this road.
