I had cause to visit this part of the world for a wedding and was too disorganised to secure a room in the hotel everyone else was staying in - for once it paid off! Lovely house run by lovely people. I was late in arrival and was welcomed by the lady of the house who showed me to my... More

what a warm welcoming house and people. the room was very comfortable with a view of the garden. The bathroom was spacious and well equipped. Breakfast was served in a lovely dining room and was excellent. The service was friendly and attentive without being intrusive. I would highly recommend Walcot Bed and Breakfast.

This B&B was absolutely beautiful. The decor of the house, bedrooms, common areas was just stunning. The bedroom was a spacious, well heated and quiet. The B&B itself is in a perfect location, a stones throw from Birr Castle and only 2-3 minute walk into the town. The breakfast the next day was lovely too. I am normally a little... More

I am still in awe of this elegant home. The story of its restoration is in and of itself remarkable. But the kindness of our hostess and her personable explanations of the home's history and her community, will ever endear this place to me. The morning meal offered great variety and the wait staff as well was charming. Antiques and... More

Room was amazing with a big four poster bed. There were lovely gardens and a common room to read etc. Very grand place. The breakfast was so nice and the location of the hotel couldnt be better, right beside Birr castle.

We were stunned to find that we had a lovely room with a large 4 poster bed, antique furniture and a large en-suite with shower. The walcot is a stunning house in lovely grounds, it is very central situated two minutes walk from the Birr Castle and five minutes walk from the town centre. The staff are very friendly and...

I can't recommend this place enough, gorgeous décor really in keeping with the period. Lovely linens and towels, great breakfast in a stunning dining room - felt like a queen. The owners were charming and helpful. If this place doesn't win the best B&B in Ireland I'll eat my hat.

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.
