The Kilkenny Castle was built in the 12th century. It is definitely a must see, if you are in the area. It was renovated in the 19th century and has many rooms that are available for visitors.
You have to sign up for the guided tour in the castle in advance, you better do it as you get to the town, because there are quite many people every time.
