Kilkenny is as authentic you can get with renting a room. There are no big chain, American-owned hotels in Kilkenny itself, which, if you're looking for an escape from the bigger things in life, can become a welcomed arrival. Kilkenny's got everything from your backpacker's hostel to your family owned splurge. Too bad the castle doesn't rent out. You could get schlocked and dress up in some Knight's armor, wreaking havoc on the butlers!
