Since discovering Avlon House B & B, two years ago, I don't stay anywhere else when visiting Carlow. Tom is the ultimate host. He goes out of his way to ensure his guests' comfort. The rooms are pristine and cozy. Bathrooms are also immaculate and well-stocked. The breakfasts are delicious, and I especially like the fact that he provides fruit... More

I booked the room at short notice and I was still provided with and excellent service. The room and en-suite was spotlessly clean, with a large very comfortable bed. There was an offer to be able to use some of the downstairs sitting rooms, that were presented beautifully. Ideal to have this if you had a small group in separate... More

I think I am a bit spoiled by other wonderful B&Bs in Ireland, so my last stay in this B&B did not live up to my expectation. The garden is very cute. So is the breakfast room and the living room area. But the room was quite disappointing. I am very sensitive to smells and the bed linings smell so... More

This charming property reflects the quality of the services provided by its staff. Indeed, in addition to enjoying a lovely room and a delicious breakfast, our host proved himself to be both very professional and friendly. No doubt this hotel is the place to be if you want to spend a few days in Carlow.

I stayed here for 3 nights during April, very clean, tidy and great service. The breakfast was superior to that of many hotels and the overall experience was exceptional. The host was attentive but not overbearing and I'd certainly will stay again.

I booked Avlon House B & B for my 70 year old mother during our stay in Carlow ( I was staying with friends) .. WOW.. What a perfect place for her to stay for 10 nights.. Her room and en-suite was spacious, spotlessly clean, with all the amenities one could hope for. The public sitting rooms are gorgeously furnished.... More
