Overlooking the fields of Carlow & Laois, the view from the room was amazing, with the bridal suite just next door. Over the course of the next year as we planned our day, we never had cause to regret... More

Just back from a wonderful break with my Mum, staff were super friendly, welcoming and professional, nothing was a bother to them. Highly recommend this hotel to anyone for a short break. I will return with my young family for sure. Many thanks to all at the Talbot for such an enjoyable break.

The hotel is very clean the food is very good I was a little disappointed in the service from reception to bar and restaurant but at the same time very happy with the experience of the stay. My only complaint is the price doesn't justify the service.
