About Your Trip:
Set along the River Nore in southeastern Ireland, Kilkenny has been around since the 6th century. It’s renowned for its historical sites, which include the 12th-century Kilkenny Castle, the medieval city walls and St. Canice’s Cathedral. Alongside all that centuries-spanning history, the city has a very vibrant cultural life with numerous arts and music festivals studding the yearly calendar.
Your Kilkenny journey will explore both time and space, courtesy of an immensely entertaining guided walking tour of its venerable landmarks. While viewing the marvelously preserved medieval architecture, you’ll hear dramatic, even grisly stories about the old town and its residents—including tales of murderous witches, graveyard pigs and the Black Death—all told with a healthy dose of wit and good cheer.
