The sleepy village of Leighlinbridge is fantastic for pubs, walks and of course food, not what we were expecting at all. The Lord Bagenal Hotel is great, right on the riverbank, with lovely seating outside. The room was fabulous, fresh, airy, bathroom was spotless with a lovely big bath. And only 10 minutes away from Carlow with great shops. Would...

Stayed here for a few nights as part of a coach tour. The outside of the hotel looks boxy and functional rather than attractive, so it was lovely to go inside to a modern, luxurious interior, with a spectacular "glass" spiral staircase. The lilies displayed everywhere were delightful, but a low fireplace display was in danger of spoiling clothing one...

This is a beautiful hotel located right on the River Barrow, with its own marina and slip access to the river. The staff are friendly and obliging. We needed access to the slip for launching a boat and they were very accommodating. The rooms are very clean and well decorated, without the wear and tear you sometimes see in hotels....

We are fairly regular customers to the Lord Bagenal as we love the food. But the attitude of the staff is worsening every time. Not a smile or a friendly face to be seen anywhere. A customer service training course would be a good idea. I don't think it matters how busy it gets you have to make your customers...

Can't say enough about this hotel, the location is super the hotel is really elegant and cosy with big deep couches nestled throughout. I had the Whole Black Sole which was amazing followed by chocolate Orange and tangerine cream #guiltypleasure. My partner had the prawn curry followed by bread & butter pudding which were both fantastic. The service was relaxed...
