Cullintra House is fortunate to have some wonderful country and hillside walks on its doorstep … literaly! Brandon Hill is the most immediate and there is a private marked pathway leading directly from the house to the top where an ancient cairn sits. On a good day you can see where several counties in Ireland meet – Kilkenny, Carlow, Wexford, Waterford & Tipperary.
The area is the centre of a growing hillwalking trend in the Southeast. The Barrow Towpath is also of course the route of the South Leinster Way and walkers can also visit the Blackstairs Mountains.
One of Kilkenny’s many walking and cycling trails passes the gate of Cullintra House.
