Fourth section of South Leinster Way

The fourth part of the South Leinster Way is comprised of the route starting from Graiguenamanagh and ending at Inistioge. This walking route is relatively easy for walkers to traverse with very few stumbling blocks to hinder their progress. This part of the walking route is located in County Kilkenny. This walking trail is quite long at about sixteen kilometres. Three hundred and thirty metres is the maximum height that walkers can expect to climb here. Most walkers will be able to finish walking this route in about five and a half hours. R705 and R700 are the roads on this route that will require some care in order to be crossed due to the heavy flow of the traffic. Most of this walking route is comprised of forest road. The forest road on Brandon Hill will provide walkers with some delightful views of the surrounding countryside. Duiske Abbey in Graiguenamanagh will be of particular interest for those who enjoy exploring historical buildings. If you fancy seeing a cairn or heap of stones, just walk up to the top of the Brandon Hill and feast your eyes. In Kilcross, walkers will have a chance to view the ruins of a famine village. Inishtioga village features an eye catching square. There are also some old churches here that are worth visiting.
