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...

The whole experience at Avlon House was a pleasure. The full Irish Breakfast is a must and really sets you up for the rest of the day. The host was very pleasant and very informative on the local area and sites of interest. The room we stayed in was fantastic and comfortable. We will certainly look at returning to Avlon... More

We stayed at Avalon house on 11th July. Our first impressions were fulfilled. Tom introduced himself, welcomed us, asked us to register, then carried bags to our room and left us to settle in . Our room was lovely. I can safely say that I have never seen such a bright, cosy room! It was absolutely packed with 'extras' I... More

Excellent b&b. Standard of Accommodation and food was excellent. Comfy bed. Owner very friendly. Loads of living space to avail of ( inside & out) and if you forget anything, your bedroom sports a spare toothbrush, comb, manicure set, shoe shine etc etc. I was very impressed with the standard of this B&B in every aspect.

Tom was a very attentive host and gluten free was excellently catered for. Extensive breakfast menu. Very clean and tidy. Very well placed for Carlow town centre being only 10 minutes walk. We would not hesitate in staying there again if in area

My husband and I stayed here with my mother and her partner. I can honestly say this is the best B&B we have ever stayed in, anywhere in the world. The rooms are spotless and the breakfast is superb, with a fantastic menu choice. We opted for the full Irish, most days, and this set us up for the whole... More

This was the BEST BnB in all of Ireland! Clean, spacious, excellent breakfast and more than helpful staff! We'd stay again and again and recommend this BnB to anyone going to Ireland for a visit. Don't forget to check out Duckett's Grove nearby either, it's worth the short drive from here. Excellent Job!
