There are an estimated 300 retail outlets in Kilkenny City ranging from the large multiples to the exclusive. Many national and international retail names have a presence in the city, partially because of the large hinterland the city serves and its accessibility from other large centres of population. Many of the retail outlets are family owned businesses and a number of shops have been trading in the city for well over 100 years. Kilkenny limestone is a feature of many of the shop fronts.

Tourism and the fact that many craftspeople have made Kilkenny their home have contributed significantly to the existence of a large number of craft and gift shops.

Visitors and shoppers to the city can sample a wide variety of modern, traditional and specialist shops catering for all tastes and requirements in a relaxed and compact setting.

A large proportion of the workforce is employed in the retail sector. There are three very fine shopping centres in the city, Macdonagh Junction, Market Cross and Market Yard, all have extensive car parking facilities.
