This lovely BB is a beautiful georgian House, plenty of charme. Rooms are fantastic , as well as The dining room where a great breakfast is served every morning. The couple who runs this incredible place it will make you feel at home. I wish we could stay more.

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 :-)

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
