Pocket Guide: 3 stars Hotels in Carlow

Carlow, the county town of its region, has many sights and delights, both in the town itself and many attractions just a short journey away. Booking a three star hotel in the town or nearby will make it easy for visitors to see as much as they can, whether for activity or just casual sightseeing.

The oldest site in the area is Browneshill Dolmen. This megalithic tomb is believed to have been constructed at least 5,000 years ago. It is sited on a hill that was once part of the Browne estate, from which it takes its name. The tomb’s capstone is estimated to weigh 100 tonnes.

Nearby is Shankill Castle, another popular local attraction. Visitors to the estate have the opportunity to take a guided tour of the castle, and take walks around its delightful gardens. The estate is open from Easter to September at weekends, and is host to an array of special events.

Booking a three star hotel in Carlow will also give visitors the chance to see Russborough House. The country mansion was built in the 1740s and has welcomed more than a million visitors who have enjoyed the guided tours around its building and gardens. The estate features a fantastic maze in the gardens, and is home to many artisans and artists, from potters and candlemakers to blacksmiths and stonemasons.

Among the area’s greatest natural attractions are the Wicklow Mountains. There is so much to see and do here, whether enjoying a gentle walk or a more demanding activity. Its national park is a wonderful area of lush Irish countryside, and attracts many visitors who enjoy horse riding, pony trekking, mountain biking and hiking. It is a great place to visit for a short walk or a more demanding four-hour hike.

Carlow town centre is enchanting in itself, with historic buildings all around, and many dining and drinking opportunities. At the heart of the town is Carlow Castle, erected in the 13th Century but almost entirely destroyed in the 18th Century, with only two of its towers still standing. But it is still an enchanting part of Ireland’s history to visit.

Booking a three star hotel in the town centre of Carlow or in its superb surroundings is a great way to explore the many delights. The area’s lush countryside provides so much fresh and tasty produce, from grass-fed cattle, lamb and pork, to enjoyable vegetable accompaniments. This is celebrated in Carlow’s Food Festival, which not only highlights the importance of its food, but also the importance of not wasting any of it.

Hotels in the Carlow area are renowned for the quality of the food that they serve, all locally sourced. After a rest from a day of activity, sightseeing or just relaxing, there is nothing to match a meal at a three star hotel in Carlow, prepared from fresh local ingredients. After that, visitors can enjoy a gentle stroll through the quiet town, stopping for a glass of Guinness or a shot of whiskey.
