The Barrow Way & Adventure Trail

The Barrow Way is 100 km long and it follows surviving towpaths and riverside roads from the canal hamlet of Lowtown in County Kildare to the beautiful monastic site and village of St Mullins in south County Carlow. It is a peaceful route through a quiet sylvan landscape, with the constantly expanding river, growing more majestic every mile, for company. Terrain consists mainly of grassy towpaths, tracks and quiet roads. 

For an enjoyable experience with wide open spaces, mountains and valleys, ideals for the outdoors, whether for a leisurely activity or a real adventure.
