Kilkenny is bordered to the south and west by Jefferson, to the west by Lancaster, to the north by Stark, and to the east by Berlin and Milan The West Branch of the Upper Ammonoosuc River originates on the eastern slope of the Pilot Range

According to the United States Census Bureau, the township has a total area of 256 square miles 663 km2, of which 004% is water1


The town was granted to Jonathan Warner and others on June 4, 1774 In 1840 it contained 19 inhabitants, in 1856, 19, and an area of 15,906 acres 6437 km2, having a value of $20,000 1874 New Hampshire Gazetteer

Kilkenny Township once included a large portion of what is now the eastern edge of Jefferson, tapering south into the area of Jefferson Notch at the foot of Mount Mitten This included much of the area known as "Jefferson Highland" on the Portland Road US-2 By the 1870s, maps were showing the southern edge of Kilkenny as a line extending the northern border of Jefferson and Lancaster 1872 Railroad and Post Office Map of New Hampshire, and 1892 map of Jefferson The 1896 topographic map, however, shows that the boundary had again been adjusted several miles south, to include Mount Waumbek and Pliny Mountain, uninhabited areas Deeds in this area often refer to the "Kilkenny Addition"

On the 1935 topographic map, the "Upper Ammonoosuc Trail" crossed Kilkenny along Priscilla Brook and through the pass from the Keenan Brook area of Randolph, north of Pliny Mountain This trail has since been abandoned, although a 2002 atlas of New Hampshire shows a "Priscilla Brook Trail" in the same location

The Willard Bowl north of Mount Waumbek, drained by Garland Brook, was considered as a site for development of a ski area in 1971, when it was owned by former governor Hugh Gregg On the 1896 topographic map there was a B&M railroad spur up much of Garland Brook, to an elevation of 2,100 feet 640 m By 1935 the tracks were gone
