The Blackstairs and Wicklow mountains provide a dramatic backdrop to the pastures and cornfields, the winding country roads and traditional, stone-cut cottages and farmsteads round this charming rural village. Aghade bridge, a beautiful viewing spot over the River Slaney, is nearby. Rathoe village, in the northern part of the parish, lies 6km from Ballon, Kellistown and Tullow. Saint Patrick's church, in Rathoe village is a wonderful example of 19th century craftmanship and is well worth a visit.
