DescriptionDating to the early 1800's, this landmark heritage building has commanded a prominent position at the gateway to Carlow Town for 200 years and has housed a number of prominent local business families throughout its tenure.
The reception hall, with grand staircase access to upper and lower floors, offers guests the first taste of the impressive interior.
The main guest dining area, a spectacular modern conservatory structure, is accessed via the impressive drawing room.
The lower floor accommodates the main kitchen, laundry room and two private bedrooms each with sumptuous ensuite facilities of a standard to match the guest accommodation.
With a sun-drenched morning room and single guest room off the rear of the main building via mezzanine landings, the main guest bedrooms are spread over the upper two floors, three large rooms on each floor. Each room unique in shape, aspect and size, all carry the uniform high standard associated with Barrowville House for 16 years.
Located just 400m from Carlow town centre with impressive N9 frontage, private parking is offered to the front while the walled, private, rear garden truly compliments the spectacular interior.
