Rothe House and Garden

Rothe House is Ireland's only remaining example of a 17th century merchant’s townhouse.

  • This charming Tudor style dwelling was built between 1594 and 1610 by John Rothe, former mayor of Kilkenny
  • Roth House is open to the public as a museum, housing a collection of costumes, artefacts from the Bronze Age and other relics
  • It is home to the Kilkenny Genealogical society and contains a facility dedicated to local genealogical research

Garden

The Rothe House Garden, divided into two sections, aims to recreate an urban garden of the early 17th century.

  • The walled section contains herbs and vegetables such as Deer Tongue lettuce.
  • The charming orchard area has apple varieties such as Scarlet Crofton  Blood of the Boyne.

The garden was opened by President of Ireland Mary McAleese on April 11, 2008.
