Travel Haiku - Historic Kilkenny, Ireland


the St Francis Abbey's beer
punctuates our talk of
Kilkenny Castle and Jerpoint Abbey

Visit Kilkenny for impressive historic landmarks, an array of cafés and pubs, and beautiful outdoor scenery. Tour Kilkenny Castle, located on the River Nore in the southern part of the city, where the majestic lakeside setting makes an excellent outdoor playground for kids. For a peaceful afternoon in the country, head to Jerpoint Abbey, a 12th-century Cistercian monastery located just 11 miles south of Kilkenny. And when you've had your fill of medieval monuments, unwind with a pint of local beer at St. Francis Abbey Brewery on Parliament Street.
