A lovely welcoming house with good facilities. Breakfast was an experience! I would recommend Avlon House to everyone. The house is close to the city centre and our host was able to suggest several good restaurants.

A return visit and for 2 nights this time. What great value for money - and what a super breakfast. The rooms are so clean and with every facility you could need, from wifi to a sewing kit! The breakfast is more that generous and made with quality ingredients which are well cooked. Hope to return one day.

I strongly recommend Avlon B&B the owner is really kind and the place is very clean and comfortable. It is placed on a quiet neighborhood but the town center is less than ten minutes walking. The breakfast is amazing!!!

This B & B was excellent, it was clean comfortable. well appointed, friendly helpful manager. Breakfast was great. If you are in Carlow, you can't go past this B and B, I would certainly stay there again if I was in the area. Carlow is also close enough to Kilkenny for the day and just over an hour from Dublin...
