Basic room at reasonable rate right in the heart of old downtown. The room was well lite, clean, and just what most people on a budget look for. Coming from drought stricken California I had to laugh at the toilets which seems to use about 12 gallon for every flush! Great breakfast! We had the Irish breakfast with Waterford bacon, Roscrea sausage, egg, grilled tomato, mushrooms, and black pudding, set in great room with deer heads and hunting pictures. The building is over 200 hundred years old and it was quite a long walk back to our room up and down stairs through various doors, it was almost comical (woman's view - I found it charming). We have thank Rick Steves for the recommendation.

... is brewed by a German company and not in Ireland! When they bought Guinness they tried to buy the #2 Irish beer smithwicks but smithwicks wouldn't sell. So the Germans decided to brew a beer called Kilkenny after a very well-visited Irish town to compete for a share o the Irish ale market. They have a beautiful castle in Kilkenny with lovely gardens around. We also saw the medieval ...
... a taste and reckon the pint is not too far away!!). Had a wander around the streets but it gets dark so darned early that we will need to go for another wander tomorrow before we set off for Tullamore where we are booked for 3 nights. Hope to be able to access the canals from there. Back to the pub for dinner and a session of Irish music. The musician there gave us a copy of his CD. Will have to wait until tomorrow before we can play it. Hope it is as good as the music tonight. ...
... is studying a sub section of Anthropology called material culture. All talks were interesting but were looking at how buildings or possessions created a feeling of home but none mentioned people, you know the whole 'home is where the heart is' which was perhaps more interesting than the talks themselves, that no one mentioned home in the context of people. Fantastic, interesting talk, and of course followed by a nightcap in the local. Haha. When in ...
