... another one, which the Canadians recommended. Apparently they went the night before and anyone is invited to play music, no matter what your skill level is. Unfortunately on this night that wasn't the case, but we still had a great time. The place is called Hole in the Wall, and the name says it all. It has been around since 1582, and claims to be the smallest oldest bar in Ireland. Inside is a handful of people...the 'bartender' (who doubled as a ...

Kilkenny was great! We met some really fun people at our hostel. Three Swedes, five Germans, two Belgians, an American, an Italian, some Croatians, four French people, and a Spanish woman.
