“Our perfect Wedding”

I just had to review the hotel and team. I got married here on 21/03/14 and I have to say there was absolutely nothing the team could have done to make it any better than what I experienced. We had an intimate wedding of 30 for dinner and no more than 50 for the evening reception and the team made me feel like I mattered as much as a wedding for 300 people. They accommodated every request I made and considering I have children and couldn't go in for tastings and meetings, they absolutely nailed it thru reading my emails. The Wedding planning team are absolutely amazing, they really do make you feel special and that is all any bride really wants. The banqueting team made the meal perfect and the food was fabulous. The bar people at the evening reception were so accommodating and didn't make us feel like a nuisance even though it was 3.30am before we left the ballroom. The bridal suite was just lovely, comfy warm and had everything you needed and more. Breakfast was great, tho would have been nice to have been offered refills of tea and have the dirty dishes cleared off the table a little more regularly. The reception staff were wonderful and check out was a dream considering we had so many bits to collect to bring with us. I would definitely stay in this hotel again even tho it is literally down the road and I have recommended it to plenty of people as a wedding venue as the price is extremely competitive, the staff are wonderful and the hotel itself is just lovely and made to look beautiful for your big day. I just want to say a huge thanks to the hotel for making my big day so perfect and special!

Myself & my husband recently had our wedding in the Talbot Hotel Carlow, the food was excellent, the management and staff couldn’t do enough for us and really made our day so special, thay also made our guests feel special too. The detail and the co-ordination of all staff was excellent, waiting staff had white gloves on showing the high standard of hygiene that the hotel demands from its staff. A five star rating for this hotel, management and staff is not high enough.
