During our visit to Kilkenny Castle
we had a wonderful guided tour by a pretty young lady. She was
speaking excellent English but with a little bit of a French
accent rather than an Irish one. Turns out she was French and
was working as a guide to practice her English. Anyway, small
gardens to the side of the castle are well maintained and add
to the grandeur of the place. Overall, I think the City of
Kilkenny made a good investment.
