Flight to Dublin was smooth. Made our way to the train station and had a 2 hour wait for the next train to Kilkenny (not a regular service). It was cold and the terminal was very breezy so not overly excited by it.
Kilkenny is a beautiful little town, especially the part concentrated around the river and near the castle. After checking into the Hostel we just started walking around town having a look and noticed quite a number of pubs - so we thought we should visit a few to get the true flavour of the place. A Kilkenny here, Guinness there and Smithwicks in other places. Was a fun way to spend the afternoon and we got to see various small shops along the way. That evening we had some dinner in a restaurant off the main strip which was very tasty. Then we headed off to a bar which was near the hostel to watch some bands (a guy staying in our room was playing drums and told us about it). It was more of a laid back jazz, funk type music being played with one group having a cellist (spelling?).
