“Friendly and welcoming place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2013

We arrived on an end to end cycling trip rather frazzled in the midst of a heatwave. Mary very welcoming as were her family. Tea in the garden. Facilities unpretencious but perfectly comfortable - we had a room at front which was utterly scorching (but that no fault of owner). Star of the 'show' was undoubtedly Brandy. Cute little dog, very playful even in the heat. This was his last day with full set of hair before being collected in a van the next morning to be taken off and clipped! Highlight was Mary's son reacting to the emotion of it all by: "jesus, he's only going for a haircut"!

We were very happy with this B&B. The owner was friendly, rooms well equipped, whole place comfortable and very clean, and breakfast big and nice. We had good chilled out time. I happily recommend it to people passing by!

Our family had a great experience with Mary and "Brandy" while spending time in Birr. Mary made us feel welcome into her home and "Brandy" was fun playing fetch with. Thank you Mary and hopefully you were able to get the coffee stain out of the table cloth...

A very pleasant stay here. Mary was a very welcoming, friendly and accomodating host. Room was spotless, warm and quiet. Easy to find with lots of parking. Breakfast was excellent, lovely food, including lovely homemade bread and lots of choice. Good value for money. Would stay here again.

My friend and I stayed recently at an excellent B&B at Birr, Ireland. It was close enough to the town centre to walk, without the hussle and bustle and very quiet and clean. The room was spacious with a lovely ensuite, and the lounge very comfy and inviting.Mary, our host, was so friendly and welcoming and made us feel really spoilt, greeting us with a tea tray and fresh scones, and our breakfasts were also superb. In fact, we didn't want to leave!
If ever I return to Birr, I will definately stay at Aonach again. If you like good old fashioned hospitality, you can't go past this lovely B&B!

I stayed at this B and B for three nights near the end of June. The room was very clean and comfortable with my own private ensuite. The owner, Mary, was very friendly and an excellent cook. She was more than happy to help me in any way that I asked. I will definitely recommend this B and B to my friends.
