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

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...
