A visit to St. Mullins brings you face to face with Ireland’s Pilgrim Past. Through the centuries, pilgrims walked along the banks of the River Barrow en route to Waterford from Dublin before setting sail for Spain to do the iconic Camino de Santiago.
The 13 km from Clashganny to St. Mullins is captivating in its beauty and in its timelessness. It is worth taking our time here. We stop in stunningly picturesque village of Graiguenamanagh along the way for tea and scones. Walking by the river is simply magical. The surface is gentle on the feet, the vistas peaceful and beautiful.
This place has it’s own treasured history that can go unnoticed to the passer-by. It pays to stay awhile on the banks of the River Barrow and soak in the story of St. Moling and this ancient monastic settlement. We will make our way then to Blanchfield’s Irish Pub to sample the unique hospitality of this place for ourselves. You will be in no rush to leave St. Mullins. You will want to stay longer!
