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 the top of a climb up a slippery and steep dark staircase, we found the Blarney Stone. The custom of kissing the ...
... attire and riding on their horses. I am well aware that this is a silly notion, but that is the Ireland I dreamed of finding when I came abroad.
I am very happy to say that, apart from the sheep, horses and people dressed in medieval attire, I have found that Ireland in Kilkenny. The drive to the city of Kilkenny was a very scenic one with plenty of farmlands, narrow roads, small towns, trees, mountains and lakes. Once I got off the Bus ...
... becoming a big success here. They have their own therapy building, community hall, bakery, classrooms, outdoor performance space, vegetable gardens, biomass boiler and houses for up to six children in each. After the visit, we went back to the co-op and had an early lunch while listening to four or five others do their pechu kichu talks. All extremely interesting as they were yesterday as well, so nice to hear what ...
