Hi, I just wanted to give some feed back from my wedding on January 13th in your Carlow Talbot Hotel. From our first show around we were extremely impressed with your hotel & especially impressed with Aoife & her professionalism. Part of the reason we decided to book our wedding in your hotel was down to Aoife. Throughout our preparations nothing was too much trouble for the hotel. On the day itself Aoife & Michael (as well as the rest of the staff) were absolutely brilliant. All our guests commented on how amazingly they did their jobs. Food was excellent, to which everyone agreed. I had never used The Talbot before but would definitely recommend it to everyone & use it again myself. Both my husband & I are ex hotel & restaurant & we also had a five star chef as one of our guests. We just wanted to express our thanks to everyone. Also, we want to ensure Aoife & Michael got recognition for a job so very well done. They are a credit to your hotel & your group. King Regards Jackie

We had our wedding here and we couldn't say enough good things about the hotel and the people that work here and everyone who attended our wedding couldn't speak highly how nice and welcoming everyone who worked there was . The day went off with out a hitch. They made our day so special. Not to forget about the Dome it was so amazing that all the children who attended loved it, they were well looked after. The staff were very attentive and even organised babysitter at very short notice. Would highly recommend this hotel.

In December 2015 we booked our wedding with the Talbot Hotel in Carlow for August 2016. From the first moment we arrived Robert, Aoife and all the staff in the Talbot treated us as if we were the most important couple in the world! 
With the Talbot Hotel, from the very first moment, everything felt right. They could not do enough to make our day magical. Robert and Aoife were always on the other end of the phone to answer any question or help in anyway they could. No ideas were too big or too small. All our plans were do-able. Our day was fantastic from start to finish and that was in no small part to the Talbot hotel. The food, the service, the atmosphere and the welcome was beyond amazing. We only wish we could have made our day last longer! 

A huge thank you to Robert, Aoife, Niamh and all the staff of the Talbot for making our day the most magical day we could have dreamed of!!

We had our wedding reception in The Talbot Hotel, Carlow in July. We can’t thank Niamh, Aoife, Michael, Shane and all the staff at the hotel enough-their help and support, friendliness and professionalism was exceptional.
From our first meeting with Niamh, we were positive that The Talbot Hotel Carlow was the right place for us. Niamh and all the staff went out of their way to ensure our reception was just perfect. Any of our own little touches were added in. There wasn’t anything they wouldn’t do to make our day special. The function room was beautifully dressed and our colour theme tied in with flowers and mood lighting. We enjoyed a beautiful meal, that was piping hot and absolutely delicious .The quality of service was fantastic. 
We would whole hearted like to thank you for helping to make our wedding day so amazing and we would 100% recommend The Talbot Hotel Carlow and its staff to anyone considering a venue for a wedding or any other function.
Linda and Ken
