Kilkenny — 1 night

The country's smallest city in terms of population, Kilkenny boasts a rich cultural heritage and diverse tourist attractions that include well-preserved medieval architecture, exciting nightlife, a vibrant culinary scene, and abundant shopping opportunities.
Kick off your visit on the 23rd (Tue): step into the grandiose world of Ferns Castle, admire the sheer force of Kilfane Waterfall and Glen, and then pause for some photo ops at Kells Priory. Here are some ideas for day two: surround yourself with nature on Hawkeye School of Falconry, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Jerpoint Abbey, then contemplate the long history of Jerpoint Park, then take in the spiritual surroundings of St. Canice's Cathedral & Round Tower, and finally explore the historical opulence of Kilkenny Castle.

Plan my Kilkenny trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Emerald Isle
Gentle green hills, Guinness, leprechauns, and friendly folks characterize this small isle of a country. From the busy big city of Dublin to cozy countryside, the emerald isle harbors a varied natural landscape and is steeped in tradition. Visitors can immerse themselves in the native Irish language by visiting a Gaeltacht, or Irish-speaking region of the country, where traditional culture thrives. The Irish are known for being open and welcoming: from the moment you land to the moment you leave, you'll be greeted with "cead mile failte"--a hundred thousand welcomes.
