Be daring, venture off the beaten tourist track of large cities like Dublin and Belfast, and come to South East Ireland.Located 50 miles north of Waterford, the charming town of Kilkenny prides itself on its resemblance to a beautiful medieval city. Many areas of the city were constructed in the 21st century, but a wander down its narrow and winding side-streets quickly transports visitors way back in time to its remote origins, which date back more than 400 years to 1609, the year of the city's official founding. Take a tour of the city's and visit some of its most important historical buildings, such as Kilkenny Castle, St Canice's Cathedral and roundtower, Rothe House, Black Abbey, St Mary's Cathedral, Kilkenny town hall, Grace's Castle and St Francis Abbey.
If you have time, why not soak up some of Kilkenny's unique cultural scene, visit the Watergate Theatre, wander through public gardens and museums, take part in the Kilkenny Arts Week, the Cat Laughs comedy festival, and enjoy music at the "Rhythm and Roots" festival. A stay in the city is also the perfect starting off point for exploring the surrounding countryside, which is dotted with quaint villages and, like much of this beautiful Emerald Isle, is lush with rolling green hills, meandering rivers and monastic settlements. Be sure to visit the Kilkenny Irish Pub, take the Kilkenny City Ghost Tour or visit the 12th century Jerpoint Abbey. The town of Wexford is situated on the South Eastern Irish coast and is the perfect destination for lovers of outdoor sports and activities, which abound in Wexford and its surrounding area. For example, Wexford Golf Club boasts a newly built clubhouse and course for visitors and locals alike to enjoy.
