Friendly welcome by humans and lassie dogs alike. Beautiful flowers. Lovely grounds for this old converted house. Lovely hearty breakfast. Peaceful sleep and yet not too far from the motorway. Looking forward to the scenic drive here amongst the mountains

Room at the top of the stairs! ... Room Spotlessly clean, greeted by host made to feel feel very welcome ... great location in the midlands on the Birr - Roscrea road. Breakfast great - fresh fruit, cereals, coffee, fry / eggs options, toast ... what more could a person need! :-) If you are looking for a place halfway... More

Once we had obliged we were greeted by the lovely owner, Veronica, who showed us to our room and then produced a fabulous pot of tea and biscuits in the lounge. Veronica is warm, friendly and extremely attentive... More

Mrs Minnock made us feel personally welcome to her fantastic home. She was very attentive and could not do enough for us - even booking our taxi's. The location is beautiful with Birr town just a couple of miles away. We visited during Birr's Vintage week which was great and very lively. The vintage cars and fancy dress was one... More

Have sampled Minnock's breakfast in their branch in Manama. The breakfast included all the standard components - juice cereal, cold meat, delicious bread etc., all served with a sense of humour. a thoroughly pleasant. Haven't sampled their bed though. That remains a treat to be anticipated.
