We stayed in this hotel in October 2014 & it was an excellent value for money. The rooms were clean, the breakfast was excellent & the kids loved sleeping in the bunk beds in the family room. The hotel is within walking distance to Birr Castle and this was our goal for visiting Birr.

All the meals were delicious. When we arrived back to the hotel for the wedding breakfast the attention to detail was amazing. The canapes were...

Room for improvement though in dining facilities where staff were a little abrupt though perhaps overworked - there were a lot of people staying. Also...

We needed somewhere to stay pretty much in the middle of Ireland, & we recalled seeing a Great Telescope at Birr Castle on a TV programme, so we looked at Birr, & came up with the County Arms.
