Avlon House Bed and Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed June 6, 2010

This is only the second time we have ever stayed at a bed and breakfast. We were pleased with this place. It was clean, comfortable and in an excellent location where you could walk to centre of town and movie thearters.

Breakfast was excellent.

Played golf at Carlow golf club which is short drive from this establishment. Nice place to play with reasonable rates. Club rentals only 15 Euro per person, includes pull cart, which by experience is good value.

Just had one night at Avlon House in Carlow & I can't rate it more highly. Tom was an excellent host, large room, huge bed, spotless bathroom. The house & garden were beautifully decorated & full of quirky animal sculptures. Breakfast in the morning was excellent & all very reasonably priced. Other B&Bs should stay there to see how it should be done.

My brother and I were traveling Ireland and made our reservation through a travel guide on bed & breakfast's, not really knowing what to expect, but it sounded nice. We arrived on Sunday afternoon and were met by Tom Donagher. He welcomed us to his place, showing us our room and inviting us to use either of two sitting rooms, aquaited us to the dinning room and ask what time we should want breakfast? Then he told us to relax, along with telling us to check out the town witch was very close. We had a great time touring his town and returned to a warm, comfortable, and inviting Avlon house. this was the first place that had a telephone in my room, where i could finally call family in total comfort and with privacy. The whole house was immaculate and inviting, spacus rooms and tiled baths with powerfull showers and plenty of hot water, it was great! Breakfast was the best in all of Ireland and the 1st place that knew how to cook bangers! If you are traveling in the Carlow area, this is the place to stay, no doubt about it! Tom, thaks for a wonderful stay, we will come back and I hope soon, you really put on the Ritz! thanks again,Tom and Pat

I stayed at the Avlon House B&B recently with my girlfriend while attending a wedding in a nearby town. We arrived late in the afternoon & we were welcomed by Tom who was very friendly & polite. After enquiring as to what we would like for breakfast & as to what time we would like our breakfast to be served Tom then carried our luggage up stairs & showed us to our room which can only be described as superb, from the king size bed to the fantastic shower in the en suite, which is exactly what you need to perk yourself up from a long trip. The room offered that home away from home experience & I must say the breakfast the following morning was delicious even do we were an hour early due to the change of time Tom was able to whip up a full breakfast in minutes. All in all I can not compliment Tom & Avlon House B&B enough & we will definitely stay there again in the future.

Tom Donagher owns and operates the Avlon House B&B in Carlow, a wonderful home away from home for the weary traveler. The rooms are large, the B&B offers king sized beds (for us Americans who are accustomed to them) and breakfast is a wonderful treat. Tom is a thoughtful host, always available to help with directions or suggestions for sightseeing. We’re very happy we found this lovely place!
