The food was excellent and the rooms were clean, comfortable and modern for us all. My son's favourite bedtime teddy was left by accident in the room when we left but when I called that evening the reception staff ensured... More

We as in a group of 13 girls on a hen party stayed in the Dolmen Hotel last night. On arrival to our room the first thing we noticed was that the room was infested with spiders. I asked at reception if they could move us or hoover them up. (They hoovered some of them up). Because we were afraid... More

My wife and I went to Carlow for a little break before the children (one 16 and the other 21) go back to school and college on our own. The prices were fantastic and the 3 day deal was superb value. We arrived on Sunday evening and were treated to freshly baked scones and tea. The rooms are clean and... More

Stayed on a Wednesday Night on a business trip with my teenage son. Mary at reception was both friendly and professional and had great local knowledge. Definitely the best value for money in Carlow Town. Free WiFi, free parking [and plenty spaces] and free newspaper. All adds up! Rooms were spotless, breakfast was hearty and plenty of staff on at...

Rooms need an upgrade, staff wonderful, great place for a wedding, food served quickly and of a high standard. water wastage an issue with dripping taps in our room, so easy to fix, a couple of tap washers would pay for themselves in no time.

Not being quite... More
