Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We parked not far from here and so it was one of the first things we saw in the city. It's a lovely alley and surely looks interesting! But, when you have slippery shoes, walk through there carefully as well... it's slippery.

I have no idea what the butter slip is, but if it's in Kilkenny then we probably did it! Kilkenny is a wonderful town where there is tons to see, lots of places/history to absorb and a great place to let your imagination run wild! We loved this town and it's friendliness and charm. Everyone is friendly and you can walk the whole place in a day. I think we walked it several times! For us, it's not a "several day" trip, but it is a definite "must do"! We were here right before the hurling final and were cheering for Kilkenny because of the town and the people! Put this on your list!

It's a small entry off the street and quite narrow in the old part of the city. Thankfully it is in a touristy part so lots if people will see it and get a feeling of what life in medieval times might have been like.

If walking around Kilkenny's main streets then I would recommend cutting across Butter Slip. It's a narrow and not very long but unique.

This is the heart of old town of Kilkenny. Very narrow street lined up with tourist shops. Interesting to visit.

The town + Medieval Mile + castle grounds are all great for walking. We did a short guided walking tour and learned lots of history.

At the centre of the Medieval Mile and lying between two of the main streets therein, it was grand walking along it. And it doesn’t take very long.

Ascending the steps and strolling through the archway, it was almost possible to stretch out and touch the walls on each side.

An atmospheric and evocative amble.
