How to get from Cashel to Kilkenny without a car

by Lilofee

I read somewhere that there is a bus from Cashel to Kilkenny, but I can't find any information regarding how many busses per day and at what time they run. Please, can anyone give me info? I have tried Buseireann, but cannot find it any which way. Thank yo so much.

That's the Bus Eirann journey planner and no, there isn't a bus.

Perhaps there was once, perhaps rutes have changed (Cashel is served only by buses to Cork, Athlone and Dublin) or perhaps you have been misinformed. lists Cashel bus services.

You can get a bus into Dublin from Cashel, and then get a bus to Kilkenny from there. The journeyplanner in the post above will give you details.

Kilkenny (Patrick street) – Clonmel (railway station depart 14.35 arrive 15.25
Then take the Cahir bus from Clonmel at 15.45, and arrive in Cahir (Castle Street) at 16.10 and at 16.40 get the bus to Cashel. You should arrive in Cashel at 16.55. I know you have to take a lot of buses but this is the quickest way, taking 2hrs 20mins.

Travel Tips for Kilkenny

Kilkenny is the REAL Ireland...

by PercyPercy

If I were to take someone to Kilkenny City for the first time, I would have them sleep until mid-afternoon... and then go for a long walk to the downtown district, John Street, Parliament Street, Patrick Street, Black Mill Street. Visit the pubs... and talk... and laugh... and talk... oh yes, and have a few pints along the way. Kilkenny is a place where you can immerse yourself in the Irish culture -- removed from Irish trinkets made in China and pubs designed to make Americans feel at home. This is the real Ireland if you choose it to be so. And don't forget the "chippy" at 2 am. And if you get lost, and can't find your B&B at 3 in the morning, that's okay. Some lovely Kilkenny resident will direct you safely home... The people of Kilkenny, young and old, are the finest in the world. You are alone only as much as you choose to be. Enter a pub on your own, sit at the bar, and say hello... within moments you'll be drawn into conversations on history, politics, hurling, football (the real kind), and the general craic about the town. You'll leave at closing time with a host of new friends and memories to last a lifetime.

This is the river Nore as seen from the Castle Park. The bridge in the picture is John's Bridge, which links Rose Inn Street to John Street. In the background you can see the brewery - where all the famous Smithwicks and Kilkenny beer is made.

championship hurling county


this is one of the major championship hurling counties in ireland, for those who don't know what sport this is, it is the fastest land game in the world, played with a stick called a hurley this is traditionally made from ash timber. the ball is small and made from leather, this is called a Sliotar.
the female version of the game is more or less the same and is called Camogie, there is a version played in Scotland aswell called Shinty.
hurling is a great game very fast and very skilled. the equipment can be purchased in major sports retailers in ireland and realitively inexpensive.

Not the prettiest area in town!

by barryg23

........but it was always a shortcut for me getting home. Known as the canal walk, this runs from John Street up to Greens Bridge. It used to be (and perhaps still is) an area for underage drinking - i.e 13 & 14 years olds drinking flagons of cider.

Knacker Haven

by caribou_ire about Club51

Club 51 is attached to the 'super pub' O'Faoilans. It has recently been revovated and now it has the appearence of something you'd see in a James Bond movie. The laether furniture and furry walls, however beautiful cannot hide the fact that the place is swarming with people looking for trouble. Perhaps the owner thought by doing the place up, he would distract people's attention from the ever existant fight going on, or the unconscious drunk in the corner puking all over himself. He was wrong. Fun can be had there, yet a certain degree of caution must be had. Although this can be said about any nightclub in the country, Club51 seems to me to have that extra edge. Exciting for some, not for me. not the most strict place around. shoes would help.
