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

The Knight has his legs crossed (possibly signifying that he had been on the Crusades), and wears a fine suit of chain mail, spurs and is accompanied ...
... would you imagine that!
We’ve had a couple of gorgeous days. I say that when wind is lashing at my window. Man, Limerick’s winds give SoCal’s Santa Anas a run for their money. I had to run errands today and my feet barely touched the ground. I flew from place to place, holding my head onto my shoulders so that it wouldn’t fly away. But yeah, back to the nice days. On one of these days I was busily working away in ...
