Myself and my husband stayed in the Red Setter for one night in July, but it was like a mini holiday we managed to cram in so much in the two days. Gavin and Triona made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. It was particularly interesting for me as my grandparents had lived in the house and... More

Myself and my son stayed here for a night. The rooms were really really clean and quiet. Staff were very friendly and the breakfast was top notch. All this along with its central location and very affordable rates. I Would recommend this guesthouse to anyone

What could have been an absolute nightmare was really like a small holiday! The owner and his wife couldn't be nicer and more helpful. They really go out of their way for... 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
