Kilkenny Photos

We spent a full day in Kilkenny, taking a walking tour, then visiting the castle and a round tower. That night we went to a few pubs.

After Kilkenny we took a bus back to Ennis, spent the night, and got on a plane back to America the next morning.

Sue and I in front of the castle. Most castles are square; this one is U-shaped because Cromwell knocked down one of the walls, and afterwards it was never replaced.

Climbing the tower. Stairs have been added, originally you had to use ladders.

Pigeons roost in the windows of the tower. They seem pretty used to people climbing.

That night we had dinner in Kytler's, a building that had been a pub or restaurant, on and off, since the 14th century
