My husband and I were at a wedding on the 3rd of November and decided to stay here, offering a competitive price. On arrival, we were met by Evelyn and such a warm welcome we received, she couldn’t have been more helpful. The room itself was immaculate and comfortable. The ensuite was spacious and spotless, offering toiletries. It felt like a home away from home. In the morning, the breakfast was lovely and again Evelyn and Maureen were very friendly and easy to talk to. We would highly recommend to stay here if staying in Birr or nearby. The room itself felt like a hotel room and would definitely stay here again.

Maureen is a fantastic inn keeper. Her Inn was spotless, a short walk to Birr castle, and near the restaurants in Birr. Our room faced Poplar Square and even though the room faced the Square it as quiet and peaceful at night. Maureen was excellent in having the breakfast we wanted and knowledgeable in assisting us in Birr. Our bed was a classic four-poster, the bathroom was spacious and the shower was easy to use. We had a perfect first night on our journey.

Room tip: hotel books quickly - book early to insure you have a room

Loved this guesthouse. So accommodating. Walked through the doors at 4pm to the smell of home. Great family vibe. Our room was so cute, right up the top of the guesthouse, beautifully accommodated our family of 4. The bathroom and our sleeping quarters were so neat and clean. The bathroom was one of the best we had experienced through Ireland. Maureen had provided hairspray and shaving cream along with the usual extras. There were multiple Powerpoints by every bedhead and access to stacks of tv channels. Wifi access. Breaky was divine. Maureen was the best host - took our wet clothes and dried them her own clothes drier. So generous. Would be a bad decision to go past this place. MUST STAY HERE! thank you Maureen.

For years I have been visiting Birr to meet friends, with a family wedding in July we decided to stay at Emmet House. I had never been there before. Well the great welcome we got from Evelyn was like returning home after being away for years, she was truly delighted to meet us with that genuine warmth only a mother can give! She was informative and helpful, not over the top.
Our room over looked the square in Birr, a beautiful 4 poster bed, with beautiful antique furniture, the room was bright and had a lovely en-suite bathroom with all the little bits and pieces you need when your traveling. The atmosphere and decor of the house was top quality hotel standard for a B&B. Breakfast was enjoyable and relaxed, no rushing us. They were most accommodating when we wanted a slightly later check out. Well done to Maureen & Evelyn, you have a beautiful property, with a lovely family warmth, keeping that balance of giving the guest their space too! Its a great place to stay winter or summer. Enjoy.
