Stayed here for a wedding for three nights. We had a room request which was taken on board which is great. Reception was nice and friendly. Asked for an ice bucket a couple of times as there is no fridge which was swiftly delivered to the room. Room was spacious and comfortable. The telly isn't your usual press the operate... More

Just back from an amazing weekend at the Talbot and it was one of the best weekends away I've had in years. There is entertainment in the hotel on weekends and the food in the bar and restaurant are fab, which is great as it saves you having to go into Carlow town at night which is about 5 minutes... More

I ate here once about 6-7 years ago and swore I would never go back, I am glad to say they seemed to have moved with the times and now offer a better selection of food. The bedrooms are just ok, I was there for 3 nights for the ploughing championships and couldn't get the tv to work at all.... More

I couldn't recommend the Talbot Carlow enough. Our team from DoneDeal stayed there for this week of the 2014 ploughing championships and the hotel staff really went above and beyond for us all week even under such busy circumstances. All the staff were fantastic, especially Robyn who served us dinner in the bar all 3 nights. She was so pleasant,... More

I stayed for three nights second week of September. First room I got may have been empty for a bit - and furniture and carpets were damaged and it smelt. As I was travelling alone I felt uneasy about the room and when I explained this to staff they immediately changed my booking to a room on the same floor... More

My hubby and I had to visit Carlow today and called into the Talbot for a bit of lunch. The food was delicious followed by a frothy cappuccino & mint tea. No sign of a tea bag it was brewed from loose tea from a well stock range, served in a lovely pot! Both tea and coffee was accompanied by... More

I stayed here on business recently on a Friday night. Having travelled 3.5 hours to the hotel, I was hoping for a restful night due to an early start. The hotel was absolutely bunged but they still facilitated us for dinner in the restaurant without a reservation which was great given how busy they were. The food was good and... More
