About Carlow College
Carlow College is situated in its own grounds in the heart of Carlow town. With Tullow Street only one hundred metres away, our students have access to banks, shops, food outlets and a wide variety of social venues on the doorstep. Pedestrian access from the town centre is on College Street. The main entrance
is on the Dublin Road, opposite the Court House; the entrance is shared with Carlow’s magnificent Arts Centre, Visual, which is in the grounds of the College.
Carlow College is proud of its long history – it was built before the French Revolution – and it maintains its strong tradition as a student-friendly campus where students and lecturers work together to create the optimum atmosphere for study and personal development. Over the years Carlow has educated generations of politicians, priests, writers and public officials who were leaders in the society of their time. Today’s students find employment in education, community work, the civil service, media and the social care field.
A high percentage of our students proceed to postgraduate studies in the fields of Philosophy, English, History, Theology and Social Studies. The College has partnerships with Carlow University, Pittsburgh, St. Ambrose University, Davenport, Iowa, the Illinois Consortium for International Studies and Programs (ICISP) and with Trinity College Dublin.
