His coat is short and fine on the head and forelegs, and of moderate length and flat on all other parts of the body. He has long, silky feathering on the ears, the back of the forelegs and thighs, the belly, brisket, and chest, with his tail fringe being long and tapered. His colour is a gorgeous mahogany of rich chestnut-red.

The Irish Setter is a wonderful companion who is fun loving, playful and affectionate. He is a true sporting dog who enjoys having lots of room for exercise. He is known to be bold and very intelligent. It is said that once trained, he is trained for life.

The Irish Setter gets along well with children, but his large size and boundless energy may prove a problem around smaller children in the household. They will also get along well with other pets, although early socialization is recommended where other animals and pets are concerned. This is a sociable breed, and the Irish Setter will be friendly around strangers too, which makes him ineffective as a watchdog, although he will bark to announce visitors. The Irish Setter needs plenty of exercise, and is not suited to owners that don't have the time or space to provide physical stimulation.

The Irish Setter, as the name suggests, originates from Ireland, and originally the coat of this breed was red and white. An effective field sports dog and family pet, the Irish Setter was registered with the AKC in 1878.
The life expectancy of the Irish Setter is around 12-15 years, and there are a number of health problems to look out for with this breed. If you are considering the purchase of a Irish Setter puppy, or any breed, it is very important to be selective in choosing a responsible and reputable breeder. Ensure that the prospective puppy's parents have all health clearances.
