Special occasion

Posted 18-Feb-2018
When we checked in they tried to charge more than my booking price and it happened to my sister. In fairness and thankfully I had a print out and they accepted my booking price. Not a hotel for kids. Food was very good. A little expensive for what we got. Wouldn't go back.

Excellent Hotel.

Busy, fine, comfortable hotel in nice surroundings just outside Carlow Town. Food was very good at dinner & and breakfast was excellent. Family rooms a good size & very clean. Staff everywhere in the hotel were never less than excellent & couldn't do enough for you. 30 min drive to Rathwood Village & the same for Discovery Park in Castlecomer if you need to keep the kids happy. Would definitely return!

Room was not ready at 4.45 pm and so we were given another room which obviously needed refurbishment. The bedside lamps and tv remote did not work.

Pros: See above
A larger hotel. I was immediately struck by the friendliness of the staff, and this continued throughout my short stay. Room was large and comfortable. Food at the restaurant was very good with huge portions. My only criticism, and it is a significant one, is that there was so much noise throughout the night. The hotel was hosting two large functions (on a Sunday evening!) and the revelries continued through to the early hours. What disturbed me was regular slamming (that is what is sounded like) of doors. I was woken on several occasions by this. I would recommend this hotel if there are no all night functions planned for that evening, or the room is well away from the activities. A shame, as in all other aspects I liked the place.

Pros: Room was very comfortable and clean, The staff were very welcoming and courteous. Breakfast was a very good quality and extensive in choice. Evening m
Cons: The only negative was a foul smell on the ground floor corridor (I am sure it was down to a vending machine leaking gasses)
Location: Excellent for business and touring
Room was very comfortable and clean, The staff were very welcoming and courteous. Breakfast was a very good quality and extensive in choice. Evening meal menu was a little limited in choice, but, done to a high standard.The WIFI was excellent connectivity. The only negative was a foul smell on the ground floor corridor (I am sure it was down to a vending machine leaking gasses) I would definitely stay here again

Handy for an overnight stay

Posted 20-Sep-2017
I’ve stayed at the Dolmen a couple of times now, staff are really friendly, food in the restaurant is fantastic. Rooms are clean and tidy and well equipped. The only thing that lets it down ever so slightly in my opinion is that the bathrooms are starting to look a little tired but still perfectly functionable. All in all, I like staying here and will book a room here again.
