|This town is situated where the canal meets the River
Barrow and the ideal location to stock up before heading onto the
Barrow. The town has a bustling commercial centre with a number of
shops, pubs and restaurants. The Heritage Centre located in the centre
of the town has several displays on the history of the area.
For something that little bit special, why not take a trip on the
newly refurbished "Aiseiri". This barge has been restored and now
takes trip along the local waterways, with a fully fitted bar it is
ideal for a party with a difference.
South of Athy is the townland Levittstown, from which you can hire
a barge from Leisureways Ireland. These 6 berth barges are sure to
provide the comfortable way to explore the waterways.
