I only stayed for 1 night in the Talbot but I wish it was for longer, beautiful hotel, friendly staff and a great pool. The kids loved the adjoining rooms as it meant they had more space to run around. The kids loved their meal in the Restaurant on the 4th floor and then they went to the hotel run... More

I stayed for a 3 night break in Talbot , Carlow, in Feb 2014. I came with my partner, as a treat, while recovering from surgery. It was the best medicine. I honestly don't know how they can provide such a service for the economical price we paid. It was a midweek booking, 3 nights, B&B & Evening Dinner each... More

As a regular to The Talbot we went there in March for 3 days. This is our second visit this year so far and the standard that the staff set on our last visit we thought would never being matched let along being exceeded.

There was a college ball on the same night I stayed there, I had to ask security to move them on from outside my window which they did no hassle and the rest of the night was blissfully quiet! Very comfy beds, room was spotless. Food in the bar was faultless, really recommend it. Receptionist and bar staff were really... More

I just had to review the hotel and team. I got married here on 21/03/14 and I have to say there was absolutely nothing the team could have done to make it any better than what I experienced. We had an intimate wedding of 30 for dinner and no more than 50 for the evening reception and the team made... More

Nearly 200 euro for a 1 night stay! ridiculous amount. Reception girls were useless and not helpful at all I would even go as... More
