We drove to Kilkenny today to see the castle. So far, this is the first one that we've toured the inside. No photographs were allowed on the inside. It was what you'd think a castle should look like-many twisting staircases, an enormously long hallway with bedrooms named The Blue Bedroom, The Chinese Bedroom, The Red Bedroom, etc. and a kitchen in the basement all equipped with call boxes. 35 bells in total! We toured the Butler Family portrait gallery--very impressive room. Tim especially liked the quarter sawn parquet floor. Kilkenny Castle

Sofie is sitting in a wood-turned sculpture in the Butler House gardens. That must've been one heck of a lathe!
