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

One of them explained that the barmaid would be right back and asked where we are from. He seemed excited that we live near New ...
... Alana and Tom in Milton Keynes and it was as good if not better, not sure if it was because I wasn't feeling to good, but it was. Walking back to the hotel where I have decide to spend the rest of my time in Dublin, just to far to travel to Victorias and back each day. And I crashed out for the rest of the ...

We arrived in Kilkenny & found a lovely little cafe for lunch before grabbing some caches & checking in to our hotel.
After settling in we headed back out into the cold for some more caches & dinner. One of the caches brought us to an ...
... and bus it. The process is interesting as you can book and pay with the driver or buy tickets in the station. The bus network is pretty extensive and I've found fairly easy to navigate (so far). I dont plan on staying in Waterford, but continuing on to Cork and hopefully on to where I will spend the weekend (either Cashel of Ardmore). For clarity I have split up the different cities I have seen today in separate entries. See the rest of Kilkenny in the ...
