Visit the Grace’s Courthouse

A building now used as a courthouse.

The origins of Grace’s Courthouse date back to 1210 and was located in the historic centre of Kilkenny, where it was converted into a prison in 1568, before being used as a courthouse in 1792.

Renovated in 1828, the site was later enlarged and equipped with new courtrooms and courthouses.

Since then, it has been the place where most local judgements are handed down. Please note that you will be able to enter the Grace’s Courthouse free of charge. Please note, however, that access to most rooms is restricted to lawyers, judges and court members.
