My first visit to Setanta was excellent. All the facilities were there and the reception was friendly and welcoming. I will certainly recommend it to others and use it again when circumstances permit.

This B and B is absolutely tops. Joan is so friendly and welcoming. The rooms are comfy and spotless. The little kitchen is super to make a cuppa anytime or cook if you need to. I stay here often because I go up from Tipperary for instructor training with my horse and it's just 10 mins drive away. A quick spin to salins naas clane and a half hour to Dublin. Also near to Mondello for the motor racing. I couldn't rate it higher. It's a gem to be sure.

Good morning Joan

I just wanted to say thanks ever so much for a wonderful weekend at Setanta B&B! Bridget and I thought the place was absolutely beautiful - so pretty and homely! Yourself and Frank couldn't have been more hospitable and the extra touches were so sweet and very much appreciated!

If we're ever in the area again we will be sure to stay with you again!

Thanks ever so much again for everything.

Kindest regards,

Dear Joan,

I had a great time in Ireland,and I was very lucky to stay in your home... I will recommend Setantahousefarm to everybody in Spain and it will be my main reference for further projects and holidays.

Always is good to be back at home, and play with the children, of course they gave my a wonderful welcome.......

I keep a fantastic remember of my staying in Ireland and I very good thinking of irish people, their culture and values.

It will not take long to be back in that beatiful country, enjoying driving and visiting the racecourses and thoroughbred stud.

Thanks for your hospitality,
Best regards

The following review of Setanta Farmhouse was submitted via B&B Advisor on 13 May, 2013

Name: Dennis Jensen
Country: Denmark

Review: We, 2 adults and 2 children, were welcomed by the owner in a very friendly way, with warm coffee and freshly homebaked scones. The family room was clean, big and equiped with a nice kitchen. The beds were of very high quality, so was the bathroom. There was a beautiful view to the open fields. The heartwarm helpfullness from the owner extended all through our 2 nights stay. This is a pearl of Irish B&B\'s and cannot be recommended enough. If you want to escape the stressfullness of Dublin - this is the place.
