Rothe House ...



Rothe House & Garden, a historic house in Kilkenny, is the only example of an early 17th century merchantís townhouse in Ireland. It is an important element of Kilkennyís heritage. Rothe House is the centre for Irish genealogy in Kilkenny city and county, and you can research your Kilkenny family history with us. Built between 1594 and 1610, Rothe House is steeped in rich local and national history and a visit is high on the list of things to do in Kilkenny. The House and Garden are owned by the Kilkenny Archaeological Society, and is open to the public as a Museum, displaying some of the 2,500 historic artefacts collected by the Society since its founding in 1947. These artefacts all relate to Kilkenny heritage throughout the ages and some date from pre-historic times. The Garden, newly opened in 2008, is a reconstruction of an early 17th century urban garden, and has become a very popular garden to visit in Ireland.
