The Rower

Hello The Rower!

The Rower Vacation Packages

The notable city of Dublin sits 70 miles to the northeast of The Rower.

Make time to visit Ballyhack, only 14 miles to the south. Remember to see House of Waterford Crystal when you get there.

Could you do with a bit of salty ocean air? Two of the best places to get your fill are Brittas Bay Beach, 50 miles to the northeast, and Morriscastle Beach, 30 miles to the east.

Many people visit this part of the country to explore its beloved natural spaces. Experience the magic for yourself at Wexford Wildfowl Reserve and Rathgall Stone Fort, 25 miles and 30 miles away from The Rower, respectively.

Woodstock House and Gardens is a lovely natural space within the immediate vicinity. It'll captivate vacationers from all walks of life.

If you're all about Gaelic football, you will feel right at home at Dr. Cullen Park. It's the home of the Carlow GAA and Carlow GAA, and located in Carlow, 30 miles north of The Rower. If you're a diehard fan of Gaelic football, then this is the perfect place for you.

Carrigleade Golf Course and Woodstock Estate in Inistioge are well worth checking out. This nearby locality is 2 miles away from The Rower. You could also try Clashganny Lock and Borris Golf Club in St. Mullins. This destination rests 5 miles away from The Rower.

To get to Mount Juliet Golf Course, Kells Priory and Jerpoint Abbey, head northwest from The Rower for 9 miles to Thomastown. Grennan Castle and The Watergarden are two more choices that await you here.

Take your taste buds on a journey through the rich culinary traditions of Kilkenny.

To discover the real essence of the region, be sure to try out popular local ingredients like mutton and pork.

Any enthusiastic foodie should ensure they experience Irish stew (lamb or mutton with potato, onion and parsley) and bacon and cabbage (pork back boiled with cabbage and potato) before making their way to any other local dishes.

For a sweet encounter that will leave you wanting more, try sweet seedcake loaf, a delectable dessert.

If beer is what you're looking for, head down to a local watering hole and ask the bartender to pull you the region's best. If they know what they're doing, you'll be served up a pint of Murphy’s Irish Stout.

If alcohol's not for you, Club Orange (similar to Fanta) is a good choice.

Enjoy the spirit of national pride on the 17th of March for Saint Patrick's Day.

Kilkenny is certainly an impressive place. So when it is time to pack up and go, we won't be shocked if you start making plans to come back!

If you want to find the nearest airport, it is 18 miles to the south.
