Barrow Valley

Anybody been to the Barrow Valley?

Borris - Graignamanagh - St Mullins

Not exactly on the tourist trail but close to Kilkenny.

How was it?

We wandered up there when we stayed in New Ross several years ago. Pleasant countryside, with the ruins of an old abbey in St Mullin's along with a Holy Well as I recall. There's also a very pleasant walk along the River Barrow up to Graignamanaugh if you're so inclined.
As you note it's way off the usual tourist map but it makes for a pleasant excursion if you're looking for something different for a day.
