The Village of St. Mullins, County Carlow, Ireland.

St Mullins is located in County Carlow and is just across the River Barrow from The Rower . The village takes its name from Saint Moling and there is a holy well in the village called St. Moling's Well.

The ruined church and graveyard are predominant in the centre of the village and there are a number if interesting and historic graves to be found. Of special interest is the historic high cross

St Mullins was once an important point on the Barrow Canal, which was functioning right up to the 1960s and is navigable to Dublin and into the River Shannon. The river becomes tidal at St. Mullins and there are old grain stores at the canal side, one of which has been turned into a delightful cafe.
There are beautiful walks around St. Mullins including one marked out by the Irish Heart Foundation the "Sli na Slainte" (lit. "path to health", in Irish). This 6Km walk follows the canal up river, then branches through beautiful Bahana Wood, emerging to give some of the best views of the Blackstairs Mountains nearby. a view of St Mullins from just outside The Rower
