3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stayed here on business recently on a Friday night. Having travelled 3.5 hours to the hotel, I was hoping for a restful night due to an early start. The hotel was absolutely bunged but they still facilitated us for dinner in the restaurant without a reservation which was great given how busy they were. The food was good and... More

Having stayed in Hotels in Carlow in the past, this hotel is far superior. Food is good for dinner. Love the breakfast, buffet breakfast but always fresh. Kids disappointed we did not get window seat though. Wedding on, could hear wedding music but did not keep us awake. Some noise during the night from wedding guests but not too bad.... More

Well situated with decent facilities including a swimming pool & well kitted out gym. Clean with large rooms. Breakfast was very good & the steak at dinner was amazing. The highlight of this hotel is the staff; all very friendly & helpful. We were waited on by a gentleman by the name of Conor while in the restaurant & he... More

We (Family of four) visited Carlow in August & stayed in this hotel. The hotel is located very close to the town & the dome is right next door. So the kids were thoroughly entertained with Bowling & Kids Mania. The breakfast was good but could be better. The leisure centre was excellent with a kids area in the swimming... More
