Discover the secret life of the Blackstairs Mountains, County Carlow, and know more about birds, flora, fungi, mammals and butterflies of the Blackstairs mountains and the River Barrow.

The Blackstairs Eco Trail Tour offers a fully guided walk to suit all ages, through the lovely lanes, lowlands, bogs and streams of the Blackstairs mountain area and the River Barrow, County Carlow. Walk with Mary and Robert to enjoy a unique rural experience.

Depending on the weather, the tours will be in the foothills of the Blackstairs – low hills or no hills.

We begin at the Old Rectory Killedmond, Borris with tea/coffee and home-made biscuits and scones at 12 noon. Here we’ll have an introductory chat about the day’s adventures and then off to the Blackstairs or the Barrow…. a short drive from the Old Rectory.

The two hour tour takes you through the lovely lanes, lowlands, bogs and streams of the Blackstairs and the River Barrow, County Carlow, with expert guides.

A good old-fashioned Rectory Tea will be included in the price at the end of the walk. Most food is organically produced at Killedmond.

Discounts available for large groups, schools, OAPS or private tours.
