The Mount Leinster Heritage Drive is a 75km driving route through the beautiful countryside of rural south Carlow taking in the towns and villages of Borris, Bunclody, Clonegal, Kildavin, Myshall, Fenagh and Bagenalstown. Notable features in the landscape include the Blackstairs Mountains, and Mount Leinster, it's highest peak at 795 metres.
Identifiable road signs make the Mount Leinster Heritage Drive an easy-to-follow tour while large map boards in the centre of each village or town provide further information. The trail can be joined at any point and driven in an anti-clockwise direction. It is a journey not to be rushed and visitors will appreciate the unhurried pace of life in this area. Traffic jams are an exception with delays more likely to be caused by a herd of sheep lazily moving from one pasture to another.
Each twist and turn of the road will reveal a new delight - beautiful unspoiled villages, breathtaking scenery, interesting rock formations, heather clad hills, grand country homes and ancient heritage sites.
