Inistioge is an attractive village on the River Nore. The swimming spot is located just outside the town. The river is tidal and when we were there it was very shallow and not attractive for swimming. We were reassured by the lifeguards that the tide comes up to a good height and you can jump in from the wall at the river’s edge.
This is a small, but attractive location. There is a car park and one picnic table.
Lifeguards are on duty during the summer.
In Inistioge take the R700 in the direction of New Ross. After you cross the bridge watch out for a sharp ( not signposted) right turn – L82831- which will bring you to the spot.
