PREVIEW:

A jewel of a county with a wealth o scenery, from rich pasture to mountains and of sporting opportunities including River Barrow cruising, angling, walking, pony trekking and golf and everywhere the tangible resonance of her ancient past.

With two of the great river valleys of the South East running through it - the River Barrow and the River Slaney - Co. Carlow is one of the great focal points of Ireland's ancient history.

The tangible presence of Celts, Druids and early Christian settlements are still a fascinating and enthralling part of the Carlow of today. Known as the "Dolmen County", you'll find these massive stone reminders of our heritage dotted among small and interesting towns and villages that appear to have stood still as if the pace of modern time has passed them by. Centuries of abbeys, castles and churches remain to carry our ancient history forward to tomorrow.

But side by side with our yesterdays is the Co. Carlow of today with a range of modern leisure activities that offer the welcome visitor plenty of other opportunities to enjoy themselves.

From superb angling and boating to championship golf, walking, cycling or horse riding over an untouched landscape or browsing through shops and craft centres displaying the very best of local skill and craftsmanship.
