A new development in the heart of the medieval city of Kilkenny. The Abbey Quarter is situated on the site of the old Smithwicks Brewery where the ancient St. Francis Abbey is located.

The identity takes its inspiration from the distinctive arched windows of the remaining Abbey ruins to form the symbol with a strong palette of yellow, black and grey, associated Kilkenny colours of black and amber.


To appeal to a more technical business audience, the line LIV. WRK. NJOY KLKNY. is devised, coming from abbreviated language most associated with texting and code.
