There is a lovely drive with stunning scenery from Myshall up to Mount Leinster and the Nine Stones vantage point.One of Carlow's hidden gems, the Adelaide Memorial Church is located in the village. Built as a miniature of Salisbury Cathedral, this architectural gem was completed in 1912 by John Duguid of Dover, around the graves of his wife Adelaide and his daughter Constance who were killed in ridingaccident near the village. In this "exquisite church of rare beauty" many objects of interest and art are to be seen in marble, woodcarving, stained glass and ironwork.

The design of the marble floor in the Chancel was taken from St. Mark's in Venice while the stained marble steps came from Galway and the red granite pillars from Aberdeen. Mr Duguid's portrait, with his wife's and other members of his family maybe seen in the vestry.
