Let’s start with CARLOW TOWN

Our beautiful town is thousands of years old and in more recent years has grown into a vibrant College town that has an energetic arts and culture scene and several popular outdoor activities.

  • Carlow County Museum is an award winning attraction housed in the former Presentation Convent on College Street, and offers an array of displays and exhibitions for visitors who want to discover the heritage of the town and its surrounds. ADMISSION FREE

  • Carlow Castle: A hugely important Anglo-Norman castle in Ireland, it dates back to the 13th century. Now all that remains of the site is two battered towers and part of an intervening wall. Open week days only. ADMISSION FREE

  • Delta Sensory Gardens: Described as “an oasis of peace and tranquillity, here you will find a series of interconnecting gardens, covering 1 hectare outside Carlow town. Accessible for wheelchair users, it is suitable for all the family to visit.


  • Carlow Brewing Company: Located in Bagnelstown , this brewery is home to O’Hara’s finest stout, and other famous beers. Established in 1996, they have won several awards for their brewing expertise and offer brewery tours weekly on Thursdays. Booking is essential

  • Take a walk on the Wild Side…. We are so lucky to have some fantastic walks including Myshall tree trail, Ballon tree trail and Oak Forest Park to name but a few.


County Carlow has some superb Golf courses, horse riding centres and mountain bike trails to enjoy if you are looking for an outdoor sporting activity to enjoy. What we have chosen to show you on this page is just a taste of what you can do during your stay with us in Carlow.
