This was a great place to stay! We were late coming in on our flight and they were SO accommodating to us not arriving until after 11pm! The king size bed was so nice when we were used to the full/queen size in most B and B's! Everything was very clean and The breakfast was great!

Lovely B&B with an superb breakfast. Would recommend to anyone to stay. The staff were very engaging and pleasent. Room and bathroom very clean and the bed and pillow very comfy. The location was good also just outside the town so noise was at a minimum. Have already booked in to stay again next month.

The place was close enough to city center to walk, but far enough to be quiet. The rooms were very clean and well heated. Breakfast was incredible. I highly recommend this place to anyone wanting to go to Carlow.

Avlon House is a beautiful B&B just a 10 minute stroll from downtown Carlow. It was quiet and clean and we so appreciated the wonderful turn-down service. Breakfast was offered and both mornings were delicious, home-cooked meals.... a full Irish breakfast, eggs benedict and smoked salmon with scrambled eggs. We would absolutely stay here again.

Only stayed here for one night. The host attempted to be helpful giving recommendations for restaurants and activities, the restaurant he sent us to was indeed very good. The property is very nice and he has placed more ammenities than I saw in other B&B's. Also, he made the best breakfast of any of the five B&B's we stayed at,... More

When we arrived at Avlon we were quite surprised, the pictures do not do it justice. It's a beautiful little b&b. We received a warm welcome from reception and were shown to a rather spacious room and offered information and recommendations for the area. The room was very comfortable with a large bed and teas and coffees available. We were... More
