  • Kilkenny is known as a tourism center for Ireland, but is also a getaway for the Irish themselves. It has numerous festivals in the summer ranging from music to dance-offs, comedy to art shows, and the town erupts in a pride of sport if the hurling or Gaelic football team makes it close to the cozy confines of Croke Park for the finals. If you want to see some genuine human craziness, seeing a hurling game is as good a time as any.
