From the first email to Niamh in the Talbot Hotel Carlow to our wedding day, the planning process was flawless. The hotel couldn't do enough for us and every query was responded to extremely quickly. We had wonderful service on the day with Niamh, Michael and Joseph and I highly recommend this hotel for a wedding.

We checked in on Saturday afternoon and happened on a very present receptionist that checked us in and gave us all the information that we needed and booked a table for dinner for us.

We stayed in the Talbot over New Years eve and had a fantastic time. The staff were so friendly and the food was excellent. I did read reviews about the same time we were there about the noise of the children running around. Well they were and their parents were a disgrace. I myself had 3 children with me, but... More
