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

At Enniskerry we turned west and followed the signs ...

For our first stop we are to visit Kells Priory. Kells Priory is one of the largest and most impressive medieval monuments in Ireland. The Augustine priory is situated alongside King's River beside the village of Kells, about 15 km south of the medieval city of Kilkenny. A very impressive site. We spend a good deal of time here and have a chat to the caretaker who told Rod that ...
... isolated. From the pub visited a cathedral where we scaled a huge tower (see pics) then a castle but was no where as good as others as most rooms were closed, who paints the walls of a castle blue and red!! They wrecked it. BTW no accidents this time Liz :) (there was a slight accident in Warwick castle where Lizs other half broke a vase and sent fruit flying) So thinking we might come home with a tan with the great weather and Liz messaged from ...
