Kilkenny Castle (ca. 1195). Robin and I walked into town and had lunch at the Marble City Tearoom on High Street. We then walked around town before heading back to the castle.
Waterford Crystal Gallery and begin a two-night stay at the Granville Hotel. The gallery was stunning, and watching the master craftsmen mould, blow, cut, polish, and engrave the signature glass was truly amazing. I've generated a slide showing our tour through the facility - click on the image below to start the slide show!

Richard Fitzgilbert de Clare, aka "Strongbow" and his wife.
The Cathedral of the Holy Trinity, The Dominican Friary, Christ Church Cathedral, French Church of the Franciscans, and the famous Tower Hotel, or "Reginald's Tower". Built in 1003 AD it is the oldest in-use building in the country!
Returning to the hotel we had a wonderful dinner with our guests. It was then time to get some rest before another big day of touring.
