“Great weekend break!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Just spent two nights in The Courthouse. This hotel scores five stars for service, location and food. The hotel itself is basic but everything else makes up for this. In saying that the hotel is clean and tidy and very comfortable. We had a room away from the main street so noise definitely wasn't a problem. The staff are really top class and we found the food gorgeous! If you like Thai green curry this is the place to eat it. I would go back for that alone! If you want a stay in a centrally located place with great service and lovely food then this is the place for you. Thanks again.

Room Tip: Choose a room away from the main street if noise bothers you.

Went on a Grabone on Sunday 13th, the ' hotel ' is like a throwback to the 50's actually I wouldn't call it an hotel at all more like B/B over a pub. The food was awful, when checking in the lady at reception told me not to eat much during the day because the food for dinner was going to be fabulous and very plentiful luckily I had something for lunch and didn't heed her advice completely. We stayed in a room at the front of the building and hardly slept at all with the traffic, the street outside is quite narrow so the traffic noise was multiplied. There was no fruit or yogurts for breakfast just basically cholesterol clogging the arteries fry and had to be eaten the the BAR likewise the dinner the night before.
My advise don't go near it, as for the parking it was a joke, I wont even go into it.

Room Tip: Don't go

Dear Guest,
I was surprised with the above review and would like to clarify some points,we have a fantastic reputation with our food as you can see from the previous reviews,If the menu was not to your liking and had this been brought to the attention of your server we could of offered you a different option as all the staff here are very accommodating with our guests requests as is again obvious in the previous reviews.I understand you stayed in a room to the front of the hotel and that you found this to be noisy,again had this been brought to our attention we could of moved you to a quieter room. Dublin street in Carlow is one of the oldest streets in the town with a lot of its buildings 'protected' the hotel building itself is over 100 years old and underwent extensive refurbishment in 2000, this gives this street its own charm.Our car-parking is limited as we are based on a street in the centre of town in an excellent location, and had you brought this to our attention we would of directed you to an alternative car park so that this would not of been an issue for you.if you would like to discuss your stay further please do not hesitate in contacting me personally on 0599133243

Kind Regards,
Caroline Dargan

Were just back from a great stay in this hotel.I could not fault it in any way.The staff were fantastic and the food was of a very high standard.I would like to compliment Matthew on the way he served the tables and attended the bar.He was efficient,friendly and he had a great banter with the locals.The car park is a bit tight to get into but we were glad to have it.

Stayed here recently with my wife. The staff are one of the main things that make this place. All staff members that we engaged with were extremely helpful and pleasant.
We ate here on one night as part of a deal and the food was lovely with very big portions.
It's only a few minutes walk from the town centre and a great place to base yourself.
