Final section of South Leinster Way

The eighth and final section of the South Leinster Way is comprised of the route starting from Piltown and ending at Carrick-on-Suir. The route is quite easy for walkers of all abilities and is located in the eastern region of the province of Leinster in County Kilkenny. This part of the walking route is considerably shorter at just about eight kilometres. There is very little climbing involved on this route. Due to all these reasons, this route can be covered in a pretty short period of time amounting to only about two and a half hours. The traffic on this road can be quite fast. Also the road might be too narrow for the walkers so care should be taken to avoid any unfortunate mishaps or incidents. The area surrounding this walking trail is composed mainly of farmland. Walkers have the choice of climbing the wooded hill of Curraghballintea on this route. Dowleys Castle along Tibbaraghney road is a great place to spend some time exploring. Tibberaghny Castle is a towerhouse that is also worth visiting on this walking path. There’s lots to see in the heritage town of Carrick-on-Suir, especially historic stuff since this town dates back to the 13th century.
