My 3 children and I had a most enjoyable stay at the Talbot recently.
.
On arrival we were greeted by very pleasant reception staff and from there we enjoyed a clean room, pleasant food, a lovely swim and friendly staff, all at an affordable price. So I would like to compliment and thank the Talbot for creating a relaxing/friendly atmosphere thus providing a pleasant distraction in these recessional times.
Talbot Hotel, Carlow, we found the location was perfect with great amentities/shops and near a lovely river Barrow Walk and super park for kids.
On our experience I wanted to let others know that 'a pleasant experience' is within reach of all.

We hope to return in the summer when I know that the kids club will be available.

Went away for an overnight break prior to the kids going back to school after Chriistmas. Have to say I was very happy with what was on offer. Swimming pool is small but perfectly adequate.

Rooms are fine, could possibly do with updating.

We had an issue with the condition of the bathroom but it was rectified straight away and manager was very professional and apologetic.

the food is very good, we ate both in the restaurant and the bar. Best surprise was the fact that there was a kids club for a couple of hours on Saturday night, even in January. For what we paid I was impressed.

We stayed for three nights at The Talbot in early Jan 2013. Our package included 3 nights bed and breakfast and dinner, so we spent a considerable amount of time in the hotel. Our room was huge with a lovely bathroom, only problem with the room was that we were situated just by a road which was load at night with people speeding by. Any staff we met were polite and helpful. We made use of the pool and the gym, however any more than 5 people in the pool and it feels crowded! We went to the hair and beauty rooms which was very convienient and had some great offers available.
We ate both in the restaurant and the bar for our evening meals. I preferred the bar menu and would have eaten there eavery night given the choice. Breakfast was standard, although they do make your toast for you which is nicer than standing and waiting for your own at the toaster!

Carlow is a great town for pubs so we spent alot of our time in them! I would reccomend the Talbot to anyone going to Carlow for its great value and facilities

Room Tip: Request one off the road

Staff were very friendly and efficient. Room was bigger than we expected. Bar food was lovely. Highly recommended. Great value for money. Children loved it. Only fault there was no hairdryer in our room but I am sure it would have been easly fixed if I had rang reception, I didnt as we were leaving.

Just home from a post Xmas family break at the talbot, Carlow!
We had a wonderful time for the second year in a row!! The staff couldn't do enough for you, from the reception team to the restaurant staff!
We booked a deal with evening meals included and with having an 19 month daughter and a 3 year old son the lovely lady who looked after us at dinner understood that we had limited time between courses and made sure we were served really quickly!!
The whole hotel is very child friendly and we will definitely be returning next jan if not sooner!!
