Charming Georgian manor house situated next to Birr Castle. The sitting room is huge and comfortable and decorated in style of the house. James and Ailish were welcoming. The breakfast very good. The outside garden was beautiful. Birr Castle is across the street will a 150 garden, a must see!

This is quite simply the most stunning accommodation I have ever stayed in. Apart from the beauty and spaciousness of the house, the value for money is amazing When you stay here you know why this place cannot really be referred to as "a bed and breakfast" The beautiful period house has been magnificently restored and decorated. Luscious fabrics, luxury... More

Walcot is more like a boutique hotel than a B&B. There are 5 guest bedrooms, most bigger than an average hotel. There is also a sitting room, supplied with magazines etc for the use of guests. The rooms are beautifully decorated in a style that fits well with the age of the house. We only stayed there one night, but... More

My wife and I have just returned from a week at the Walcot and what a wonderful stay we had. We were overwhelmed by the warmth and generosity that James , Ailish and their staff showed us. The house and gardens were beautiful and the décor in all the rooms and bedrooms we seen were quite exquisite. We were treated... More

Excellent B&B in own grounds. Beautifully decorated throughout with excellent colour-schemes in the parts of the house we viewed. Bedroom was very comfortable and the breakfast excellent. Definitely a great place to stay in Birr.

Myself and my wife "escaped" for a night, and happily had come across Walcot B&B on Tripadvisor. It is a beautiful town-house, tastefully decorated by Ailish (hope the spelling is correct) who owns the house with her husband James. The room was lovely and comfortable decorated very much in keeping with the house. James had organised a room with a... More

I had the pleasure of staying in Walcott B&B whilst visiting friends last month. From the warm welcome to the beautiful rooms Walcott has to offer my stay was perfect. The breakfast and selection provided was mouth watering and delicious. The grounds Walcott are situated on provide a relaxing and peaceful environment for anyone to stay in. I thoroughly enjoyed...

Just back from a really lovely stay at Walcott B&B, this place is something very special, certainly not your average B&B! We received such a warm welcome as we were shown to our beautiful room, it felt like we were in a boutique hotel! Just fab! Centrally located in Birr with plenty of parking, we'll certainly be booking in again!,

We had the family room which consists of 2 bedrooms and a bathroom which was tastefully decorated and had one tv in the adult part as the other room a twin had just the beds. The bathroom just had a shower and really could do with adequate ventilation as... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the lovely Walcot B&B in Birr. It's in a old house in a quiet location just off the historic Mall in the town and just across the road from Birr Castle. Our bedroom was very big with lovely decor. The breakfast room was also very bright and spacious. There was a good choice for... More
