Lovely stsy in Birr
Beautiful inn right in the heart of Birr. Maureen is a welcoming host, an serves a great breakfast. Even though we overlooked a busy thoroughfare the room was quiet and beautifully furnished. Walking distance to Birr Castle gardens.

Perfect Stay in the Middle of a Great Town
Perfect stop on a tour of Ireland. Great town, very friendly and accessible residents (not to mention hotel staff!). The location could not be any more central. HIGHLY recommend a stay here!

Love it!
Maureen and Eveline were lovely hostesses - very friendly and helpful in directing us to interesting outings for our day. Breakfast was wonderful and Eveline cooked us eggs every morning anyway we liked. Maureen sent us off with a bag of amazing homemade buttered scones for our hike through the mountains - very much appreciated! The bathrooms seem newly renovated and the rooms are very clean, even though the building is over 300 years old, I think. Lots of character. I loved having the tea service in the room too. Our only complaint was the morning traffic noise as we had the window open - the inn is on the main square in town. You don't hear anything if the windows are closed.

Absolute Gem!
This place is an absolute gem. Our room was beautiful. I wish we could have stayed longer! The owners were fantastic and treat you like family.
