"Kilkenny" County Kilkenny by Deefstes

County Kilkenny Travel Guide: 416 reviews and 999 photos

Sorry, I don't really have much to show you on Kilkenny. My only visits there have been of a non-holiday nature (if that makes any sense to you).

Kilkenny has a nice castle that's worth seeing (probably the only big attraction in Kilkenny).

An interesting bit of trivia (and this could be apocryphal) is that Kilkenny is said to be the town with the biggest ratio of pubs per inhabitants in the world. I think there are something like 1 pub for every 10 citizens.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Close enough for a day trip from Dublin
  • Cons:Not as fantastic as you might expect

    Any info on the history of the castle? Because Kilkenny rings a bell...
