“An excellent choice for accomodations. Tom and Gerard are great hosts.”
Reviewed August 31, 2010

This is a superb B&B. Tom went out of his way to assist us with directions and to make sure we had an enjoyable visit. He went above and beyond on breakfast the morning (6 a.m. departure). He was sensitive to our needs and helped us as if we were long time friends. The rooms were well appointed and comfortable. Our two teenage boys were so impressed they didn't want to go out at night. Hopefully we'll get back to Carlow and Avlon House will be the place we'll stay.

We travelled to Carlow for a family event with a large party. The standard of the Avlon was excellent and I would say better than a lot of hotels I stayed when on business before. The attention to detail the owners have is incredible. The rooms were clean, spacious well equipped and very comfortable. The choice of breakfast meals was superb but after the first full Irish I had to have it again!! The lounge areas were again to a very high standard and there was even a garden terrace completete BBq, Summer room with Chess, Poker and Music again showing an incredible attention to detail. On our next family trip we will be definitely booking the Avlon. M Bains, Sussex

it was quiet, easy access to Carlow IT and the town.

Thanks Tom.

We arrived at avlon house to be greeted by Tom, who made us feel very welcome. He asked us what time we wanted breakfast at which I thought was nice and also what we wanted for breakfast. We were really surprised when shown to our room - it was bigger than most hotel rooms with a double and a single bed, plenty of wardrobe space, nice furnishings and a lovely clean tiled bathroom. The whole room was spotless, everything was at a very high standard, didnt spot any stains or wear or tear even! There was everything you need to make tea and coffee including biscuits and even a trouser press and hairdryer which i certainly was not expecting! Complimentary toiletries were also provided and the bed was really comfortable! There were two lounge areas which we did not use but they did look nice. The breakfast room was very nice and comfortable with everything laid out on your table for you. The breakfast was cooked to perfection. Really have nothing to complain about! Would definitely stay here again!

We stayed for just 1 night in late june.
Great location, The house is fab and the rooms were the best we have seen and better than a lot of hotels. I will be staying again if I need an overnight in Carlow. The breakfast was also top notch. I would recommend this B&B to anyone staying in Carlow.

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.
