we have stayed at Walcot B&B numerous time over the last few years and each time we get the same level of treatment. Expertly run and attention to detail is amazing. Overall it`s a wonderful place to enjoy a restful night or two.

Easily the best B&B in Ireland. Everything was perfect, charming, delicious and comfortable. Simply nothing to fault......and I am not easily pleased... Birr is a gem of a town and I am looking forward to bringing my grandson to Walcot soon to introduce him to all it has to offer.

We stayed here for 2 nights in June. We were the first to arrive so we were offered our choice of rooms. We picked room 1 with a queen size bed directly across from the public lounge/gathering room. The room is especially spacious with an extra large bathroom with a window overlooking the garden. Easy and large no hassle parking... More

Situated vis-a-vis Birr Castle. Big rooms beautifully decorated with antique furniture, a beautiful and big bathroom. Excellent breakfast in a stunning dinning room. It is one of the best B&Bs we ever stayed in. Very friendly and helpful staff

This is a perfect spot for exploring a wonderful region of Ireland. The house is gorgeously decorated and the hosts helpful with activity planning and restaurants. Directly opposite the entrance to Birr Castle and gardens - once of the best attractions we visited in all Ireland.

Walcot B&B offered by far the nicest room on our Irish road trip. The house is absolutely gorgeous and the rooms are immaculate. Location right opposite the castle was a huge bonus as well. We were really well looked after the whole time and did not really want to leave our room!

Absolute comfort and quaintness! Lovely smaller touches like bottled water and welcoming chocolates in the room, and a hot cross bun for breakfast! Loved the beautiful sitting room - perfect for chilling out. Great location beside Birr Castle which is well worth a visit to it's very informative museum and has lovely walks around the castle grounds. We will definitely... More

Staying at Walcot is a fabulous experience. The house is extremely elegant and furnished to the highest standard. Each room is beautifully decorated with gorgeous period furniture and fittings. The garden is delightful and is lovely place to sit in the late afternoon sun. We have stayed here a couple of times in different rooms, both were very comfortable and... More
