We were looking for a castle that still held most of its authentic nature and this was the one. Clean and restored back to its original charm. Rooms make you go WOW when you enter. Worth the trip plus a great little town!! Good pastries in the kitchen as well!!

Kilkenny Castle is a gorgeous relic of a time long past. It is well worth taking the tour of the castle itself, but don't forget to wander the grounds (for free!) and enjoy the outdoors.

We drove past the castle, which was very nice from the outside. It was also incredibly crowded. If you are looking to do something that everyone else is doing, it's probably worth it. If you are looking for something a little quieter try getting there first thing in the morning or skip it.

There were renovations going on so we missed out on some areas. The guided tour was interesting & the moorish staircase is beautiful.
