Would we be able to stay in Kilkenny and not return to Dublin?
Dear L F
Thanks for your inquiry ! No problem to stay in Kilkenny. You can still join the tour guide for the walking tour in Kilkenny. Please let the guide know you are staying so we don't send a search party for you! :)
What I understood from our guide there is no issue to stay in Kilkenny. You can always return by train, next day or wherever you wish.
I have no idea if they allow that--I think you'd have to call the tour company and ask them if you can return to Dublin with the next tour group that comes through Kilkenney the next day.
It will probably also depend if they have open seats available on the bus the next day. The bus I was on was completely full.
...But give them a call--the tour operators were very friendly and helpful.
