The ruins of Blundell castle in Edenderry, once owned by Lord and Lady Blundell. The Grand Canal - take a nice walk along the canal and check out the old bridges. The grand canal wasn't intended to pass into Edenderry but Lord Blundell paid to have it diverted into the town, that's why it ends at a wall in the town instead of continuing on. There are historic plaques placed around the town on churches and houses - it might be fun to walk around and see how many you can spot.


Walk. Fish in the Grand Canal - make sure you throw the fish back though as it's illegal to take them home with you. Shop in the new shopping complex just of JKL Street.

O'Donoughes pub is to be avoided if you are looking for an eventful evening, the regulars in there are at least 50 and they younger people that frequent the place are either old before their time or serious hard drinkers. There's no music played in there and only one barman who is slightly hard of hearing.


Popular pubs in Edenderry are Foys and Larkins where you can be sure to get late drinks! Pats Bar and Byrnes are also great bars with fine pints. Club 38 has recently opened in Finbarr Cullens, so for Saturday night clubbing its the place to be, other bars to check out are the four sons for fine cocktails and the Corner House for live bands on the weekends.


There are no hotels in Edenderry which is a bit of a disappointment, but there are a few B&Bs around the town such as Foys pub and Burnes pub.
