Well known city, because of the beer with the same name. The town is a normal irish place, but it offers some pieces of history for example, that are worth a visit. They have a beautiful medieval castle, it is well preserved.
You can also take a look at the Kilkenny brewery and buy some good local bear or just make a little shopping tour through the town and get some nice Irish handycraft.
Like at every bigger city, you find a variety of pubs and bars there.
So this place is worth a stop, even for a couple of days to relax in Irish manner.
