Can you believe how big this castle is? It is Kilkenny Castle and it is from the 13th century. It is breathtaking to see, and very beautiful! I was fortunate enough to spend the night in a nearby castle, and it was fun to feel like a princess for the night. It was a little chilly, too, but it was worth it!
Here I am at another famous historic site, the Rock of Cashel, also known as St. Patrick's Rock or Cashel of the Kings. Most of the buildings here are from the 12th and 13th century, and its history goes back even farther to the days of St. Patrick. These buildings are much older than any I have seen in the United States!
