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.

During this time a small Canadian girl pokes her head out, and we invite her to come along. It's a small pub, where ...
... is a beautifully restored castle right in the heart of town. It was very impressive inside and out and The grounds were immaculate. It really showed off the splendor in which some people lived. We then walked over to the Smithwick's (pronounced "Smiddicks") Brewery which was founded in 1710. Kilkenny is a small town, so it was about 5 minute walk. The tour was very interesting and actually a bit more informative than the Guinness tour. Of course, it ...
... delicious, rice pudding creme brulee. If I could get rice pudding creme brulee at home I would be in heaven. I could never give up my beloved cheesecake, but that dessert was something fabulous. There was even a little side street named Pudding Lane that we walked by, how charming.
Tomorrow we are off to our first and final destination city, Dublin. Here's to the Guinness that I will soon be drinking!
