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

Perfect location in a quiet street along the river, yet walking distance to virtually everywhere in Carlow. Very friendly owners, great breakfast (which included mushrooms, my favourite). Good value for money (unlike the rest of Carlow!)

Fantastic welcome and a great allround bed and breakfast. I will stay again next time I visit Carlow . Mary is truly a great host and knows her craft inside out. close to center of town and off street parking ,which is vital these days of super zealous parking wardens . Could not ask for better

From the moment we arrived to the morning of departure I can only say Mary lavished care and attention on us. We had booked just one night but decided to stay for two. Breakfast was really great with loads of choices. It sure makes a welcome change from the lukewarm hotel buffets . My partner loved the massive beds and... More
