I recently stayed at the Red Setter on another visit to Carlow and I can say that the B&B hasn't changed- It's still my favorite place to stay in Carlow. The Red Setter is within walking distance of everything in Carlow, from the train station to the pubs and restaurants to the shopping. The rooms are very clean and welcoming,... More

This was my third time to stay here for nights out in Carlow with friends and we will be back. From the initial booking it is such a personal service, getting a message with the car park entry code, being brought to our room, getting our bags carried and shown how to use the amenities in the room. The breakfast... More

We were fortunate to book into Redsetter BnB after The Courthouse Hotel just across the road from this one went bust 4 days before we were to arrive! We were attending a family christening. Gavin the hotel owner was fantastic and gave not just us but 3 other of our family groups a warm welcome. The facilities were clean and... More

What a lovely guesthouse, from staff to location i couldn't ask for any more. Very much enjoyed my stay and looking forward to my next visit. Breakfast in the morning was lovely anything you want is available. Room was very clean and warm. Price is fantastic for what you get, better than most hotel's I've stayed in.

Very clean and comfortable accomodation. Lovely cosy room. Fast, free wi-fi. Breakfast is delicious and plentiful. Large, secure car park. Would highly recommend if you need somewhere to stay in Carlow. Thank you Gavin for your hospitality.

centrally located and run by a very friendly and welcoming couple. A lovely clean and reasonably priced B & B that is ideal for individuals, couples and families. This lovely B & B is well located in the town centre.

Stayed here with my father during the ploughing match in sep and thought it one of the best guest houses I've ever stayed in, great location, off street parking at the back, good breakfast in the morning and best of all great value.

I was looking for a cheap single room for 1 night in Carlow. This guesthouse was cheapest in town, so my expectations were not very high. I was pleasantly surprised. Great guesthouse, spotlessly clean. It is a period house and has all the character of one, so don't expect ultra-modern decor. Great breakfast also, quality ingredients. Gavin was very friendly...
