Bathrooms have been modernised to ensure a power shower to enjoy! Gavin & Triona are so friendly & have always made us feel at home here. Whilst situated right in the centre of Carlow town, its away... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and were welcomed by very friendly staff. Breakfast was delicious and beds were very comfortable. Our room was pretty quiet for being in the center of town -- the only drawback of this b&b was the thin walls (we could hear our neighbor snoring at night). Fantastic stay.

Book this guest house on the strength of its looks and central area to the town. Booked it on booking.Com and got the confirmation. The evening before we were to set of this guest house ring me to tell me I have no booking as they don't accept Visa debit cards. My argument is that I have a booking confirmation... More

Location, décor, and comfort were all great. Additionally, interesting items of local interest, books, pictures and memorabilia, were scattered conveniently for visitor perusal. On top of that, the hosts were truly outstanding in their hospitality in their patience and assistance when I was having difficulty in contacting my traveling companions.

The Red Setter exceeded my expectations for sure, with great hosts and a meticulously maintained establishment. I stayed in 2 different rooms and each had a spotless bathroom, a very comfortable bed, lovely bedding, curtains, and wall hangings and flat screen smart tv !. The breakfast was fabulous and there was ample secure off street parking. I had a wonderful... More

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

My mother and I moved to Carlow but there was a delay in the auctioneers with moving into our new home. We spent 8 nights at this bnb. 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
