Location is perfect, set right in the heart of Carlow town - secured / enclosed carpark provided with plenty of spaces & keypad access which was fantastic. Rooms are nice, older style but comfortable & spacious. We had rooms 2 & 3 which were both lovely. Some lovely old features. Breakfast was fantastic - great cure! Service was great, Gavin... More

I've stayed here on a number of occasion while darting in and out of Carlow. The location is central- right in the heart of Carlow. I have found the service to be superb, the bedrooms most comfortable, and the breakfasts in the morning of excellent quality. The proprietor, Gavin, is always welcoming and pays special attention to your needs. The... More

Set in the heart of Carlow town, Ideal location with their own car parking facilities. Lovely friendly relaxed atmosphere, happy to help with any queries. Walking distance from all local amenities. Lovely spacious - spotlessly clean rooms, with a lovely breakfast in the morning.

Arrived mid afternoon on a Friday to be warmly welcomed by Sinead. Both rooms were well appointed and immaculately cleaned as was the rest of the house. As I had to depart early in the morning, I didn't get to sample the breakfast, but I'm assured by my father and my two children that it was superb. A big plus... More

This guest house was recommended to us through a family history forum and I have to say that it was an excellent choice. Gavin and his wife were exceptionally welcoming. The rooms were quite large with double bed twins (I was travelling with my sister) and lovely breakfasts. The car parking is very secure. It is right in the centre... More

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 really enjoyed our stay in the Red setter B&B on Dublin Street, Carlow on Saturday night last! We had two rooms booked which though small were spotlessly clean with lovely bedlinen etc. Beds very comfortable and quiet room in a renovated area of the house - 2 x 4'6" beds in our room, teas-made, great shower etc. We had...

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.
