Visited Carlow for the first time ever..... I wasn't disappointed. The hotel was immaculately clean and welcoming. The venue for the wedding ceremony was stunning and the reception was equally stunning. The meal was fabulous and excelled all expectations. I wouldn't hesitate to return..... One word - Amazing!

We stayed here for one night for our first wedding anniversary. It's a lovely hotel, with beautiful fields surrounding the it. Very easy to get to from Dublin which is always good. The hotel is somewhat old fashioned but that's my taste so I loved it. Bedrooms are a little dated but the bed was very comfy, heavier curtains would...

Stayed for 3 nights, suite 302, lovely room well away from any hotel activities, spacious and airy, bathroom luxurious with an air bath, very refreshing. Reception staff are lovely, special mention to Emma who listened to our family history ramblings! Restaurant staff again very considerate and very more than happy to help us with our special eating requests.

Stayed at a family wedding last Saturday. Staff are lovely as is the hotel itself. Food was beautiful and all the guests commented on this fact. Also a lot of hotels hike their room and bar prices for weddings as they have a captive audience, this is not the case of the Dolmen whose prices are very reasonable. All the...

Nice hotel, friendly staff, good food, comfortable room. Saturday night was quite in the bar but to be expected at that time of year. Would recommend to friends. Only downside is that it is out of town so if you want to sample the Carlow nightlife a taxi is required if you fancy a pint or two.

For example, the breakfast waiter who remembered our room number and whether the guests had tea or coffee the previous day. The food was excellent and great value too.
