My family just got back from a trip to Ireland. While in Kilkenny we had a lovely sunny day and climbed to the top of this round tower. The views are amazing and well worth the tricky ladder/stairs to get to the top!

We went to the cathedral today and it is well worth a visit. Beautiful place and full of interesting facts and historical artefacts. The staff were friendly and helpful too.

This is a self guided tour. The cathedral Itself was interesting but not a huge amount of things to see. Good facilities for kids. The round tower is not for the faint hearted but definitely worth the climb if able. The views are great and fantastic opportunity to see the inside
