Inistioge (/ɪnɪʃˈtɡ/; Irish: Inis Tíog) is a small village in County Kilkenny, Ireland. It is situated on the River Nore, 25 kilometres (16 mi) southeast of Kilkenny. Historically, the name has been spelt as Ennistioge, Ennisteage, and in other ways.

Inistioge, and its village green, has been the scene for a number of films, including Circle of Friends, The Secret Scripture and Widows' Peak.[2] The Woodstock Estate is located one mile (1.6 km) outside the village. Inistioge is one of several villages that are situated along the River Nore not far from the city of Kilkenny, Ireland. The Town is entered by crossing a 10 arch stone bridge, includes a tree-lined square and rows of 18th and 19th century homes along the river.
