Located just off Carlow Main Street. Well appointed clean rooms. Excellent bar food and service. Lovely old bar. Table service breakfast. Definitely stay here again. Staff were very friendly. For Guinness lovers like me- they have pint bottles of Guinness 😄

Stayed for a weekend, birthday celebration. From the moment we arrived the staff were so attentive and friendly. Anything we needed they went out of their way to provide. The food was very good and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. Thoroughly enjoyed our time here and will definitely be returning soon! It was like a home away from home.

The Hotel is located on Dublin Street in Carlow's town centre. It is approx. 1 hour from Dublin and just over an hour from Rosslare. The Hotel is also less than 10 minutes walk from local train and bus station – a great base to plan your weekend or holiday break from.
