Great food in Bistro, nice spacious rooms and pleasant staff. Breakfast suffers usual buffet problem, not hot enough. More signs round the town would help people find it. Overall worth a visit again when in the area.

Stayed in the Talbot Carlow for 1 night Feb 2015 ( also stayed February 2012). Very very clean hotel. Large Spacious Bedrooms', friendly helpful Staff. Lovely Dinner in the evening, and relaxed breakfast and check out. Exceptional Value for money. We will be back again shortly. Thank you.

Nice hotel to stay in. Rooms are big and clean! Food is really lovely and there is plenty to do outside of the hotel. Bowling alley next door to hotel and nightlife is a short taxi trip away . I would recommend for singles and also for families. Staff are great too

Stopped here for lunch on a busy Sunday lunchtime. Despite staff being exceptionally busy - we had top quality service. Food is fantastic, very well cooked and presented. Good ambience & decor. Ample menu to choose from, good drinks selection and yummy desserts ! Will definitely dine here again

Came here with my boyfriend for dinner. Was lovely. Nice atmosphere too. Staff were under a lot of pressure though. Maybe it's something that could be looked at. The wings to start were so nice. Keep up the good work guys.
