A lovely stay at a lovely guest house.
Room & facilities were 1st class, breakfast was great, tasty and huge portions!
Great location to town centre, a nice stroll which is easily manageable.
intend to go back there!

A very pleasant and reasonably priced place to stay with all amenities and excellent service from our genial host, Tom. The house and gardens are immaculate and secure. We were very happy that Tom was not pushy or over-attentive, but was always there with advice and help when needed. He very kindly phoned our next hosts, whom we had difficulty contacting through Skype, and refused payment for the call. We would not hesitate to stay there again.

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
