Trust us: Enjoy trinity of beauty

Butler House: A magnificent Georgion Mansion

SAVOUR Kilkenny has brought some of Ireland’s finest food producers, chefs and epicureans here to enjoy a weekend of culinary delight and innovation.

This year, Kilkenny Civic Trust welcomes festival goers to three novel events.

From noon to 5pm on October 28, our Medieval Mile Museum will invite the public to step back in time.

Craftspeople demonstrate medieval skills including cooking, leatherwork, coin striking, weaving, arrow making and fletching, the stabilization of arrows and darts with feathers.
This event is free to the public and booking is not necessary.

At 5.30pm on Saturday, Executive Chef at Butler House, Ger Dunne, will present a demo in culinary skills at the Marble City Stage.

Ger is renowned for his respect of local seasonal food and evolving style which creates dishes full of flavour, underpinned by a contemporary, less formal approach to fine cuisine. Again, admission is free.

Meanwhile, on Sunday at 3pm, Butler House will host Sounds of the Afternoon Sea.
Conceptualised by Ger Dunne, this dining experience will feature a selection of the finest and most delicious seafood savouries – crabmeat with toasted brioche, lobster with caviar, mini bloody Mary prawn cocktails, Harty Oysters and Irish smoked salmon on Guinness bread – combined with classic sweet pastries.

“It’s a huge privilege for us to be involved with a superb Savour Kilkenny programme,” said Kilkenny Civic Trust CEO, Ciaran Conroy.

“We hope all those coming to the festival take the opportunity to visit the events at Kilkenny Civic Trust properties.

“Our doors are open to everyone at Butler House and the Medieval Mile Museum and we’d like to wish Savour the best of with their enormously successful event.”
