Ireland’s Medieval City of Kilkenny and its Castle


Kilkenny’s rich medieval heritage is evident in the city’s treasure trove of historical buildings and landmarks, especially the magnificent Kilkenny Castle.  Kilkenny is Ireland’s most beautiful medieval city.  My day trip from Dublin through Collins Day Tours included this majestic city.  I walked around the castle looking for a variety of perspectives.

I think I should have been an architect.  I love looking down lanes with the lines of the buildings converging.

Time for a glass of wine after all of that walking!  Don’t worry I tried the Irish beer also!
