The medieval Irish town of Kilkenny is on the River Nore, about a 60-mi/100-km drive southwest of Dublin. There you'll find interesting architecture, several abbeys and arguably the best pub in Ireland. Start at the tourist information center to see an audiovisual presentation of the town's rich history.
Nearby, outside Thomastown, are the well-preserved ruins of Jerpoint Abbey. http://www.visitkilkenny.ie.
