Butler House

Butler House also known as the Dower House of Kilkenny Castle, has always been associated with the Butler Family, Dukes & Earls of Ormonde who also built the irish castle, stables and coach houses at the rear, and resided at Kilkenny Castle for 500 years.

This ireland estate offers Sweeping staircases, magnificent plastered ceilings, marble fireplaces and a charming walled garden are all features of this notable Georgian residence.

Butler House was originally restored in the early 1970’s by Kilkenny Design who painstakingly restored the original architectural features and furnished this historic Ireland structure in a very unique and contemporary way. The influence of Kilkenny Design has always been one of the unique features of Butler House. The house has undergone a number of refurbishments since then, however the influence of the original Kilkenny Design Team is still visible throughout the house today.

The superb location of Butler House in the centre of historic Kilkenny City offers visitors the best of two worlds. Through the back door you will find Patrick Street, which leads to the commercial centre of the city where you can find shops, bars and restaurants. Through the front door you will find the internationally renowned Butler House Walled Garden. This charming Georgian garden was restored to its former glory in 1999 and boosts its own private entrance to the Castle yard and Kilkenny Castle. This is another unique feature of this wonderful house.
