    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

Lovely and secluded ...

There is an electronic sign at the stop and it is about 10 minutes until the bus is supposed to arrive. A mother and son arrive but they are not going to the airport but taking a bus to their hometown. The AirLink bus finally arrives and we wave it down, but it is full! Ugh. The next ...

    ... and kneeling on a floor where the remains of another person are resting two feet below. I asked one of the curators about the tombs, and felt very stupid to have been jumping from spot to spot because apparently there was a man named Oliver Cromwell, who wanted to extinguish Catholicism in Ireland, so he opened all the tombs and threw the remains of all the people buried in them to the common streets.

    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 ...
