TinnahTinnahinch, on the Carlow side of the River Barrow, and Graiguenamanagh on the Kilkenny side, are popular boating centres whose character reflects a bygone time when the area was an important focal point for commercial traffic on the river.

Tinnahinch & Graiguenamanagh to Inistioge (K-N) Walk

Tinnahinch Castle was built around 1615 by James Butler who later lost his lands because of his involvement in the Confederate War of 1641. It was built to control a crossing where a wooden bridge once spanned the River Barrow. The castle was burnt around the year 1700 and has lain that way ever since.
