Although this is an older building, it gets the essentials right: very comfortable bed, adequate bathroom (for its price range), range of tasty breakfast options (and nice room with view on the stream); quiet location; good wifi. The seating is a nice touch, although there is no desk to work at. The weather was around freezing with sometimes strong winds;... More

I stayed here while i was working in Birr. It was a last minute booking. On arrival the staff couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. This was a beautiful guest house. I will be staying here the next time I'm working in Birr.

We stayed here for one night on our way back to Dublin. It is a delightful historic town and The Maltings was an excellent choice. The building has been very well renovated but retains lots of character and the rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. It was also very peaceful and quiet.

Good B&B, with a hotel feel, in charming Birr. Set on a little stream, an interesting old storehouse for malt for Guinness. Rooms very nice, modern and clean. Ask for one upstairs looking out over the stream! Hostess Mauve very charming, warm and helpful, liked her. She recommended the Thatch for dinner, which was good, and walking the gardens at... More

Her breakfast is first class, with... More

Unbelievable! From the moment we walked in, we could not believe our luck. We had booked this on line not knowing what to expect. We were so surprised we had found this beautiful spot beside a stream where we could actually have a picnic beside a castle. Our room was so comfortable and breakfast came with a menu! We cannot...

We booked a last minute night away and chose Birr on the spur of the moment. We were lucky to get the last room available - a triple. When we arrived, Maeve reduced the charge to the double room rate as we were a couple, a very kind gesture. The accommodation is excellent - clean, comfortable and well supplied. The... More

I stayed with my two sisters and my two sisters-in-law in the Maltings for two nights. We were given a warm welcome by the owner (apologies for forgetting the name) when we arrived and greeted with a big smile each morning when we went down for breakfast. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. The bedrooms and the breakfast room... More
