Such a friendly welcome from Martin, beautiful antique looking furniture in the room and was so impressed with the four poster bed. Great value and in centre of town, 2 minute taxi drive from the County Arms where we had a wedding.

Stayed: December 2017

Two night stay in Birr, for a wedding, just before the hurricane. A great welcome, very friendly, typically Irish. Room lovely, breakfast ideal. Absolutely "hit the spot" on all fronts. No idea what it is like in a hurricane.

Arrived later than planned, but went to the tapas restaurant adjacent and owned by same people, had small bites and wine - all great. Room was spacious and well decked out. Staff all lovely. Then the big winner, a customer had come over to chat and inadvertently picked up my wife's mobile phone and left. Proprietor Lorraine when informed left the premises to collect the phone and voila she did. Service beyond the call of duty. To sum it all up - worth 5 stars because in my view they work hard to present an offering that exceeds expectations and it works. Well done to everyone involved.

Stayed here a few weeks ago with my partner and a number of friends. We were all made feel very welcome and really enjoyed our stay here. Would recommend and would have no hesitating in returning. Keep up the good work and think with a little promotion the town of Birr should become a tourist hub that it really deserves. Thanks again from Brendan and his friends.
