Stayed for a night for an event in Birr. Lovely, comfy and tasteful room, quiet area, breakfast was hearty and hospitality was on point. Looking forward to staying there again in a couple of weeks time!

We stayed on night as we were meeting family for dinner in Parkers I Riverstown. Minnock's is a good bit out of town but taxi's are relatively cheap. Room was clean but a little dated. Breakfast was freshly cooked with plenty of food and good fresh toast and brown bread.

The hostess, Veronica, was extremely nice and helped me, a weary traveler, feel at home. To me it was a true authentic Irish experience. The Irish breakfast was really good. Nothing to complain about. Great hospitality.

Veronica made us feel extremely welcome on arrival, and settled us in with a pot of tea and biscuits. To be honest the welcome we received felt as though we had known her all our lives, and had popped in for a visit. The rooms were clean and comfy. I have never been a fan of staying in a b&b....
