Myself and my husband stayed in this B&B last night and we were really impressed with the place. It is spotless and the furniture is very old world which we love. The bed was lovely and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious with a great selection of everything. We opted for the scrambled egg which was served with mushrooms and grilled...

I've stayed here a few times and have really liked it. It's centrally located with a big carpark. The owners are very friendly and I've appreciated the wake-up calls!! Food for breakfast is very tasty and I assume it's cooked as ordered as it doesn't taste like something that has been kept warm for hours in the kitchen. I'll definitely...

The redsetter guesthouse is perfect for a stay in Carlow. The room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good and enjoyable. Negative points would be thin walls and can hear running water etc and also the hairdryer could be placed near to a mirror. I give it a 9/10.

Really fantastic welcoming by the Host. Beautiful single room but with a double bed and separate shower. Tastefully decorated. Breakfast was really good. Fresh fruit, croissants, cereals and a cooked breakfast. Also has a secured car park at the back of the guest house. Only about a minutes walk to the main street of Carlow so fantastic location.

A friend of mine booked me into the what I thought was a Bed and Breakfast but I was so amazed to find a true Townhouse. It was just amazing and with a super car park right in the centre of this historic town. We received a great reception with wonderful home made gateaux and tea. One glance about and...

We were happy to find this "jewel" after a long day of travel. This quaint, beautifully decorated guesthouse had the feel of a small hotel from a British drama! The room was large and comfortable and overlooked the colorful shops below. We enjoyed the delicious breakfast served on lovely china. We highly recommend a stop here.

We’ve stayed at the Red Setter several times over the past few years, and we’re always impressed. From the impressive secure car park (it’s actually quite lovely!), to the friendly welcome, the comfortable rooms and eclectic artwork and prints, it’s just a very pleasant place to be. Thanks Gavin and staff – keep up the good work!
