Gordon Bennett Stage 2
This a beautiful, untouched Georgian town, full of charm and heritage nestling in
the fertile valley of the River Barrow, below the curve of the Blackstairs
Mountains. The MacMurrough Kavanagh dynasty, former Celtic Kings of Leinster,
are central to this picturesque town of old stone buildings and the family still
live at Borris House in the town centre. 9km south of the town is the
beautifully preserved 6th century ecclesiastical site of St. Mullins.
