Beautiful, spot on the river. Great location in town, walking distance to everything. Quiet area. Everything was clean and tidy. Comfortable, big bed. Owners were friendly and helpful but laid back and not intrusive. Breakfast was delicious with hot portion (full Irish breakfast) as well as cereals, fruit, yogurt and croissants. Fresh orange juice and delicious coffee. Breakfast room was... More

Set in a quiet spot with view of river and hills, the Barrow Lodge has true charm and I loved my four-night stay there in August. The room was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated, with a comfortable big bed and plenty of storage. The breakfasts were superb - all lovely fresh food, beautifully cooked and well presented. The hosts are... More

Mary was a wonderful host, the breakfast was top quality and lots to eat if you're really hungry, the B&B is walking distance to the town centre. Convenient, comfortable and reasonably priced. I look forward to staying there again.

We had a perfect stay at Barrow Lodge. Mary and George are exceptional hosts. The home is pristine; clean, well appointed, comfortable. The breakfast was over the top. The setting is amazing, right on the Barrow River and an easy walk to just about anywhere in Carlow. Mary was extremely helpful with advice and recommendations. The car park is large... More

Thank you Mary for a lovely stay, room, quality food and truly Irish welcome after staying in a hotel on an organised coach trip that wasn't deserving of 4* grading I would recommend any coach party to do bed and breakfast and stop here the owners could not do enough for you. Many Thanks

For the little it has to offer in comparison to other places in Ireland, Carlow is an absurdly expensive place to stay so my boyfriend and I were very glad to get a room here for €50 with breakfast included, though it was a small double room (and the last one they had available). The lady owner is very chatty... More

This is a great place to stay. We stayed there in early October. From our first contact with Mary by phone to her email with directions from the airport to their lovely bed and breakfast , to her printing our boarding passes everything was perfect . You would not get the service you get there in any 5 star hotel... More

We stayed at Barrow Lodge for 3 nights earlier this month. The room, food and location were all faultless. The room was spotlessly clean, the breakfasts amazing, and with a wonderfully welcoming owner to make your stay memorable, we could not have asked for more. We would highly recommend this B&B and would not hesitate to return if the opportunity... More

We stayed at Barrow Lodge B&B for a long weekend at the end of May and would certainly recommend this B&B to others. The accommodation is very clean and comfortable and we were served an excellent and plentiful breakfast (a basic breakfast was even made available to us on the last day when we had to leave early). We received... More
