A lovely scenic walk, on a fairly flat surface makes walking along the Barrow perfect for walkers of all abilities. There is also plenty of space for stopping and having a picnic.

Why not treat yourself and stop by the Clanard Court for classic afternoon tea and watch the local alpacas graze on the lawn. If it’s pampering that you are in need off, be sure to visit Revive Garden Spa which includes two outdoor hot tubs, perfect for the sunny days ahead!

Grad Kilkea is an amazing hotel, event venue and golf club. Offering any of three kinds of accommodations; The Castle itself, the Carriage Bedroom and the Self-Catering Golf Lodges, there’s something for everyone here. It remains a firm favourite for weddings due to the beautiful building and spacious event rooms, and the golf course is fairly nifty too.


Hiša in vrtovi Burtowna


An early Georgian house located just outside Athy, the accompanying 10-acre garden is home to a dazzling array of flowers and trees. Available for tours and events, with an art gallery, restaurant and shop, there’s so much to do in just one outing at Burtown hiša.

Once thought to be the tallest, and currently the second tallest high cross in Ireland, the 1,200 year-old Moone High Cross is a must-see for history buffs. A little bit off the beaten track, but worthwhile when you find it to marvel at the beauty of the cross, and explore the monastery. While on your excursion, why not pop into Kruh & Pivo in the Moone High Cross Inn for a delicious lunch in a beautiful setting!

A lovely excursion for any boating enthusiast, or for someone who just wouldn’t mind a relaxing cruise down the river. Very reasonable prices and available for any occasion and for any group, young children and adults alike. Very knowledgeable and helpful staff, with tea and snacks included.


Auld Shebeen

How amazing does the Rooftop Cocktail Bar in the Stara Shebeen look? We highly recommend visiting their trad music sessions following a day on the Grand Canal with the Athy Leisure Boats. Contact the Auld Shebeen to book!

The Levitstown Mill, although no longer functional, is a beautiful building to visit, and a popular landmark in the area. It is flanked by both the Grand Canal and the River Barrow, and is well worth a visit.
