Graiguenamanagh is in County Kilkenny, while Tinnahinch, on the east bank, is in County Carlow. The beautiful bridge, floodlit at night, links the two and dates from 1767 when a canal system was being built on the Barrow to improve navigation. Before the bridge and perched above the town is historic Duiske Abbey, now beautifully restored. It was founded by Norman monks from Stanley Abbey, Wiltshire, in 1204. Take time to walk through the town with its great selection of shops, pubs and music.
