Graigenamanagh, east of Kilkenny on the Carlow border, has a fine situation at a bend of the River Barrow, overlooked by Brandon Hill (1694 feet) on the south. The approach to the town from the West gives beautiful views, with the long ridge of the Blackstairs Mountains in the background.
Graiguenamanagh was at one time a place of ecclesiastical importance; it is now a prosperous market town. Salmon and trout fishing is available on the River Barrow and there is also excellent coarse fishing.
