Journal Entry:
Made a fainal pass through the Guinness shop to pick up some souvineers, then spent the morning calling car renatl agencies. By the time we'd found a car to rent and delt with all the paperwork it was afternoon. Delt with horrible traffic getting out of Dublin.

We stopped in Kilkenny and did the castle tour. I found the tour a little boring, but Jason liked it. The castle was very pretty, I just duidn't think it was that interesting on the inside.

Got to Cork in the dark, found a hostel that we'd seen advertised in Dublin. The hostel was way to disgusting to stay at so we spent the next 90 minutes touring every street in cork multiple times (ie lost) looking for the HI.
