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

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

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
