Scenic Walk
This stretch of the Nore Valley walk takes roughly 2 hours at a relaxed pace. Follow the
river as it meanders through meadows, shady glades and past ancient mills; woollen,
grain, paper and saw mills from where Kilkenny’s famous ‘black marble’ was honed
(Maddockstown). Rich in riverside flora and fauna – spot a swift, a heron or catch a
fleeting glimpse of kingfisher or an otter emerging from the riverbank. Described by
The Irish Times as ‘a delightful walk’ and by The Irish Independent as ‘one of the most
delectable river walks in Ireland, an unfolding tale of kingfishers, otters, Sleeping
Beauty castles and wicked young princelings – pure distillation of magic in the
floodlands of Kilkenny’.
Directions to Trailhead
From Kilkenny: The river walk leaves Kilkenny City under
Ossory Bridge
From Bennettsbridge: Under the six arch bridge – take
the steps down to the riverbank by Tynan’s Butchers shop.
