This is the place to stay when you travel from the south of Ireland to the north , as we did , and need to stop in between for a day or 2. The hotel is... 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.

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
