This is a great hotel, great facilities, spent the evening using the steam room and sauna. Food was nice too and the staff were very friendly.

Just returned from a 3 night stay and very impressed with everything at the Talbot Hotel in Carlow. Took advantage of the 3 night 3 dinner package and it proved to be exceptional value with buffet breakfast and a 3 course meal each night.

We were part of a three generational group, with 12 children between 2 and 10 years old. We were well greeted, well served and well fed. Fabulous included breakfasts, dinners, great accommodations, friendly and flexible staff. Pool, bowling lanes, arcade and playground easily accessible. Lots of conversation corners for privacy when needed. All in all, a great experience!
