An Irishman, American, and Aussie set off for 3 days behind the wheel on the rugged roads of Ireland...
1200 km (800 miles), 15 counties, and about 200 pints later... we made it back to Belfast! From Antrim to Kerry and Dublin to Clare- we made good use of our 3 days.

I picked up a Celtic ring for myself and a little something to put in with a Christmas card to a friend this year.

TravelPod Member ReviewsMetropole hotel Kilkenny
The Metropole pub and hostel was a fantastic accommodation in the heart of Kilkenny! An easy walk to St Canice's, just across from Ireland's oldest Brewery Smithwicks, and easy reach to the dozens of pubs and restaurants that make Kilkenny so amazing! Clean and charming. Fantastic session, great fellow travelers, great staff, great time! Go there! :D
