Love Carlow 

LoveCarlow was originally established as a a re-generation project by the County Carlow Chamber of Commerce in March 2016 with the aim of establishing Carlow as a great place to live, work, shop, socialise and visit.

Carlow is a fantastic town and county and we have so much to be proud of but too often all we hear are the negative stories. As a county, we are not good at shouting about all the wonderful things Carlow has to offer.

Love Carlow is about changing that conversation, it’s about being positive, it’s about building our community, it’s about revitalising the businesses and most of all it’s about shouting about all the reasons why we Love Carlow.

There are many reasons to Love Carlow  and we aim to include as many as possible on this site and to continue to discuss the wonderful assets of the county through our media channels.  Why not add  your voice to the conversation and highlight why you Love Carlow.


Love Carlow – Shop & Support Local Online and Offline

Working with Wise Eyes Creative, we have designed a window sticker for you to display on your car, business entrance, customer areas etc showing your support for local and reminding people to Love Carlow.
