Milford

One of my favourite places to stop for a while. Sandwiched between Carlow Town and Leighlinbridge, Milford offers a peaceful venue to watch the river flow. I’ve seen otters here and there is usually a heron on the weir. The mill had one of the first hydroelectric turbines in Ireland.

Near to Milford is the village of Ballinabranagh. Go through the village and follow signs for Trailhead to Clogrennane Woods – a pleasant 4k looped walk with views over County Carlow. Link here.
