St. Canice’s Cathedral:
In the words of one visitor, “The cathedral itself is beautiful, but the Tower really makes your visit. The views are spectacular, and hey you are in a Round Tower (pretend you are hiding from the Vikings!) – if you can only see one thing in Kilkenny, make St. Canice’s your stop!”
