Below is a list of some of the local attractions that are situated in or near Carlow Town.
Carlow County Museum
The Carlow County Museum is the last piece in the towns Cultural Quarter. The Museum is housed in the fully restored Presentation Sisters Convent; the Museum contains many of the original features of the Convent including the original Altar and gold leaf ceiling which are both part of Carlow history and breathtaking to look at.

Central to the religious exhibition will be the original pulpit from the Cathedral.

We have the original gallows from the Carlow Gaol, which will be part of our law and order exhibit. As part of our Science exhibition we will have artifacts on display from the great 19th Scientist John Tyndall who was the first man to discover the greenhouse effect, and is widely known as the father of fibre optics. The Museum is a fantastic representation of Carlow History and the exhibits are so varied that there most definitely something for everyone.

Museum Opening Hours:
Monday - Saturday 10.00am - 4.30pm September to May
Monday - Saturday 10.00am - 5.00pm June - August

The new development of the Museum involved the restoration of the former Presentation Convent on College Street, Carlow Town. The building is in a prime town centre location and is part of a complex that already houses the County Library, Archive and the Tourist Office.
CARLOW BREWING COMPANY
This brewing company was founded by the O’Hara Brothers in 1996. As the Barrow Valley is historically a hop and malt growing region this was an ideal place to open a brewery. They produce premium quality beers with a distinctive taste and flavour as well as award winning stouts and ales.

" Were over in Carlow from Western Australia to visit family on our trip all around Europe! The Red Setter was the best accomodation we had on the whole trip, it was warm and cosy, the beds were comfy and the breakfast was amazing... the best breakfast i have ever had! And don\'t even get me started on the service, Gavin was GREAT, he was very helpful with everything and even looked after one of my friends while she was sick and gave her his DVS\'s. I would reccomend this Bed and Breakfast to everyone and will certainly be back when next in carlow, it was great value! Thanks again from Australia Gavin! :D "
