Had several appointments organised for Kilkenny & Carlow and chose The Lord Bagenal as my host and I am so glad I did. My check in was faultless, quick, efficient and with a smile. My room didn't have the best views but it was set out better than most five stars I've stayed in. The food was really great, especially... More

Came here for a quick bite one evening after work. Had brie and chips. My partner had steak burger. It is in no doubt that all the staff and chefs work very hard. It is very well run and food is always great.

I'm just back in sunny California after spending 10 days exploring Ireland and decided to catalog my experience on tripadvisor starting with my first nights stay in the wonderful Lord Bagenal Inn. This place is family run by people who really care, the staff are lovely, the location is fantastic and it's super value. Here I sat down with the... More

Called in to the bar for food on Wednesday 22/04/2015 at 5pm. The bar was quiet, service was very good, as it was a warm sunny evening we enquired if we could eat outside on the deck,we were told we couldn't because of the building work. We often stop off here when travelling back from Dublin and have always found... More

I have eaten here countless times and don't think I could ever fault it, the carvery menu is very diverse and would always have something to suit everyone's taste no matter how fussy, the evening menu has a little less choice but still a good selection to choose from and the portions are always generous no matter what menu is...

This is a lovely modern hotel (doesn't really match the name!), the staff were friendly and helpful, and the rooms were nicely decorated, spacious and clean! The one downfall is that the restaurant evening menu was quite pricey so would probably recommend to try elsewhere, but the food was good so can't complain too much. Would recommend it, the area...

Visiting my wife's family in Carlow we decided to stay at the Lord Bagenal Inn for 5 nights. Staff are lovely, food great and the value is amazing. Construction work was happening during our stay but it never bothered us as everything was happening outside and the amazing river views were still available for everyone. The kids loved the tennis... More

We were staying near Leighlinbridge and brought a couple of our friends to The Lord Bagenal for a meal for their wedding anniversary. This is not our first visit - we have stopped here a number of times before, either when staying in Carlow, or on our way back from visiting a friend of the family in Waterford. We have... More

The Lord Bagenal is a handy stop off the motorway the bar was cosy and had a log fire burning.. The bar food is good and the menu is pretty extensive. They are happy to allow you alter the menu on offer to suit yourself. We only had a main course. We had the Lord Bagenal Chicken Curry €13 which... More

stopped here 1 night on a business trip. Great spot, fantastic rooms, biggest bed I have slept in. Although it was winter, a great view over the marina when I woke up in the morning. Dined in the restaurant, the sow food chowder was awesome and the steak Bob on. Would stop here again.
