Not sure who came up with the description of "Boutique" B&B. Apparently someone who didn't know the meaning of the word (A business serving a sophisticated or specialized clientele). There was nothing sophisticated or special about this B&B. The room was not decorated very well, it was extremely small (and that was fine but it wasn't a boutique). The bathroom... More

The only thing I regret on my trip to Birr is not having stayed longer at The Emmet House (due to work engagements). A lovely atmosphere and a warm welcome from Maureen and Shirley, the sisters-owners of the place. Emmet House offers a quiet surrounding for a good personal time away from the demands of everyday life, while being very... More

Excellent B&B. Stayed one night but immediately felt at home. Room was spotless as was the bathroom. Our host evelyn , could not have done more for us. She was genuinely very welcoming. Room had everything we needed including really comfortable beds. Would not hesitate to recommend this B&B.

We spent a really nice weekend in this b&b which was really worth the money. Our room was nicely decorated and clean. Whatever we needed it was always there, mostly without even asking for it. The room had a nice, welcoming, Irish kind of feeling with a view to the town square to be enjoyed with a nice cup of... More
