Took a half hour road train ride around Kilkenny Town. Driver/Guide (very amusing friendly driver) pointed out the local landmarks and added his own information. A fun half hour trip.

This was a lovely trip. Paul was fantastic with the children (7,5,3) as we waited to leave. We all enjoyed the city commentary and the kids had lots of questions afterwards about what we saw and heard.
