Location so close to everywhere, pubs restaurants and the countryside for walking and siteseeing . Room was beautiful and clean. Breakfast was fantastic. Parking no problem, as it is on the town square.

We recently toured both north and south. Emmet House was our first stop. Excellent location, wonderful hosts, excellent food, great rooms. We got spoiled as any other place we stayed just didn't compare. This should be your "go to" place if you are in the area.

Was on a motorcycle tour when I arrived in Birr. Enquired at the door and luckily there was one room available. I can only say thank you. Spotless room, stored the motorcycles securely (indoors). Extremely friendly, excellent breakfast. A home from home. Thank you very much.

Only stayed one night but got a taste of the Irish hospitality. Room was quite small as was the bathroom but all very clean with comfy beds. Good location to walk into town. Very nice breakfast and hosts that couldn’t do enough to help.

Aabsolutely loved it. Meticulously clean. All the extras of a hotel. Owner was lovely. The property itself is obviously an old Gregorian house but the decor is far from dated. It was warm and did I mention spotless! Situated on a square. Shower was so modern. And a nice touch

Emmet House sits on the Town Square with parking adjacent to the B&B. I was there on a weekend and had no problem with parking.
