Weekend in Kilkenny

It was a weekend filled with castles, cathedrals, and abbeys. We traveled two hours to Kilkenny County, where we stayed overnight in a hotel. Our trip included six sites, all of which had deep historical meaning, and of course were beautiful places to see!

The Rock of Cashel

Hore Abbey (often humorously mistaken as whore abbey)

Cahir Castle

St. Canice Cathedral

Kilkenny Castle

Jerpoint Abbey

We had a lovely time exploring Kilkenny, and we were happy to have a night out at one of the pubs for a delicious Irish meal and dessert.
