Kilkenny: A Typographic Wonderland

The other day, the heavens parted & we were granted a glorious sunny day here in Ireland– it felt like spring was finally on its way. This refreshing weather, coupled with the quaint city of Kilkenny (an hour and a half train ride out of Dublin), led to quite the perfect day.

Roaming around Kilkenny, I was enamored with how authentic the city appeared. I just had to capture every nook & cranny of the just over 400 year-old destination. While I clicked away, I noticed the amazing range of typography & design examples. I was so impressed I just had to share!

Even though a little dirty, I loved the sweet colors & type of this store front (Very Valentine’s Day-esque).

I would have loved to buy my school supplies at this shop.

Although it appears this store only sells lamps, I still considered stopping in just because of the inciting sign.

& here’s a shot of the main attraction in Kilkenny: The Kilkenny castle. It was gorgeous on the inside, & as you can see, gorgeous on the outside as well!
