It is the best place in Ireland to pick up a bargain in new, second hand, antiquarian, children’s and specialist books.

The town of books Festival will feature many event readings and workshops for young and old, music galore and a host of tempting foods, crafts and entertainment.

Graignamanagh is the outdoor activity headquarters for the Barrow Valley, and is constantly alive with hillwalkers, cyclists, canoeists, boating enthusiasts and fishermen.
