EXPLORE THE BARROW RIVER TOWPATH
Since 2012 Waterside has been operating a bicycle rental service that is swiftly becoming one of the most popular activity outings for the southeast of Ireland. The reason is pretty simple, the Barrow river towpath makes an excellent cycling greenway that gives visitors miles of safe, traffic free adventure in beautiful countryside. As the towpath follows the river downstream to St. Mullins and stretches upriver as far as the grand canal in County Kildare you simply have miles and miles of countryside to explore.
