Walking tours in Carlow, Leighlinbridge and Old Leighlin, Co. Carlow

Discover something really unique: I'm the only one who is providing regular guided walking tours in Carlow town with landmarks such as the castle, courthouse, haunted gaol (jailhouse)and much more. Join me on a walking tour through this charming, typical Irish town.

Only 15 mins from Carlow town, in the picturesque valley of the river Barrow you find the little village of Leighlinbridge with Black Castle, the oldest working bridge in Europe (1000 years old) and four magnificent gardens. Follow me on a little footwalk through the rich history of this place.

On the far side of the river Barrow I will show you the ecclasiastical village of Old Leighlin, which was in the 7th century A D one of the most important places in the Christian faith.


After I collect you from your accommodation I invite you to enjoy a guided tour differently. The landmarks of my home town are full of unusual and nearly unbelievable stories: a castle as lunatic asylum, the original place of the last hanging in Carlow. . . just follow me and I'll explain.

Join me on a trip in Leighlinbridge. This picturresque village situated in the barrow-valley has everything: a castle, gardens and the oldest working bridge in Europe. Take lots of pictures!

In the afternoon you can experience the history and beauty of Old Leighlin with its unique cathedral and the holy well of St. Leserian.
