Owners are excellent, welcoming and prepared to supply you with information. I intended to stay three days, but added four because the quality for the price is just there. I intend to return later this year and will definitely return to this guest house. Rooms are in excellent shape, clean, tidy and without wholes in the linen that I have... More

Stayed recently at the Red Setter Guest House. I was very impressed. The host was so nice but not intrusive. Many rooms so you don't feel like your in someone's house. Rooms are very clean, comfortable beds, wifi in the rooms and a smart tv! They also have on site private parking. Highly recommend!

The room was very tidy, cozy bed and equipped with basic amenities. Breakfast offered was delicious. Gavin is very friendly... More

Arrived at roughly 4pm, and was greeted by (who I presume was) the owner, who helped us with our bags and showed us to our spacious room at the very back of the Guest House. Everything was spotless, and the TV has loads of channels which entertained us as we were too tired to sightsee. The walls are thin, allowing... More

We stayed one night at the Red Setter at the start of a 2 week driving tour of Ireland. It was a real find and a great start to our trip. Gavin was extremely helpful with advice of where to go next and was a charming host. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean and breakfast fantastic. Secure on... More
