The Barrow Bridge

The Waterford to Rosslare rail line crosses the river Barrow, between Killkenny and Wexford, just north of Cheekpoint. A boat entering or leaving the Barrow river system must contact the Barrow Bridge (086-8167826) to open the bridge. The Barrow Bridge is manned 24 hours a day but it is advised to call in advance of your journey. The lift of the Barrow Bridge is free of charge.
