About this event

Step back in time and enjoy the enchanting Christmas Garden and festive fare at the wonderful walled garden of Butler House. Kids will love the toy soldiers, reindeer, and the Butler House miniature Express Train. The Christmas Garden is transformed as dusk approaches.

Take an “Elfie” with friends in Santa’s sleigh and follow the Glittering lights as they lead you to the Christmas Post Office where Santa has left a magic post box. Mrs Claus has been busy getting Santa’s undies washed and out to dry. Can you spot them hanging in the garden?

Our community always shines bright together. This year there will be a return of the LOVE installation in association with One Million Stars, in the Castle yard. You can weave a star at home and bring it along to be hung. The display of the beautiful Christmas wreaths created by an array of local community groups will be a standout feature again this year. Kilkenny & Carlow ETB will surprise all visitors with exciting installations throughout the garden.

Come visit this unique destination in our secluded walled garden, enjoy festive fare, music and soak up a magical Christmas atmosphere in the heart of Kilkenny. Savour mouth-watering festive treats at The Butler Garden Orangerie.

Butler House Garden Opening Hours: Saturday & Sunday 12 p.m. – 6 p.m.
