“Lovely old house at the edge of Carlow town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2010

Lovely 1790s house at the edge of Carlow Town on the Kilkenny road. Free on site parking. Rooms quite luxurious and in keeping with the style of the house. Bathroom tiles need a little attention. Rooms vary in size but are quite generous. There is a guest lounge downstairs which is nice to sit in for a drink and chat. Anna the hostess is very knowledgeable about the local area and places to eat. Very good breakfast served in the conservatory. Good value at €80 per head for two nights.

We stayed for three nights during our holiday trip in Ireland. The B&B is owned by a very charming couple (Anna and Dermot) which made our stay really confortable. Our room was big, clean and nice, having nice views to a gourgeous garden which can be enjoyed by every guest. The breakfast was spectacular since the dining room is great (nicely decored with great views to the garden) and the food is really good. It is located very close to the city centre and to the IT (which also has a bus stop where it is possible to arrive directly from the airport). Very recommendable place to stay

A first class and charming service befits this lovely 18th century building, offering bed and breakfast with privacy and convenience just outside the town centre. Easy private parking is a bonus. Generous bedrooms and en suite facilities are spotless, traditionally and tastefully furnished in keeping with the surroundings. Breakfast is in the conservatory with views out over the extensive garden and a full range of breakfast options is on offer. The visitor can relax in a comfortable lounge. Anna and Dermot Smyth create a homely ambience with their friendly and welcoming approach and go beyond duty in their care of guests.
( Anna kindly posted on a jacket I left behind, procured signed copies of a book in which we were interested and organised 4 days of sunshine. )
Carlow County is characterised by delightful small towns and villages peppered amid the lush fertile countryside. The roads are first class and the signage excellent. A real treat for green- fingered visitor, there are excellent gardens to visit and a trail to follow, all within comfortable driving distance. Nearby Kilkenny is a must.
