Carlow, the lively, principal town of County Carlow, appeals to people of all ages and interests. It's a flourishing market centre, an industrial hub and a base for several thousand students attending the Institute of Technology. Unsurprisingly, then, there are excellent restaurants, bars and stores ranging from boutiques and fascinating small shops to the mainstream fashion outlets of Fairgreen Shopping Centre. Families will enjoy tenpin bowling at the state-of-the-art Carlow Superbowl, while snooker fans can sharpen up their cue action at The Ivy Rooms, and swimmers are welcome at Graiguecullen's pool, nearby. Situated at the confluence of the rivers Barrow and Burrin, Carlow offers lovely cruises and rich fishing opportunities. Golfers, meanwhile, are assured of a fine experience at the scenic Carlow Golf Club. Among its diverse attractions, the town invites visitors to tour the local brewery and to join in all the fun of the annual ten-day Éigse Carlow Arts Festival. At the same time, Carlow is proudly historical with many magnificent sights including the ruined Norman castle by the riverside. A little younger, St Mary's Church and the striking St Patrick's College date back to the 18th Century, and the spectacular Gothic mansion of Duckett's Grove is a must-see.
