Carlow town dates from the medieval age, when it was a bustling fortress town on the banks of the Barrow. Country villages with all the charm you would expect dot the landscape.  

Did you know that one of Carlow’s towns was modelled on the famous French city of Versailles? Walter Bagenal had such a vision for Bagnelstown, located on the River Barrow. 

Indulge in custom designed guided tours that showcase glorious gems like Huntington Castle or St Laserian’s Cathedral.
