Old part of hotel could do with a complete revamp. I like old world but it's dirty, tired n even light fitting in restaurant is falling off roof. My feet were sticking to the floor of old part of hotel. Needs contract cleaners in. Sorry but it's such a pity cause new part is so nice modern n clean. Old... More

Stayed here last night for one night with friends for a catch-up. Really enjoyed our stay. Had really comfortable and spacious rooms (rooms 65 and 69). Lovely cosy bar. Had a really excellent dinner. Great atmosphere as there was a wedding, christening and a 40th. Very relaxing atmosphere. Lovely staff. Hotel location is lovely and beautiful terraces. Excellent value. Would... More

We stayed here last month for 2 nights for a family wedding. We had a massive family room (number 59) which was stunning. A four poster bed along with two singles and plenty of space with a large bathroom. The staff were lovely and the hotel was nice, clean and child friendly. We enjoyed a good pub meal in the... More

We celebrated a recent family birthday for about 70 people - a full sit down meal, James and Kay along with the rest of the team were amazing from start right through to finish. The choice of food on the menu was wonderful, the service was top class, accompanied by a fantastic wine list. James and his team could not... More

Can't rem how to spell it but the fillet was amazing and it was served with asparagus, spinach and some seasoning and was truly amazing food. We were celebrating a family birthday and the staff were wonderful with a surprise gesture for dessert. Some of the best food I've had recently and can't wait to visit again. Excellent in all...

There are loads of hotels in carlow and kilkenny, with even more restaurants from michelin star to cafes but the Lord Bagenal Inn is the only one to offer the best food, amazing wine list, professional relaxed service and a fantastic riverside location which you can enjoy the super canal walks. The Bagenal is somewhat famous for its curries and... More

Third year our company asked where we wanted to stay for the ploughing championships and all six agreed with The Lord Bagenal Inn again. Having grown up in the area I have great memories of the Bagenal & all its wonderful staff; now living in Germany I relish the opportunity to visit and this is our third year to stay... More

Visiting family in the area we popped in with no booking for a table of 8; from the second we arrived we were made feel welcome and looked after brilliantly by everyone. Could not recommend enough, fantastic place with amazing food in a quite little village.

Very mediocre lunch here, slow service and food nothing special. Definitely better places to eat in the locality. Long wait to get food even though they were not busy. Go to the arboretum instead or keep going for Kilkenny.

Was here for a Christmas party night with a group of friends. Reasonably priced package for dinner, band and a DJ. The food wasn't brilliant but you get what you pay for. Beautiful hotel with an amazing chandelier in the lobby. Staff are friendly and approachable. Will definitely return!
