First visit to Kilkenny Castle

September 2001, Kilkenny Ireland —

This note is from an email that I sent

I am currently in Kilkenny, and — as you may have also guessed — I'm not sure what I am going to be doing. I like this town. I just went for a walk on the grounds of the Kilkenny Castle . Just brilliant. A more beautiful urban park I've never seen, and the tranquility of it is soothing. It's esthetically amazing. The castle itself isn't all that much to hoot about, but — right across the street from old downtown — the grounds over which it presides [are] fabulous. Long, low-rolling stretch of grass, bordered by a forest of deciduous and evergreen trees of quite a variety. Awesome. I will spend more time there.
