“Great place to stay in the centre of Birr”
Reviewed 24 August 2011

We stayed at this B&B for one night (Saturday). The welcome was great and the room beautifully furnished with a great shower. Breakfast was delicious - especially the freshly baked scones.

I first stayed here in May for a weekend and was so impressed with the very warm friendly welcome that I received that I have stayed here monthly since. The hosts Maureen and Shirley are extremely friendly and attentive and go out of there way to make your stay an enjoyable one. My room was spacious and comfortable and had all the amenities that a top hotel would have. I could not recommend EMMET HOUSE highly enough.

Lovely decorated house, right in the town centre with a very attentive host.
We got a 4 poster bed! Everything was perfect.

Convenient, Clean, Convivial, comfortable - a warm welcome (including complimentary tea and scones) from very friendly proprietor Maureen and her mother. Right in the centre of Birr, close to everything. Very nice comfortable room with ensuite - all spotlessly clean. Slept like a log - probably due to the excellent Guinness we had in the Swan Bar. Good Irish breakfast kept us going all day! Great value for money and will definitely stay here again.

Stayed for one night only as we were at a Wedding at another Hotel. Maureen and her mother were very welcoming and friendly. The room was Fab!!!! Did make it for breakfast despite being hungover. Breakfast was cooked to order and fresh fruit salad was bliss. Maureen even kindly dropped us at our wedding venue so that we could leave our car. The only negative was that we were only there for the one night. Loved this place and loved Birr. Would love to go back again. Highly recommended

Room Tip: Room 1 is FAB, a four poster bed
