Ran in to a shop and parked in the front and got clamped at 10 minutes costing €120. Ludicrous. Shops inside are worth visiting but parking company outside put me off the shopping centre completely.More

If you visit Kilkenny by car you'll find this to be a good shopping center, with your bog standard retail stores. But it is a great place to park before heading into town on foot.
