The Courthouse Hotel opened in March 2000. With its central location and close to the River Barrow walkways, town park, shopping areas, other bars, restaurants and nightclubs, it makes for an ideal place to stay.
The hotel is located on Dublin Street in Carlow's town centre. It is approx. 1 hour from Dublin and just over an hour from Rosslare. The Hotel is also less than 10 minutes walk from local train and bus stations. A great base to plan your weekend or holiday break from. With a total of fifteen bedrooms all en-suite with bath, each room has complimentary tea and coffee making facilities with multi channel television and direct dial telephone. There is also a small conference room available for business meetings or for that presentation evening. Secure car parking is also provided directly opposite the hotel in our lock-up car-park.
Carvery Lunch is served each day from 12.30pm to 2.30pm. Our Bistro Menu is available from 3pm to 9.30pm Monday to Sunday. Tea, coffee, homemade scones, freshly made sandwiches and light snacks are also available throughout the day.
The Jury Room Restaurant has an attractive a la carte menu, or for larger parties we have specially designed set menus to suit your needs and price range. There is also an extensive wine list on offer to compliment your meal.
The bar with its split level seating areas, polished wall panelling and all round emphasis on comfort makes it popular with residents and locals alike. The bar also boasts a beautiful open fire. There is a high quality big screen so you can have the best view of all major sporting events.
Live Entertainment is provided every Saturday night with the best local bands. The nights for music may change from time to time and additional nights may be added, such as bank holiday weekends and other holiday periods.
Golf can be arranged at several courses nearby including Carlow, Mount Wolseley, Abbeyleix, Kilkea Castle, Tulfarris and Gowran Park. Mount Juliet and The K Club are both just a 30 minute drive away. We can arrange coach or mini-bus transfers from Dublin Airport to the hotel, and to and from the above golf courses.
Fishing for salmon, brown trout, and sea trout is very popular on the River Barrow and Slaney. A guided tour of the magnificent Blackstairs Mountains, many valleys and trails, Norman Castles, Carlow's many monastic sites, and other hidden gems can also be arranged.
