Interesting castle and gardens near Kilkenny

Visited here last August on the way to the Kilkenny Arts Festival and really enjoyed seeing the castle and gardens. Well worth a visit if you happen to be in that area.

I did the ghost tour and I was just blowing away but how freaky the set up was. I would highly recommend the tour.
