LIFE AND LIVING IN KILKENNY
MacDonagh Junction is the modern city quarter in Kilkenny, combining high quality shopping, residential apartments, offices, community and leisure amenities. The city quarter has attracted top Irish and international retailers to Kilkenny City and helped to underpin Kilkenny as the premier destination in the South East for retail and leisure visitors.
Developed in a €250 million investment by MacDonagh Junction Development Company, MacDonagh Junction enjoys a primary location in the City on the East Bank of the River Nore. The development is located beside the city’s MacDonagh Railway Station, named after a signatory of the 1916 Proclamation of Independence, Tomás MacDonagh.
The heritage and tourist aspects of the restored workhouse buildings, the renovated railway buildings, the famine memorial garden and the Kilkenny time capsule, are unique to MacDonagh Junction, adding further to Kilkenny’s rich historical legacy.
With forty retail units combining shops, cafés and restaurants, leisure amenities and performance spaces, a unique heritage and a vibrant community, MacDonagh Junction offers visitors and shoppers alike an experience to enjoy and remember.
