Rothe House & Garden

Rothe House & Garden is an historic 17th century merchant's house in Kilkenny. Built between the late 16th and early 17th centuries, it is immersed in fertile local and national history and is a highlight of a visit to Kilkenny. Today it is cared for by the Kilkenny Archaeological Society and Rothe House Trust and is open to the public as a museum. Opened in 1966, the collection consists of 2,500 artefacts. The exhibits relate to the heritage of Kilkenny from prehistoric times. The garden is a reconstruction of the 17th century original.
