“No. 1 B and B in Ireland”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 May 2014

My husband and I spent several days at Minnock's B and B. Fantastic place to stay. Veronica, the owner of the B and B ,was very attentive to our needs. She makes a fantastic breakfast. Our bathroom and bedroom was spotless. The beds were very comfortable and we slept so well in this rural home. It was very tastefully decorated. Quiet, relaxing and a great place to chill out.
Thank you Veronica for all of your hospitality.

Paul and Sally

Mrs Minnock made us feel personally welcome to her fantastic home. She was very attentive and could not do enough for us - even booking our taxi's. The location is beautiful with Birr town just a couple of miles away. We visited during Birr's Vintage week which was great and very lively. The vintage cars and fancy dress was one of the highlights of our stay. Our room at Veronica's B&B was homely and comfortable and the Breakfast was amazing. There were eleven in our party and we all were impressed with the level of service overall and we will definitely return - hopefully next year...watch this space.

Have sampled Minnock's breakfast in their branch in Manama. The breakfast included all the standard components - juice cereal, cold meat, delicious bread etc., all served with a sense of humour. a thoroughly pleasant. Haven't sampled their bed though. That remains a treat to be anticipated.

Stayed with Veronica whilst visiting my daughter in Co Offaly and am only delighted to report that I enjoyed my stay only made better by the welcome comfort on a wet windy day with a cup of coffee with wonder scones and a comfortable stay in a great room with marvelous onsuite. Veronica was a wealth of information on the local area and was a perfect hostess.

Good afternoon weary travellers and welcome to your oasis for the night...should you find yourself for some inexplicable reason in BIRR, Co Offaly. However, I digress...I'm not here to review the county...more the the County's Top B+B - Minnock's. After I had a quick jam with my good friend Mundy in the local, Minnock's beckoned and I couldn't wait to get me head down onto a comfy pillow...and that, I assure you was what was waiting for me. Granted I had to rouse the lady of the house from her slumber, but to my joy, she not only didn't complain, but sat up with me for a 'nightcap'! What a woman. After she escorted me to my room (which by the way had a fine en-suite and a lovely view over a neatly pruned hedge) I had a great sleep and was only woken (8.40am) the next morning by her cockerel...good sign that...the breakfast had plenty of free range eggs...made to order by herself and freshly baked brown-bread from the night before. I knew the sausages weren't my usual, Superquinn... they were better...'from the local butcher' said she. 'Sound' said I, as I gobbled down yet another free range egg proffered with a wonderful generousity of spirit. I asked Mrs. Minnock if she sold the eggs also...unfortunately, her prize hen was out of sorts and wasn't 'layin' as much for the last few days. As I gathered my gear and guitar, paid for my lodgings, and reviewed my stay...a great welcome, patience of a saint, a nightcap, a wonderful night's sleep, a sumptuous full Irish along with...4 free range eggs! yes...4! She put a lump of warm tinfoil into my hands. 'That's for later on, to make up for the eggs', says she. What was it only 4 piping hot homemade scones. She's some woman, Mrs. M and some B+B...can't wait for the return gig.
