St Canice’s itself is a beautiful cathedral with a very good self-guided tour available, and lots of really interesting odds and ends. But the highlight of this site is the 9th century roundtower; one of only two medieval roundtowers in the world that are still able to be climbed. It’s not a particularly hard slog to the top (about 120 steep stairs in six flights), but it’s an amazing experience. A highlight of our time in Kilkenny, and my kids loved it.
