On our recent vacation to Ireland we stayed one night at Barrowville Town House in Carlow. They were very accommodating even though we arrived earlier than expected. Our room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, although there were some things that could be updated or repaired it was comfortable much like staying with family. The house is beautiful, a warm and... More

To think, we got to stay here because Christy Moore didn't this time! Comfortable, great views, warm welcome, and the best recommendation for restaurant meal prior to the Christy Moore concert! Great location within walking distance of the down town venue and restaurants and pubs. THANK YOU!

We had the absolute pleasure of staying at the Barrowville Town House on Saturday 26th September. It is everything it says on the website and more. We had a fabulous room which we were more than comfortable in with two windows looking straight out onto the private garden. From start to finish our experience was most enjoyable. Carlow has so...

I had almost passed Barrowville and thankfully as there was no traffic in my lane I was able to reverse my car and drive into the private car park. On a dark,wet, September evening it was a delight to enter the door of this lovely, spacious late Georgian townhouse and be welcomed so warmly. It was the perfect place to... More

Barrowville is a gorgeous Regency town house within 5 mins walk of the centre of Carlow town. Bedrooms are large and beautifully furnished, spotlessly clean with comfy beds and tea and coffee making facilities. There is a large lounge for guests and breakfast is taken in a lovely bright conservatory. Plenty of off road parking also!

Breakfast the next day was delishious and all options were catered for. The gardens looked beautiful but as it was poring with rain we didn't... More

Barrowville Town House is actually an Irish gem. Beautiful exterior/ interior, elegant but homely Irish family home from the Regency period -, Dermot and Anna Smyth are welcoming hosts. Soft beds and fine breakfasts! Have stayed before and will again. It's almost hidden from the main road, so slow down to locate !

I stayed here one night with two relatives for a family occasion, one of them had stayed here before, we took three rooms, arrived late one evening, left in the morning. It's a beautiful house built in the 18th century with high ceilings, and lovely sitting room and conservatory where the owner serves an excellent cooked breakfast. The rooms were... More

Barrowville Guest House is a beautiful house filled with antiques. Our rooms were large and had everything you could possibly need. Dermot & Anna are very welcoming hosts and serve incredible breakfasts. They sent us to a great Pub within walking distance.
