Three miles (5km) south of Leighlin-bridge, also on the River Barrow, is the pleasant town of Muine Bheag (formerly Bagenalstown), a fishing and hunting centre. Eight miles (13km) downriver from Muine Bheag is the little town of Borris. It has golf (9) and is a good point from which to explore the Blackstairs Mountains to the east (highest point Mount Leinster 2,610 feet). The beautiful Borris House demesne lies between the town and the river.
