I have eaten in Teach Dolmain on a few occasions while visiting Carlow. I recently had a family meal here on Sunday. I cannot praise both the staff and the quality of food highly enough.

Arrived in Carlow on a Thursday night and were directed here by the B&B owners. It was a perfect match! They have live music on Thursdays that includes a Trad session that began at 8 pm, followed by the Keltic Kats at 10 pm. The food was served quickly - Portions were large, very tasty and reasonably priced. Wait staff... More

Delicious and great value for money, Teach Dolmain never disappoints on the food front. I has had quite a few evening meals here along with a staff Christmas party which was catered to perfection. Their cocktails are highly recommended too! :)
