Furniture and Textiles to Last a Lifetime

In my recent travels to Ireland, I visited Kilkenny Castle. This facility was a perfect example of historic preservation and high-quality craftsmanship. This castle was built in 1195 and was transferred to the people of Kilkenny in 1967. The castle and the grounds are managed by the Office of Public Works. As you can see from this slideshow of photos the beauty and attention to detail in the soft furnishings were superb.
