For a very different kind of outing, why not visit Ireland's flagship livestock sales centre, Kilkenny Mart. Everyone is welcome to go and see cattle and sheep being bought and sold in the fine new sales rings - it's great fun watching the auctioneers at work, and then you can queue up with the farmers for a bite at Langtons @ Cillín Hill (Mon-Sat 7.30-4, Sun 9.30-4).
