This is the best place to stay in Birr. The room is clean and cosy. You will get yummy Irish breakfast, fresh fruits, toast, ... whatever you want. Mary, the host is a very friendly, helpful and welcoming person. I've stayed here several times and I'm sure to come back soon.

The breakfast choices were excellent and Mary couldn't do enough for us even ironing the boys shirts for us. I... More

I had the pleasure of staying with Mary and family during the 2015 CycleAgainstSuicide. I think we may have had the guesthouse completely full with cyclists. The food was fabulous, the bed very comfortable, but the stand out thing is just how friendly and welcoming they are. If you're looking for an anonymous, corporate style business accommodation then this place... More
