          Staff was very helpful and pleasant, overall a very nice hotel. This hotel would suit couples and families, it's only a short taxi drive to carlow town centre. The food and service at the wedding reception was also excellent. Definitely recommend this hotel.

          There are none as standard in the guest rooms to my knowledge but you would need to check with the hotel if they can provide one. There was no safe either in the standard bedroom.
