Visiting the Irish Countryside by Way of County Carlow

County Carlow, also known as Contae Cheatharlach to the Irish, is the epitome of a true Irish country experience. From its quaint cottages to its friendly Irish towns, you’re certain to find culture and adventure everywhere you go.

Climate
County Carlow is located in the south east area of Ireland. It is one of the warmer locations in Ireland, which is perfect if you’re looking to be outdoors. You should still pack a rain coat just in case you encounter a rain storm. You can expect temperatures to hover around 68 degrees Fahrenheit in the summer months and 45 degrees Fahrenheit in the winter.

Getting Around
There isn’t an airport located in County Carlow, but think of that as an opportunity for adventure. You can fly into the country through Dublin International Airport and from there you have a few options for reaching the County Carlow area.

The best way to get to County Carlow from Dublin International is by taking a bus. Buses run to and from the airport daily. The JJ Kavanagh and Rapid Express Coaches are the more affordable, reliable busses for getting to and from the center of Dublin to County Carlow. You can also get around by train by taking the Irish Rail. The Irish rail takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Award-Winning Dining
While County Carlow is quaint in some areas, it is fairly bustling in others. In fact, County Carlow offers some of the most acclaimed restaurants in Ireland, including the Lord Bagenal Inn. If you are not ready to try out Irish food full-time, don’t worry, there are plenty of restaurant establishments that cater to all tastes. However, you might just find Irish cuisine irresistible, especially when you pair it with the friendly staff and homey appeal that County Carlow restaurants are known for – in fact, you’ll feel like you’re eating with family.

What to See
County Carlow has plenty of sights. The Altamont Gardens offer you a secret gem. From its lush landscape to its overflowing flower beds, you can sit down and enjoy a picnic in peace. The Huntington Castle is also a popular sightseeing location. This castle is full of rich history. Still owned by the Huntington family, you’ll get a personal tour from a family member or representative. You can explore Irish history at the Carlow County Museum. This museum collects and preserves relics from Irish history and offers an astounding amount of literature and education regarding the country itself. The Carlow Historical and Archaeological Society has been collecting relics and artifacts since the 1960’s, but the items found date centuries before that.
