Places of Interest

Kilbarry, which translates to 'The church of Barry', was site of the monastery and churches of St. Barry. The remains of at least two churches survive. According to legend, St. Barry had no boat to cross the river, and used a larger boulder to make the crossing. There is a boulder at the church at Whitehall that is said to be the boulder used by him.

Castle Forbes in nearby Newtown Forbes, was originally built by Sir Arthur Forbes in 1641, and the present house is a nineteenth century building.

Lough Forbes is ecologically of national importance for the woodland and marshland habitats it supports, and for the birds supported by these habitats including the Greenland white-fronted goose. The raised bog south of the river Feorish is also well worth a visit for the ecologically minded.

Angling Information

Pigeon Island (accessible by boat) is famous for large catches of bream, roach and hybrids.
Popular stickfloat spots are opposite the lakeside garage on the N4 and on the concrete island in the river.

Weir Island has about 8 pegs, and fishes well for roach, hybrids, bream, perch and pike.
