Maureen is the best hostess in Ireland . The bedrooms are fabulous - everything you need and more ! The beds are very comfy and rooms are very cosy .
The breakfast was the best we have had for our whole stay in Ireland ! Beautiful fresh fruit and yummy bread and scones and the boys had a very nice Irish breakfast with the tastiest bacon !
Maureen is such a lovely person - very welcoming and friendly
Would definitely recommend staying here if you are in Birr

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.
