KILKENNY CASTLE, Kilkenny Town, County Kilkenny Ireland

Kilkenny Castle, County Kilkenny, Kilkenny, IrelandThis is a photo of Kilkenny Castle taken across the River Nore which runs through the town of Kilkenny.  I was standing outside in the patio area of the River Court Hotel.  There are walks on either side of the river and the views are very nice.  Kilkenny Castle is in the town of Kilkenny in County Kilkenny,  It can be confusing when someone just says Kilkenny as you don’t know if they are referring to the town or the county.

  2. We say Kilkenny when we mean the city, and County Kilkenny when we mean the county! What could be simpler? It’s a beautiful spot!


    • Interesting. Here in US I have friends who are from County Kilkenny (not the city), and when you ask where they are from they say, “Kilkenny” not County Kilkenny. Maybe it’s something to do with being transplanted…? At any rate, it does have its beautiful locations and I love Kilkenny city.

      • Well you are right. I am from County Donegal and if anyone asks me where I am from I say Donegal! We also have a town named Donegal! But as a non Kilkenny person referring to Kilkenny I would say Kilkenny for the city and County Kilkenny for the county. As you know, we Irish can be hard to follow sometimes!


  3. Just beautiful 😄
