St Mullins is in the sunny south east of Ireland which has the lowest rain fall in the country.Steeped in history. St Moling set up his monastery on the banks of the river Barrow in the 7th century and the monastery was later settled by the Cistersian monks in the 12th century. This area was raided by the Vikings coming up river from their settlement in Waterford. In the 12th century t the Normans arrived under Strongbow and built a Motte and Baily overlooking the river. The Barrow river provides a gate way to the centre of the country and today cruisers and barges make their way past the cottages on the way to inland Ireland.
