Prolific Waters, and an Extraordinary Wild Environment

The River Barrow, (Abhainn na Bearú or An Bhearú in Irish) has its source in the Slieve Bloom Mountains, a mountain range in County Laois. The river meanders into County Waterford, more than 192 km, passing through the towns of Portarlington, Monasterevin, Carlow and New Ross.

The Barrow then joins an estuary where the rivers Suir and Nore also flow, and finally flows into the Celtic Sea.

On the fishing side, the Barrow abounds in high quality fish, and the most patient anglers will be able to land sometimes impressive catches! In any case, you will find pike, gudgeon and tench, as well as salmon … Fishing spots are exceptionally quiet on the banks of the Barrow, but nothing beats the charm of a small boat on the river itself…
