About Shee Almshouse

Shee Almshouse is located at Rose Inn Street in Kilkenny, Co. Kilkenny.

Built 1582, this is one of the last almshouses in the country dating to the Tudor period. It was established by Sir Richard Shee (c.1550-1608). It has had many uses over the centuries: as Catholic Chapel pre-1800, a hospital 1837 and as a store 1912-1972. It was restored sympathetically in 1981 and now serves as the Kilkenny City Tourist Office.
