Only 15 mins. from Carlow town on the river Barrow you will find the picturesque village of Leighlinbridge. Admire the gardens which are lovingly looked after by the local community who won a gold medal in a Europe wide competition a while ago.
Why not walk across the oldest working bridge in Europe and get to know more about the Black Castle?
Follow us to the ecclesiastical village of Old Leighlin, one of the most important centres of faith in the 7th century. Did you know that the date of Easter was determined here? Hard to imagine that this was once one of the largest monasteries in Ireland. Evidence suggests that more than 1500 monks lived here 1400 years ago.
