Autumn in Kilkenny

A view of Kilkenny Castle from Wind Gap

A view of Kilkenny Castle from Wind Gap

I must confess, I’m really missing Ireland right now… and for some reason I’m especially thinking about Kilkenny. It’s one of my favorite towns. The storefronts have kept their traditional fronts, the web of streets reflect their medieval roots and the sites in town rank among Ireland’s best… the castle, the cathedrals, Rothe House, pubs, restaurants and so many more.

So, to all of you who are thinking about Ireland right now… you’re not alone.

  1. Oh Liam…I know exactly what you mean, and reading that heading has brought a pang of “homesickness” to me as well! This is the season that reminds me most of Ireland, because it’s my favorite time to travel there. I can just feel the moist coolness of the air, hear the rushing of the streams and the waterfalls, feel the mossy stones, see the green of the grass, the gold of the gorse, the grey of the ruins and the blues and pinks of the sky, and most of all, smell the sweet turf fires…ahhhhh! Now you’ve done it…I’ll be pining away all day :-)

  2. Hey Liam… I’m finally off to Ireland this week. I’ll be in Kilkenny Thur/Fri just over a week from now visiting family! Take care

  3. We spent only a few days in Kilkenny this past Spring. And I miss it! Very friendly town.

  4. I left kilkenny in 1982 aged 27, I am returning in 2 weeks to live there once again, I cannot wait
