Tullow is located on the River Slaney Valley in the midst of rich, fertile agricultural land. Tullow reflects an enduring historical culture with many items of antiquity including an ancient holed stone “Cloch a Phoill” (Ardristan), a pre-historic ring fort (Rathgall) and a prehistoric burial place (Bawnoge).
Tullow is also the ancestral home of the famous Wolseley family – Frederick York Wolseley gave his name to the Wolseley car. It is known locally as the granite town because of the fine stone used in its walls and public buildings.
ATTRACTIONS: Tullow Museum, Bishop Daniel Delany Museum, Rathwood and Rath Wood Forest Walks.
