When a small operator has such an abundance of rave reviews, the wise traveler keeps his mind open to a degree of skepticism. How absolutely wonderful it was, then, to have expectations so completely and thoroughly surpassed by Tom and his beautiful; comfortable; cheerful; quiet; and accommodating Avlon House. The bed was comfortable; the shower decent, the entirety of the...

From booking to departure nothing was too much trouble for Tom. 1s class accommodation excellent breakfast. Clean spacious bedroom and bathroom, nice touch with the shower gel/soap. We only stayed 1 night but have rebooked for the following week.

We were traveling through Ireland and decided to visit the Carlow area for a few days as my husband's family is from there. We found Avlon House to be welcoming and with great accommodations. Would definitely recommend it.

Almost everything was excellent. A clean, warm, welcoming, spacious room; a comfortable bed; adequate car parking; a shower with a really good, powerful flow; a reasonable price; and such a generously portioned breakfast that I was set up for the day - it was a large plate, but was almost overflowing with food! So why was it not quite perfect?...

The place is a BnB guest house but blive me i felt like I am staying in a 5 Star hotel. I cannot find anything in the property which is not state of the art. The place is very near to main city, but still quit and clean. Will Love to visit again.

I had a fantastic time at the Avlon House. The hotelier was excellent, always helpful if you needed to get to somewhere or find out about Carlow and surrounding area and great to talk to as well. The house itself is comfortable, about 20 minutes brisk walk to town centre and fantastic beds that are made up every day.

Found this place at short notice through TripAdvisor when a trip to New Ross overran and we would have been ridiculously late home. When we visited it was still full of Christmas decorations which gave a lovely, welcoming ambience. Our room was a good size, well equipped and beautifully clean. Breakfast was superb. There are two guest lounges, with and...
