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
