View over Carlow Town from the Killeshin Hills

On a clear day, be sure to go up the Killeshin Hills. Where you’ll be treated to a spectacular view of Carlow town. It’s equally impressive by night.

This viewing point is situated just a few minutes drive from Carlow town centre.

Killeshin is a small village in County Laois, situated five kilometres west of Carlow Town. Nestling in peaceful countryside, Killeshin has such wonderful views across the Barrow Valley to the Blackstairs Mountains. So that it has been called the “The Balcony of Carlow”.
