“Excellent family run B&B overlooking the River Barrow”
Reviewed 3 August 2012

The Barrow Lodge is an excellent family run B&B overlooking the River Barrow and ideally located to explore Carlow town.
The B&B has ample private off-road parking and the owners were very friendly and most helpful.
Bedroom was clean and spacious with a very comfortable king size double bed. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided. Good bathroom with excellent shower.
Excellent cooked breakfast with top quality products as well as a great selection of cereal, fruit, yogurts and juice.
Highly recommended.

Spent three days there this month. Great location, clean, with good food. Couple running the B&B work very hard to make it work. It is located just off the main shopping/entertainment area of Carlow looking over the river. A great place to stay

I wish I could rate the Barrow Lodge Excelent +++ We arrived before check-in time and were still greeted warmly. The owners are delightful, sharing local information and answering any questions we had. The B&B is immaculate, the rooms are a nice size with all necessary ammenities. Our room even had a lovely view of the River Barrow. A made to order breakfast is served each morning which is delicious, with a large variety of items to select from. Carlow is a fun town, full of history, walking trails, shops, pubs etc and the Barrow Lodge is perfectly located in a quiet spot for a walk into town or a stroll along the river. I want to go back!!

Stayed two nights in Barrow Lodge, Carlow in April 2012. Lovely B&B. Very clean and the twin size room was a great size, with a flat screen tv. Loved all the art work in the dining area. Full Irish breakfast both mornings but they also offered a vegetarian breakfast and green tea for my sister. Mary is very knowledgeable of the area and is happy to share her knowledge. I have family in Carlow and would definitely stay there again. Was completely impressed with everything and would recommend it to all.

great place, owner very friendly, steered us to a wonderful "session" of Irish music upstairs from a local bar (that also had wonderful steak/mushroom pie). Nice morning very fun walk along river through town. B&B very clean, comfortable with interesting orginal art in breakfast room.

Room Tip: don't know if they have rooms on the river side, but if so, would ask for one of them.

Based on TA reviews picked this nice B&B whilst on a racing weekend in Ireland. Room was pleasant and very clean - not too cluttered and the double bed was really comfortable. Ensuite bathroom was clean and well appointed small and being a big lad it was a tight fit in the shower, but likely OK for normal sized people.

Breakfast was excellent and the welcome and interaction with the lovely owners was just at the right level. Very willing to give candid advice on the local area.

I definitely recommend the Barrow Lodge B&B if you stay in Carlow.
The B&B is very well positioned, close to the bridge of Carlow and offers a wonderful view of the river Barrow.
The Barrow Lodge is a lovely, beautifully maintained home with so much character and class. The rooms are spacious and clean with lots of closet and cabinet space. The bathrooms are again very clean and well stocked with plenty of fresh towels.
Mary and George offered us warmth and hospitality and made everything to make our stay comfortable.
We had a great full Irish breakfast with excellent homemade jams.
Altogether I believe it would be difficult to find a better place to stay in Carlow.
