About Us

The Wine Centre is a specialist off licence based in the heart of Kilkenny city, in the South East of Ireland. We first opened our doors in 1965 and have been renowned for our dedication to customer service and excellence in product selection ever since. We provide personalised, specialist advice and expertise to customers, whatever the budget.

One of the key differences between The Wine Centre and other off licences and supermarkets, is the depth of knowledge of our staff and the exclusive range of wines, beers, spirits and whiskeys we stock.


We boast an extensive collection of both new and old world wines and over 300 craft beers which are available in-store and online. Our recently opened in-store ‘Whiskey Wall’ carries over 120 whiskeys, including a selection of rare bottles, all of which are available to purchase. We also carry an extensive range of gins from Ireland and abroad.

The Wine Centre is a proud member of the Kilkenny Whiskey Guild and we carry the largest selection of Irish Whiskeys available in the South East of Ireland, with 90 different varieties available. Regular public tasting events are held in-store while private tastings can also be arranged. Details of these events are posted on our facebook page and communicated to our database.

The Wine Centre is a multi award winning store, having won NOFFLA’s (National Off Licence of the Year) Leinster division for the past 7 years running (2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 & 2019).

A warm welcome awaits you in-store or we very much welcome you purchasing from us online.
