We stayed here for two nights and enjoined the nice accomodation. The room was really big with a friendly atmosphere. The host was so friendly and helpful, just amazing! If you plan to go to Carlow and want to have a great stay, go to Avlons!

We found this B&B absolutely beautiful, well worth a 5 star ratings. The breakfast was very tasty and the room really gorgeous and extremely clean with lots of goodies like toothbrush, comb, mending kit, razor, etc that you don't often see in B&B's, Tea and coffee facilities, even though it would have been nice to have decaf coffee! Our room was very quiet as we had asked. Town was literally 10 minutes walk and we got the loan of bicycles which was great fun. We can't wait to go back!

After the poor night before in Wexford this was a haven of peace and comfort. Stayed here 2 days/nights to visit my families home county of Carlow. This is a rare find among B&B's anywhere. The owner is so helpful and obliging, he couldn't do enough to make our stay brilliant.
There are only 5 rooms all en-suite and so comfortable. Free Wi-Fi which was so efficient - come on you big hotels if a B&B can do it why not you???
The breakfast choices were excellent and varied to allow for individual tastes. You can watch a DVD piped to your room or sit in the dedicated lounge for that; there is also a quiet lounge to sit and read. I don't smoke any more but even smokers were catered for with a dedicated smokers outside lounge room (posh shed)..
Carlow is lucky to have this B&B among its hospitality venues and I would not hesitate in not only staying there again but heartily recommend it to everyone. Am looking at our next visit already and this will be our base in Carlow again.

Stayed at Avlon House for two nights last week and could not have asked for a more perfect stay.
The B&B is ideally situated ten minutes outside Carlow town.The rooms were very comfortable with tea making facilities and wifi. There was a healthy option for breakfast as well as a traditional Irish which was delicious. Tom, the host of the B&B was welcoming and could not have been more helpful with any queries we had. I highly recommend Avlon House, it is excellent value for money, we could not fault it.
Thanks Tom x

This was our much looked forward too 2nd visit to Avlon House,this time we stayed for 10nights,another delightful visit.As before Tom was the perfect host nothing was too much trouble throughout our stay,his wealth of knowledge of places to visit & directions were very useful.
Our room was large spotlessly clean very comfortable & refreshed daily.
As for the breakfast on offer,all we can say is watch the waist line with the portion sizes,the full Irish is definitely the All Day Breakfast,
We are certainly looking forward to our next visit,and recommend Avlon House as the best place to stay when visiting Carlow.
Well done Tom thanks again.
