    A sleepy little town, a couple hours by train outside of Dublin, Kilkenny is probably most well-known for it's Castle and the Smithwicks Abbey brewery.

    I know I said "sleepy", but compared to the surrounding towns, Kilkenny actually has quite an active pedestrian walking/shopping/nightlife area. Stroll along the cobblestone streets and duck into really any bar or restaurant. Everything I tried was pretty good. You'll find mostly locals in the bars with plenty of folk singing, drinking, and rowdy fun.

    I passed through Kilkenny on a bike tour and really enjoyed the city while I was there.
