Can everyone tell me how long it would take to drive from Cork to Kilkenny? My husband and I are going to be in Ireland for 4 days, coming over from continental Europe, and flying back to the states when we leave. We are wanting to split our time between Kilkenny and Cork (two nights each place). I know there is plenty to see if we just stay in Cork, but I have heard wonderful things about County Kilkenny and want to see it too. We plan on hiring a car when we get into Cork (we'll see if we can drive English-style!)
Also, any recommandations for guest houses or B&B's in Cork would be appreciated. We are looking for a room for $100 a night or less.
Finally, how hard is the Cork airport to get to and navigate through? If we are boarding an international flight, how early should we get there?
Thanks in advance!
