About Kilkenny College of Beauty Therapy
Kilkenny College of Beauty Therapy first opened its doors in 1986 and is the longest established Beauty Therapy school in the South-East of Ireland. From the beginning our students have achieved high rates of success in examinations – 100% pass rates are not unusual with a high proportion of students each year achieving top grades.
Hundreds of our former students have gone on to start thriving businesses or forge successful careers, both in Ireland and abroad.
Many now own their own salons or manage spas and we are regularly contacted by former students keen to employ our latest graduates.

We are situated in the heart of the beautiful and historic city of Kilkenny in South East Ireland. Kilkenny has good road and rail links to all parts of Ireland and the college is within walking distance of every part of the City.
The college is spacious, bright and well equipped and provides an excellent learning environment. For students coming from other parts of Ireland or from overseas we are happy to assist with finding suitable local accommodation.
