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

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!

Myself and my husband stayed here on Tuesday 19th of August and I cannot fault this B and B. It is an old house which has been very tastefully decorated with beautiful gardens to sit in. From the great welcome that we received from James on arrival to the goodbyes from Eilish the following morning plus everything in between it... More

Great bed and breakfast, less than five minutes walk from Birr Castle, Kelly's On the Green, and anything else you might need. Friendly and helpful staff, flexible check-out times, and an excellent full Irish breakfast every morning.

Only stayed one night in a twin room. The place was amazing, amazing decor throughout, lovely staff - would love to stay again if ever I'm in Ireland - truly wonderful and spotless, not a speck of dust anywhere. Breakfast full Irish was very tasty. Thank you :-)
