Day 3: Left Dublin and began our road trip around the island. Learned how to drive on the left side of the road and the right side of the car. A lot of the roads here are ridiculously narrow, which is terrifying when passing oncoming traffic! Stopped at Kilkenny and Waterford, then spent the night off the beaten path in Mooncoin. || #nofilter#shegreeeeen#ireland#roadtrip#castle#kilkenny#eurotrip#dailyupdate
KILKENNY Castle. Co Kilkenny, Ireland. After tremendous renovations the former stately rooms are furnished in the fashion on the late Victorian era. Lacking the grace and former glory of a aristocratic family home, it shows some interesting pictures from other Irish collections, notably the National Art Gallery. I don’t like to bore anyone with a one complicated settlement and trust to secure the castle in the hand of the family when the 3rd Marquess died in 1919. Nevertheless by 1949 after the death of his brother, nephew and grandnephew the estate was inherited by the last surviving brother of the 3rd Marquess, Arthur Butler, 6th Marquess of Ormonde and 24th Earl of Ormonde. This Lord Ormonde sold the deteriorated castle to the Castle Restoration Committee for a ceremonial £50 and bought also the adjoining land around the castle from the trustees to secure the “splendour and dignity” of the castle. Mick Jagger and Marianne Faithful turned up at the handover ceremony (proudly explained by some guide). As Lord Ormonde had no male heirs titles went to his cousin, the 7th Marquess, Charles Hubert Butler, who took an active role as president of the Butler society, preserving the memory of this eminent Irish aristocratic family which descended from a granddaughter of King Edward I of England. Living in the US since the 1920ies, this last titleholder died 1997 in Chicago aged 98. The marquessate became extinct, the earldom is dormant. But claims weren’t successful so far. #butler#ormonde#leadingfamily#kilkenny#kikennycastle#restoration#refurbished#castle#art#collection#irish#heritage#tourist#attraction#roadtrip#ireland

Butter Slip dates to the early 17th Century and originally ran underneath two houses. Its arched entry, stone steps, and narrow and dark walkway connect High Street with St Kieran's Street. It is one of the most picturesque of Kilkenny's many narrow medieval corridors.
