Transporation Help! Kilkenny to Dingle

by jenjuhn

Hi, my friend and I plan to travel from Kilkenny to Dingle. We will NOT be renting a car. We will stay 1 night in Kilkenny and next morning go to Rock of Cashel and then onto Dingle. I am hoping there is a bus that goes to Rock of Cashel from Kilkenny. However, I don't know if we should return to Kilkenny to take a train to Tralee, or maybe Killarney? And then bus into Dingle from either of these two cities? Or, is there a bus from Cashel into Dingle?

Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

That should show you a map of Irish Rail

Combine that with the bus info from other VT member.

Sometimes you need to combine bus and rail...there used to be a combined pass.

Be care full with times if you have a deadline. You can be held up longer than you expect. might help Marg

Travel Tips for Kilkenny

Towers and Crenellation

by grandmaR

Forty years before our visit (short in the total timespan of the life of the castle), Arthur Butler, 6th Marquess and 24th Earl of Ormonde, sold his abandoned and deteriorating castle to the Castle Restoration Committee for £50. At that time, he said, "The people of Kilkenny, as well as myself and my family, feel a great pride in the Castle, and [we feel that]... it should not be allowed to fall into ruins. There are already too many ruins in Ireland."

He purchased the land in front of the castle "in order that it should never be built on and the castle would be seen in all its dignity and splendour". My grandson was very impressed by the castles in Ireland - so much so that he was disappointed when he saw Buckingham Palace.

Smithwick's Brewery

by dubrovnik

Smithwick's Brewery (Smithwicks
(St. Francis' Abbey) Brewery is situated in the heart of Kilkenny. Brewing was instigated in the city by the monks of the Franciscan Abbey who brewed their beers using the waters from the Friars Well. The Abbey closed in the 16th century and in 1710 John Smithwick started brewing commercially. The Brewery is today part of Guinness Group Ireland, brewing 1.2 million hectolitres of, principally, Budweiser and Kilkenny Irish Beer for domestic and export markets as far away as Hong Kong, Singapore, China, Japan and New Zealand).

Packing List

by Globies

Make sure to pack good walking shoes en warm clothing. Also pack clothing to protect you from rain.
Tip: if you are at a spot you want to visit of make pictures at and it is raining: wait for 5 or ten minutes for the rain to stop. Especially on windy days the weather changes from minute to minute. At least, that's what we experienced...

If you have a day free I would recommend you go to an place called Inch.It's about a 40 minute drive west of Killarney but the most spectacular beach in Ireland.It won this title on numerous occassions.I have practically spent my childhood here.My mother is from this area and all her family still lives here.Go to my travelogue for more on this area.

Kilkenny Pubs

by dubrovnik

The Pumphouse is one of those pubs which really caters to an audience.On any one day you can experience a total mishmash of characters from all walks of life.This gives rise to a diverse feel to the pub but always guarantees an atmosphere. Frequented by a youthful crowd this pub has almost become a cult classic in Kilkenny. Dimly lit with wooden finish it has comfortable seating and a reputation for great music.If your looking to escape from the norm or just curious this is always a good pub to try.

The standard of service is great with few flaws.The staff are friendly and accommodating. The Pumphouse also has a pool table and dart board. A sample lunch menu can be seen below.

Soup & Homemade brown bread, Sandwiches, toasted sandwiches and Baguettes.
Baked Potatoes with assorted fillings.
Pies: Chicken, mushroom and salad, Lasagne with salad, Shepherd pie with salad, ploughmans platter.
Speciality Irish stew.

Traditional Music from May to September. Sessions on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays.
