Tullow is a small, attractive market town, and a favourite spot for
anglers, in the north-east region of County Carlow. It's situated on
the River Slaney, which flows under a bridge beside the town's former
Methodist church - a picturesque stone building that's now been
converted into a museum. Here, visitors may learn about local history
through the ages and, in particular, about Fr John Murphy, one of the
leaders of the 1798 Irish Rebellion. Fr Murphy was captured and
executed in the Market Square, where his statue stands today. Tullow
provides an ideal base for outdoor activities, from canoeing and
coarse and game fishing in the Slaney and Barrow rivers to golfing
amid beautiful lakes and mountain views at the Mount Wolseley
championship course. The surrounding countryside offers excellent
walking and riding opportunities, while Carlow town, with its shops,
restaurants and family activities, is less than ten miles away.
Dublin City is not much more than an hour's drive from Tullow, which
is also well placed for exploring the sights of north Wexford and
south Wicklow. One big local attraction well worth visiting is the
16th Century Altamont House, whose beautiful 100-acre gardens are
feted as the most romantic in all of Ireland.
