Kilkenny was a much smaller town, especially after just coming from Dublin. While there were not a ton of must-sees here, it was a good little stop along our route around the entire country.
After we got into town from Dublin, we walked around and saw the sights in just a few hours. Then we stopped at a few different pubs for some Guinness and typical Irish Pub Food. Being a small town with only a few sights, we left first thing in the morning to our next stops: Cashel & Cahir (upon recommendation from the Butler Court owner), and onto Kinsale for the night.
Where to Stay in Kilkenny: Butler Court Guest House - a great Bed and Breakfast, very nice room and bathroom, right in the center of town, with a VERY friendly owner who offers lots of travel advice, and a cute little dog roaming around to greet you!
What to See in Kilkenny: Smithwick's Brewery, Kilkenny Castle, the Cathedral
