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

We then took a walk to Black Abbey and St. ...

... aren't heavily motivated to stop and walk around anywhere along the way. Back in Birr, we find a second-level café above the main street shops, The Loft Café. Tea and bread & butter pudding sits well on a day like today. We get back in car and just drive east toward Kinnitty. We take a detour route for the Slieve Bloom Way, which I know takes us through part of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. I’m just ...
