“Scenic/ Historic Walking Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

We went to an information centre to pick up a Historic Walking Tour for $ 7.00 euro’s each. The tour guide was quite knowledgeable and gave us a better understanding of the butter slip. He was also very helpful for any of the questions asked about Kilkenny. I would definitely recommend a walking tour as it gives you a better appreciation of where you are and the history of the town.

“Yup, it's a street.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2013 via mobile

Cute street, a few neat little shops. But it's not a must see. If you are out for a walk in Kilkenny taking in the sights then you may enjoy wandering down it. But don't go out of your way to find it. It's just a street with some shops.

This is an alley nothing more. I walked through it by accident on the way back from the pub it's not in any way an attraction.

“Nice small street with a few shops”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Take a pleasant stroll through the Butter slip. Short passageway but takes you back in time to the medieval days.

“Nice way, small street”

The butterslip is a small passageway from one street to another. Throws you back into the Middle Ages, love walking there
