Day 7: Graiguenamanagh - Gorsebridge

View from my bedroom window at Waterside Guesthouse

Today was a quiet and relaxing day, following old tow paths along the River Barrow all day; meeting no-one apart from a few runners and dog-walkers.

We stopped for a pint upon arriving in Goresbridge, at the only pub open there that afternoon. Alice, the bar-tender, was engrossed in a game of cards with all the other bar occupants and served me in between her dealing and betting. Cara was allowed in beside the fire so I wasn't complaining though!

That night we stayed in The Almo B&B where Catherine made us more than welcome, cooking dinner, doing laundry and giving the guys a stable and hay.
