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. Loretta

We heard about Avlon by Googling Carlow B & B's. We had a wonderful 2 night stay and found the Avlon House to be super clean and nicely decorated. We felt safe in the premises and our room was excellent, warm, clean and had every mod-con needed for a good stay. Breakfast was amazing and host Tom was very friendly without being too familiar. He was willing to give us any advice on local sites and travel directions. Plenty of parking and a lovely relaxing back area garden for parking and also relaxing. We would stay there again and it was a very welcoming welcome to Carlow, our first visit but not our last. The Avlon is also very close to the town centre.

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.

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.
