Business Support, Local Enterprise Office (LEO)

Business Support

If you are considering locating  your business in Kilkenny, dedicated staff operating as part of the Kilkenny Local Enterprise Office are available at a local level to help you tap into Council information on location, infrastructure, planning, environment, roads and enterprise landscape throughout city and county and guide you through council departments giving you a single point of contact throughout your location decision.


The Local Authorities have a strategic role in providing and maintaining a competitive business environment and ensuring that Kilkenny's ’ infrastructure continually evolves to maintain competitive advantage. The Council is particularly active in the Tourism sector, providing administrative support to Kilkenny Tourism and driving the promotion of Kilkenny locally, nationally and internationally.


The team works to promote the Invest Kilkenny brand and work with relevant stakeholders such as IDA Ireland, Enterprise Ireland, Kilkenny Chamber of Commerce and other bodies to achieve sustainable development for Kilkenny. Additionally, we work with the TSSG/Arclabs Team of WIT to establish, and presently expand, the hub for next generation internet development for companies in the finance, banking, and agribusiness sectors, acting as a catalyst for attracting multinational industries, high potential startups and entrepreneurs to the region
