Carlow is a county in the southeast of the Republic of Ireland, in the province of Leinster. It is one of the country's smallest counties. The area is rich in scenery, including: the beautiful Blackstairs Mountains in the east, the limestone land of the Barrow Valley and the Killeshin Hills in the west. Sometimes referred to as Ireland's 'Celtic centre', the county hosts a number of ancient monuments and historical sites.
The area is home to a number of pre-Christian tombs, called dolmans. It is thought that these impressive structures date back to the Neolithic and Megalithic periods. The largest and most well known of these is a Megalithic structure, Brownshill. It is thought to have the largest capstone of any dolman in Europe. It is located just 3 kilometres from Carlow Town. There is a car park and a visitor's pathway.
Other sites of note in Carlow include: Carlow Cathedral, a 19th century Gothic structure with an impressive forty-six metre tower; Carlow Castle, formerly a Norman stronghold, this now dilapidated building was built in the early 13th century and is thought to be the earliest example of a "four-towered" keep in the British Isles; St. Patrick's College, dating back to 1793, this seminary boasts to be the largest in continuous use in the world.
Carlow town is located on the banks of the River Barrow, at the junction of the River Barrow and the River Burren. It is the county town of Carlow. It is a busy market town that caters to the needs of the surrounding rural areas.
