After a great night of sleep at the classy Kilkenny River Court Hotel our students saw some amazing and unforgettable sights as we explored Kilkenny and it's surrounding areas. After breakfast we took a walk on the "medieval mile", starting off with a visit to Kilkenny Castle. We ended up at the St. Canice's Cathedral, where the choir stood in a circle and sang a couple of their songs. The acoustics in this venue were amazingly complimentary to the beautiful sound of the choir. Following a great lunch at Blarney Woolen Mills the students accomplished some satisfying shopping to spend their Euro's. A visit to Ireland would not be complete without exploring the Blarney Castle and kissing the Blarney Stone, which was our next stop. The students made the most of their visit to this medieval site. We have not had a bad meal yet. For many of the students the salmon and roast beef dinner at our Killarney hotel was their favorite meal yet. The service we have encountered throughout our tour so far has been world class.
