Our stay was serenaded by loud party goers on the patio outside the pub until almost 2:00 AM. We called the front desk at 12:45 AM and the revelers were told to stop singing.

Breakfast was fantastic, plenty of items to choose from.The staff were all very pleasant and efficient. Bedroom was very good, with a really comfortable bed.... More

The Hotel was very busy with a funeral but we were asked on several occasions was everything ok. Much appreciated. This is a small thing but believe me goes a... More

We stayed at the Talbot as a party of 4 while attending the Challenge Tour golf event in Tullow. The reception staff were very friendly despite having to explain to me that we had been allocate the "disabled room" 202 without a bath for one night.

Good Standard hotel with all amenities wifi, parking and ample rooms. Good value too when I booked over the phone. Restaurant on top floor is impressive with good views. Acceptable gym facilities albeit on the cusp of needing updating.
