A very friendly, family-run place. We were treated very well there and enjoyed a nice visit to the Birr Castle grounds and telescope. Homemade items for breakfast were a nice touch! The only thing I'd change was the lack of good internet in some rooms.

We came upon this lovely B&B and rang the bell to check for open rooms. A lovely woman answered and 5 minutes later came driving up to let us in. She was so welcoming and friendly. The Emmet House was immaculate and quite charming. She gave us dinner recommendations and the breakfast was outstanding!!

Room Tip: They are all good!!!

We were received with the warmest of welcomes. The bed and breakfast has lovely rooms and it was lovely to have carpet on the floors. Breakfast included homemade bread and scones. We were so full but were given some scones to take away with us. Would recommend this to anyone wanting an veer night stay in central Ireland.

All B&B owners should stay here and see how to run a proper B&B.We had the pleasure to stay here last Saturday and as all the other reviews state it was the best nights B&B stay we have had .Maureen and her Mom made us feel so welcome .The rooms are top class with all you could want.Every where is spotless and feels luxurious no expense spared .The are owners are wonderful ambassadors for the town of Birr with helpful information on places to visit and the best pub entertainment in Kellys with "Rock on Paddy".

Room Tip: all rooms are excellent

If you've traveled at all in Ireland and the UK you may have experienced some small disappointments of things we take for granted in the US at bed and breakfasts. Things like multiple outlets, washcloths, door jams, and hair dryers. The Emmet house had all of these amenities plus a fantastic breakfast and friendly staff. Our room was large - a king bed and a single - hooray! After squishing into queen and double beds, it was so nice to have a king bed. Maureen and her mom Evelyn went out of their way to make us feel at home and succeeded very well. Breakfast was fantastic. This place is perfect for an overnight if you are visiting central Ireland or a trip to Birr Castle, which is in easy walking distance.
