Kilkenny (anglicised version of the Irish Cill Chainnigh, meaning Church of Canice), the capital of County Kilkenny and also known as The Marble City, is a small medieval city located in Southeastern Ireland. The River Nore flows and splits this cosy town in two. Kilkenny offers a rich cultural heritage, colourful pubs, dark alleys, adorable Georgian doors, narrow streets and of course, the beautiful Kilkenny Castle - not to mention the Kilkenny pint, for the beer lovers. People are lovely and the cafés are homely and pretty. Kids were playing hurling at school and everyone looked, somehow, familiar. It's a quiet place, compared to Dublin, but who doesn't fancy some tranquility every now and then?
