We say good-bye to Dublin and hit the road to Kilkenny. When we arrive we head to the thirteenth century gothic cathedral.
They charge 4€ per person to enter the church, so we point the camera over the wall and take a picture.
Next we climb up the 100 foot tall watch tower outside the church. To go up the tower we climbed a small, steep spiral staircase. The view of the city was worth it.
We walk over to Kilkenny Castle,
and then go to a local pub and get some food.
After that we hit the road to the Rock of Cashel.
Upon arriving we find a place to park and begin exploring the famous old church.
Cashel is the site where St. Patrick converted the King of Munster to Christianity in the 5th century. For several hundred years, the rock of Cashel was the traditional seat of the king’s of Munster. During the Norman invasion in 1011, the King of Munster, Muirchertach Ua Brian, donated his fortress to the Church. The Rock of Cashel is one of the most remarkable surviving examples of Celtic architecture found anywhere in Europe.
Our next stop will be Rossalare where we will take the ferry back to France.
