Carlow Castle was built in the 13th century overlooking the Barrow. Unfortunately, much of it was destroyed in the 18th century and only two towers can be seen today.
Duckett Grove, an example of a Gothic revival castle was home of the Duckett family, was formerly at the centre of this extensive estate that has dominated the Carlow landscape for over 300 years. As the principal seat of one of the most prominent families in Carlow of that time, it remains an important and powerful reminder of a former period, rich in history and deep in tradition.
