So I'll pick up from there...
The Masiwife overlooking the river Nore that runs through the middle of the city (which, by the way, is packed full of trout- you see them all over the place in the river... [Anne- talking to you]).
Yep, me at the same spot on the river... it was really pretty, jeesh...
Kilkenny castle- just a block away from where we stayed in the town.
It's a pretty impressive site, with a massive (as in "as far as the eye can see" lawn). It was built in the 1100's (that's 300+ years before the Americas were "discovered").
The Masiwife says it is "her" castle and licked the doorknob to claim it... so don't even try and take it.
This is the back of the Butler House, where we stayed. That's the Masiwife soaking in more Irish "sunshine" (that's light rain to you and me).
Ireland was beautiful. Kilkenny was amazing, the people very friendly and the scenery amazing. If you are on the fence about visiting Ireland, get off the fence and go!
