This is a real hidden gem. Standing proudly on the banks of the river Barrow in the medieval river town of Graiguenamanagh, Waterside is a converted 19th century granite cornstore with cosy rooms all featuring the original wooden beams and all overlooking the beautiful river Barrow. Downstairs is one of the
finest restaurants in the south-east specialising in home cooked delights, fish and game, as well as an extensive and mouth watering wine list.
The staff are friendly and efficient and are marshaled by the husband and wife team, Brian and Brigid Roberts, who love to stop and chat to the guests. Graiguenamanagh is a real Irish village nestled in the Barrow Valley under the shadow of Brandon Hill and the Blackstairs mountains;
it boasts a 13th century Cistercian Abbey and 13 of the finest pubs in Ireland, always bubbling with music and Irish craic.
Now to the fishing, well the Barrow has a huge range of coarse fish including specimen bream, perch, roach, pike, hybrids and a good quantity of dace. Graiguenamanagh is not so easy to find, but almost impossible to leave!
