Picnic at Milford.

Old mill at Milford on the river Barrow

Milford Boat Trips – 3hrs

We heading down stream today on a most peaceful and tranquil trip to Milford in County Carlow. Here we stopped at the 18th century watermill for a picnic. The mill which was originally used to produce flour was later changed over to a Hydroelectric Power station. It belonged to the Alexander family and provided Carlow town with electric street lighting. Under the shadow of the mill, we spotted a gentleman Fly fishing and so it was here we sat for a while watching him ply his art.
