We had a very pleasant stay. Were there for 8 days. Was the little extras in the room: clock radio, phone, bathroom toiletries, two confortable sitting chairs. Nice sitting room. Great breakfasts. Would recommend to anyone. Good location also, close station, bus stop, downtown - all walking distance. Everything was very clean.

Stayed here for 1 night while attending the St Marys Mass. Room was spotless and the service was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was absolutely spot on, cooked perfectly. Could not fault a single thing apart from the very very very long WiFi access code lol apart from that was perfect. Will be staying here again when in town next.

Returning to Avlon House for another stay was just like going home. The warm friendly atmosphere is clearly visible on entering the front door. Everything you could possibly need for your stay is there for you, if not then Tom will do his utmost to get it for you. I slept like a log in one of the front rooms...

This Bed and Breakfast was wonderful. We were so pleased with not only the room but the beautiful home and all the wonderful little touches. Our room was spotless and had everything we could have needed. The owner was not only very friendly but gave wonderful advice on the area. Our breakfast was hands down the best while in Ireland....

Very nice B&B; Inside and out the place was beautiful and very clean. Our only complaint is that the bed was a little hard, but that seems to be how all the beds are in this country. Tom provided excellent service and the breakfast was delicious.

My family and I stopped at Avlon House on the way to Dublin. The accommodations were the best we experienced while traveling Ireland.
