      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

      We had a crazy packed day today and we just got back to the hotel to drop our car off and catch a taxi back into town. Turns out, Wednesday night is the main music night of the week with traditional local music in all of the pubs! So, we're taxiing it to the pubs so we can drink and listen to music all night. I'll write more later, so for now, here are some highlighted pics from the day. AWESOME DAY! More to ...

So, most of the turrets are gone and in place of them is a 17th century home/palace that is fit for a king and used to be a rich guy's home until 1935. The government owns it now and is spending millions of €€€ to restore it to mid-1800s elegance.

      I had a gut feeling that this was our day... and it was.

      This book, like others of its kind, is a library in a book, containing various selections of wisdom and knowledge that a wealthy, learned Irish family of the late fourteenth century would pay to have scribed into a single volume. There are eleven sections in the Book of Ballymote and one of those sections is ...
