Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed at Avlon House 9 nights this July. The adjective which best describes the place is "outstanding". The House is elegantly furnished and well mantained in all its aspects; it is well located to reach the main attractions; the room I was offered was welcoming and accurately decorated, with a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was superb, especially Tom's cooked dishes. Tom himself is an excellent host, as he is discreet though friendly and always careful to the guest's needs.
I have no doubt in recommending Avlon House to the visitors to Carlow anytime.

A beautiful guest house with good access to the town centre. Would stay again. Plenty of food choices for breakfast. Host Tom was very attentive to detail ensuring our stay was very comfortable. Good value for money.

We loved Avlon and would love to return. The owners were so incredibly helpful, welcoming and friendly. The interior of the B&B is beautifully designed with measures in place for covid. The bed was massive and so comfortable. They really go out of their way to help you if you are not familiar with Carlow in recommending places to visit, eat, etc. Breakfast very nice. TV has Netflix and YouTube which suited us down to the ground. Location is in walking distance of Fairgreen and town centre with a service station a 2 min walk away. The whole place was spotlessly clean. Would highly recommended.

Immaculate Guest House with 5 rooms with Tom the perfect host, nothing was too much trouble. Room was perfection with all the amenities, even had a toothbrush & toothpaste, darning kit, trouser press, shoe shine sponge. All COVID guidelines fully in place. A lovely breakfast freshly cooked with all tastes catered for. The location is close to the train station and 10 minutes from the town centre with private off street parking, we stayed for 2 nights and could have stayed longer.

We found Avlon House to be a delightful place to stay. The house and rooms are spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. Our room included a double and single bed with an en suite, and was very spacious, comfortable and clean. The dining room was very nice, and breakfast was plentiful and tasty, with options for dining (full Irish, continental, vegetarian). A fruit/yogurt/muesli jar (homemade) is provided to guests at breakfast too - a lovely touch.
Although the house is on a main street, it's a very quiet area, with little traffic at night. The house operates a quiet time from 11pm (guests are asked to be mindful of this), and it made for a very relaxing, restful break.
There is ample car parking on the grounds of the house. It's about a 10-15 min walk to the main street in Carlow town, taxi fare is about 8 euro if you don't fancy the walk home!
We were made very welcome at Avlon House, given lots of local information on sights to see and places to go.
Local recommendations: Teach Dolmain for dinner, Racey Byrnes for drinks, Carlow Military Museum

It is a great place to stay for a vacation or a business trip. Both of the hosts are very friendly Persons. The rooms are well cleaned everyday and new Towels and Tea/Coffee bags are given everyday. A place like a five star hotel.

I stayed at the Avlon B&B in Carlow for two nights and I cannot fault it, the B&B was comfortable, clean, an easy 10 minute walk into the centre of town.

The breakfast is well worth the €10, fresh orange juice, granola, fruit and yogurt, cereal, various toasts and pastries and then a main meal which my partner and I chose Eggs Benedict (we regrettably only chose to have the breakfast for the second day).

And to only improve the experience, the gentleman who checked us in and was running the B&B (who I believe owned the B&B) whilst we were there was aptly helpful with guidance for Carlow and was very genial, I would certainly recommend this B&B in future.

Thank you Tom,

Niamh and Ben.

Stayed for 4 nights in Jan 2021. Had a room with double and single bed. Room was spotless and very comfortable. Room facilities were first class. I stayed room only so cannot review breakfast, although Tom was a very polite and helpful host, I would expect the breakfast to excellent as well. The cost of the stay was very reasonable too.

this is our third visit to Carlow staying with Tom. Our room was warm, spotless and everything you could possibly forget to bring with you was there. Breakfast as usual was excellent tasty, hot, lots of it excellent choices on menu. Would highly recommend this nice quiet B&B for a few days break. Excellent location and only a few minutes from town centre.

First time in Carlow on a visit to the regatta. We stayed 3 nights in Tom’s lovely home. The place was immaculate and impeccably clean. Breakfast was great with a huge choice. The full Irish breakfast was amazing.
Car parking on site was ideal and it was only a short walk into town.

I booked directly from their website, and got a confirmation email the same day. I also got an email from Tom (the front of house person) about a week before my stay for confirmation of payment and final details. In my confirmation emails with them, this is the contact information I was provided: Tel: 0599174222 But for the responses, clicking "reply" in the email directed me to a secondary site that had a chat feature. Hope that helps!

I found the owner to be most understanding and professional. I certainly cannot speak for the owner, but if you cancel in enough time, I am sure you and the owner can come to a peasant agreement. Again he is very professional and from ny point of view I will book Avalon Hose my next Fly-Drive in Ireland.
