      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

It became a well known religious centre until 1647 when a Cromwellian army massacred it's 3000 occupants! The cathedral is now falling into ruin and preservation of the site is ...

      ... beautiful gardens of Butler House. We toured the castle itself and its grounds. It has so much history. The Butler family lived there for 600 years and saw many years of both prosperity and hard times before they finally moved out in 1935. The restoration of the castle is very interesting and the grounds are very impressive.

      We had dinner at Eammon Langton's. It was very nice and they had some trad music with a duo on guitar and ...

      Wow! We're we tired. We fell asleep at 7:30 last night and woke up at 11:15 this morning. So much for my plan to get up early and see Kilkenny. We didn't get out of our room until about noon, which put us back about three hours, but, admittedly, I do feel rested. We walked down to the Kilkenny Castle, which used to protect the area from invaders, cattle rustlers, and common thieves. The castle has an enormous park that unrolls along a sleepy river. The grounds ...
