The Red Setter guest house is excellent, so clean and quiet, the owners are so helpful in every way. What a great breakfast, highly recommended. We choose this town as it was half way between Dublin and Cork

I just returned to America after a trip to Ireland and a short stay at the Red Setter Guest House. The B&B is in a great location in Carlow, just steps from pubs, shopping and anything you need to do in Carlow Town. The B&B is also located a short drive from some of the town's tourist sites. The rooms... More

I stayed here a while back twice and my room both times was tiny but cosy. It is after all a B&B in a small town on a busy street. The bed while old fashioned was very comfortable and i had an old world charm about the bedroom. the breakfast was pretty good nice portions and enough to fill me... More

We stayed here for a weekend while visiting friends in the area. Gavin gave us a fantastic welcome. A beautiful, very clean & well maintained room including ensuite shower room. It was so quiet we thought we were the only people there until we met some other guests at breakfast. The breakfast we had was excellent, fresh fruit, cereal and... More

This older establishment is very well maintained and clean. The walls of the rooms and hallways host a large and varied collection of paintings and drawings. The location made it easy to get around town. I will say we missed it on our first drive by as the signage is flush on the walls here, and the one-lane street between... More

This fantastic guesthouse was in a good position for access to the town. With the secure lockup it was safe to leave your car free of charge whilst you visited the towns attractions. Everything about this place was good..from the staff to food and even the help I got when I needed an iron.

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
