Introducing County Carlow

Strings of quietly picturesque villages wind through Carlow (Ceatharlach), Ireland's second-smallest county after Louth. The scenic Blackstairs Mountains dominate the southeast, while the region's most dramatic chunk of history is Europe's biggest dolmen, just outside quiet Carlow town. A ruined Gothic mansion and a reputedly haunted castle form the backdrop to two of the county's best flower-filled gardens.
