Had a very pleasant stay at Talbot Hotel Carlow on 27th August. The staff were very professional, helpful and friendly. The rooms were spacious and the bed very comfy. Dinner in the restaurant and breakfast the next morning were excellent. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return again.

There was a star working in the restaurant named Corey, one of those waiter that can smile and make everything seem calm. Kids club only ran in the evenings from 6-9, all other... More

Large spacious clean rooms. Large renovated bathrooms. Staff very friendly and helpful. The buffet breakfast was excellent, with lots of options. The hotel is an easy drive to downtown Carlow. Parking was free and easy.
