The space
The spectacular view of the weir on the River Barrow is Aras na hAbhann's most striking feature. The river sets the tone here, whether it is flowing by gently or rushing past in a raging torrent. It will not go unnoticed. So hang around and enjoy it. A walk, a swim, hire a canoe or a bicycle? All available locally.

Where you’ll be

Borris, Kikenny, Ireland

The quaint village of Borris is the location of Borris House, ancestral home of the family of the High King of Leinster, Step House Hotel and Restaurant, shops and pubs and hosts several boutique festivals throughout the year. For those who like walking Stage 5 of the Barrow Way and Stage 2 of the South Leinster Way pass in front of the house on the other side of the river. This section is a flat grassy path from Ballitiglea Bridge to Graiguenamanagh, with the River Barrow on one side and deciduous forests and farmland on the other. Walkers will encounter beautiful scenery, river locks, riverine wildlife and charming villages along the way. You will pass the most photographed lock at Clashganny and the neaby award winning Clashganny House Restaurant. Graiguenamanagh (two and a half hour walk along the tow path) has pubs, restaurants, cafes and Duiske Abbey. In St. Mullins (15 km or 4 hour walk) the historic ecclesiastical settlement on the Barrow Estuary is well worth a visit as is the Mullachan Restaurant.
