We chose to stay in Birr as our travel plans had us getting in late to Dublin, and we wanted to see Clonmacnoise. Evelyn was so warm and accommodating, and our room with the gorgeous four poster bed overlooking the square was the perfect way to end our day. Our favorite part was the hot water bottle tucked in the... More

Just one example of the caring help guests are treated to: we were road tired and ready to collapse upon arrival. Evelyn saw that and went on her own initiative to speak to the local traffic cop to make sure he wouldn't give us a ticket tho the free parking hadn't begun yet. ;) It looks like a palace, tea...

If you stay here you will see why all the revues are so good. The house has been decorated beautifully. Our room had a super view overlooking the town square in Birr. The room TV had more channels than I can remember anywhere in Ireland. Birr is a scenic midlands town. If you go during the Vintage week there will... More

Stayed 29th Sept., 2012. (Occasion- family wedding close-by).. From the moment my 82-year old mum and I arrived, the service was faultless.. From afternoon tea on arrival, to full Irish breakfast before we left, Maureen and Evelyn were exquisite hostesses.. Room and en-suite spotless; bed very comfy; decor etc to an extremely high standard and, more importantly, we're very appreciative... More

Very friendly and helpful hosts, Maureen and Evelyn, contributed to a delightful stay in beautifully updated accommodation. There was always time for a cup of tea or coffee and a chat. They were genuinely interested in ensuring my stay was a pleasant and memorable one. Highly recommended!

Emmet House is a great place to spend a night. The rooms are comfortable and clean, breakfast was excellent and the two women who run the place were very helpful and friendly. We really enjoyed our stay and can just recommend this B&B. It was one of the best B&Bs on our Ireland tour.
