Blackstairs

Sights from the Blackstairs

Views from the summit of the Blackstairs stretch across Carlow, Kilkenny and Wexford which are stunning and well worth the hike. It is an excellent location for spotting Red Grouse and even Buzzards hovering in the updrafts.

Every hill has a story

Every mountain and hill in Ireland has a story to tell but the Blackstairs may have more than most. The main Carlow to Wexford road ran along the side of the hill and for many years there was an annual meeting here to celebrate the end of the harvest season. It was a place where food, music and drink were plentiful and of course where friendships blossomed!
