The cessation of brewing on the 5.8 hectare St Francis Abbey site - and its public acquisition in 2013 to form the “Abbey Creative Quarter” - presents one of the most significant urban development opportunities to have occurred in Ireland.

This needs to be integrated with a real vision for Kilkenny and its hinterland to maintain and enhance its intrinsic qualities, strengthen the historic core and set international leadership in the future of historic European cities.
