We stayed here one night for a weekend getaway. We arrived two hours before check-in and the receptionist, who was very friendly and efficient let us check in early at no charge. We were also given complimentary late check-out for 13:00 which was a nice surprise! The hotel itself is in a great location and very close to the town... More

We stayed 10 nights at the Talbot Carlow as we were visiting family in the area. Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and extremely helpful. Daily breakfast was included in the very reasonable rate and had a wide range of food choices. We will definitely stay here again the next time we visit Carlow.

Travelled to the Talbot from London for a wedding a few days ago - staff were v helpful and was a great venue for the wedding. Red haired lady (apologies didn't get name) was brilliant on check in changing our room to a suite which was a added bonus.

Save your money. Just got home today. Asked for a quiet room as we had two small kids. They put us above smoking shed gazebo and taxi rank. Was awake all night as our room was too hot and had to leave window open Crazy
