Things to do in Carlow Ireland
The Mount Wolseley Hotel , Spa and Golf Resort is a rare delight, like snow at Christmas. A rural retreat nestling in the rolling hills of County Carlow, the Mount Wolseley Hotel Carlow allows a process of genteel regeneration to take place against a backdrop of comforting elegance. Enjoy the championship golf course, tennis courts, children's playground and indulge yourself in our beautiful spa. For comfort and great food to enjoy, this is a reinvention of the great country house resort hotel.
A century and a half ago Francis F. Hayden wrote that the view of Co. Carlow from Mount Leinster was "as wild, as romantic and picturesque a range of scenery as ever attracted the pen of a Byron, the pencil of a Reynolds or the genius of a Thomson".
He talked about the country's "fertile vales and lawns, unfolding their several beauties to the feasted eye of the entranced traveller". Much has changed since Hayden's lines were written in 1822 but no doubt he would still be well pleased with the sporting oasis created on the former demesne lands of the Wolseley family at Mount Wolseley, near Tullow, where today stands a world-class Carlow Hotel and an 18-hole championship golf course of international standards.
