visiting in april

by VivianD

hi everyone! planning on visiting ireland week of april 18th...
just wondering how long i should stay in kilkenny? was planning on going to galway and further west for the countryside.... but i have a family friend in kilkenny who has a place that i could stay at.. so i figure it might be saving money that way and see medieval kilkenny instead??... but... just wondering if anyone had any tips or if i should head to the west coast? also, how will the weather be? would it be a good idea to rent bikes and bike around kilkenny and surrounding towns? THANKS!!!

Yes, 2 days is enough for Kilkenny town, it is not that big, but it is full of history (i love it). You can head down to Waterford city, Jerpoint abbey, Rock of Cashel, Wexford and do a general tour of the South East, a beautiful area I feel is frequently overlooked by foreign tourists. You would be half-way between Cork and Dublin if you want to explore that option.

As far as I know you cannot get a direct bus from Kilkenny to Galway, I reckon you would probably have to change buses in Limerick city.

Just to expand a bit on Orlkins' point about the south east, I would certainly reccommend visiting Waterford and Tramore for a day each. Tramore especially so: a seaside resort and as such, is often associated with a certain kind of...unsophisticated (well what other word is there??!) tourism but is has retained much of it's original Victorian "watering-hole" charm.

Up the Deise,

John

Tramore? Glad I saw your tip this morning/maybe I'll stop there, too. Do you recommend any Travel Pages I could visit on Tramore?

RE: RE: visiting in april

by Moloney

I'm not aware of any travel pages on Tramore. If you have any specific questions I'd be glad to help. Providing I'm able to, that is! You could do worse than to visit Tramore - it's really not the worst spot on the planet, I've heard of places in Siberia which are supposed to be worse.

You make me laugh. I like your humor. I'm traveling on a very lim budget. Are there good, cheap lodgings?

Here's one in Tramore:

You might be better off staying in Waterford tho, as it's only 7 miles from Tramore with a regular bus service to boot.

Here's a couple of Waterford city Hostels:

Waterford Hostel: 70 Manor Street,Waterford City, +353 51 850163

Viking House, Coffee House Lane, Greyfriars, The Quay, Waterford, +353 51 853827

Best of luck

Travel Tips for Kilkenny

Kikenny Castle--beautifully illuminated at night!

by wadekorzan

When staying in Kilkenny, be sure to walk to the bridge over the small tiver in the center of the town to see the castle illuminated at night. It is beautiful. Kilkenny Castle dates back about 800 years and was inhabited by the Butler family from 1391 until 1935. The castle can be visited in the dayime. Especially nice to see during the 40 minute tour is the "Long Gallery" with its beautiful ceiling with portraits of the Butler Family. The castle also houses the so-called "Butler Gallery, 1 of the most important art galleries in Ireland outside of Dublin.

Hurling

by barryg23

Have I yet mentioned hurling? Kilkenny is Ireland's top hurling county and the sport is very popular here. Conversely, Kilkenny has the worst Gaelic Football team in the country and doesn't even enter the All-Ireland. It is said that our hurlers could beat the footballers at football.

Blessed Edmund Ignatius...

by jonno99

Blessed Edmund Ignatius (1762)-(1844) was founder of the religious teaching order the Irish Christian Brothers. He devoted His life to looking after and educating young boys of a persecuted and exploited nation in the early 1800's. The old thatched farm house is lovingly preserved and furnished in the style of that period by the brothers themselves. Also beside his house in Westcourt, 1 mile from Callan, you can visit the Memorial Chapel which houses the Icon which forms a tabloid of his life

Jenkinstown Wood

by barryg23

Jenkinstown Wood is a small woodland park about 10 km outside Kilkenny city. It's a nice place for walking or for a picnic and very popular with the local people.

My mother grew up in nearby Jenkinstown and I have cousins who still live in the area so it's a place I have visited many times. My parents were married in the old Jenkinstown church (see picture) in 1977.

Pub Crawling

by orlikins about Marble City, Carrigans, etc

Ended up in the Marble City Bar for starters, then on to Carrigans, which has got to be the smallest and claustrophobic pub in all of Kilkenny, completely MAD with Kilkenny's Fine Young Things.
