Situated on the banks of the river Slaney, Baltinglass is a market town with many unique and interesting hill forts bearing testament to human occupation of the area from prehistoric times.
Baltinglass lies in a pleasant part of the Slaney valley, with Baltinglass Hill (1,258 feet) rising steeply in the east and slightly lower hills beyond the river to the west. On the summit of the hill are the remains of a large cairn containing a group of Bronze Age burial chambers. From the summit there is a very fine view over the surrounding country.
