Wow...hands down the best B&B I've stayed at in Ireland and I have spent about 4 weeks in ones across the country. The house is absolutely amazing. It just oozes history and charm. Understated elegance everywhere you look. We were a mistake booking (they weren't supposed to open this early but booking.com messed up) and I am glad they honored... More

Staying at the Walcot was an absolute delight. Eilish and James are great hosts. The breakfast was the best on our trip with comfortable and beautiful rooms. Walking distance to Emmett Square and the shops, pubs and right across the street from Birr Castle.

I returned to Birr for the first time after more than 40 years and wanted to share a very special place from my childhood with my husband. We stayed at the Walcot Bed and Breakfast and couldn't have been happier. It was a lovely place, the room was comfortable, quiet and so clean. The owners made us feel very welcome... More

Six members of our family (from 10 to 70) stayed in this lovely manor house and each of us felt comfortable and pampered. It is beautifully furnished with quality antiques, exceptionally clean, and every need thoughtfully met without intrusion. The children enjoyed the spacious yard and gardens and the sitting and dining rooms were very elegant but not intimidating. We... More

Stayed for 1 night in a gorgeous room. The people were very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast was very tasty, and the location is wonderful. Would definitely recommend it and plan to go back soon!

By far the most lovely and peaceful place we stayed while on our 10 day trip through Ireland. The rooms were immaculate, comfortable, and extraordinarily well appointed. We had a family room and were delighted to find a door between the 2 twin beds and the queen bed - it was perfect! This B&B is right across the street from... More

My stay was magical. The accommodations were gorgeous, comfortable and peaceful. I got the best sleep of my trip there. As if the surroundings were not enough, our hostess was extraordinary and I have honestly never had a better breakfast experience!
