My 80 year old mother, 12 year old daughter and I stayed at The Ring Farmhouse for one night this spring. Carmel greeted us warmly and welcomed us to the farm. She went so far as to provide cold medicine for a bad head cold that had set it that afternoon and then an additional dose the following morning -... More

Carmel and John are lovely people, warm and great to chat with. Amidst lush green fields, Birr is a nice place to stop by and relax in the countryside. Clean, comfortable rooms and fresh country air - what a retreat!

What a find this place is! Set into the countryside like a little jewel, this haven of tranquility is just a short step away from the busyness of Birr town and only a few miles from the loveliness of the Slieve Blooms. Myself and my elderly mother and aunt were received with great hospitality and shown into our impeccably-ordered family... More

We have just returned from another stay at The Ring Farmhouse and found it to be as good as it has been on previous occasions. You always receive a really warm welcome from the hostess Carmel, who goes to great lengths to ensure that not only is your stay at The Ring relaxing but that you are able to fully... More
