Lovely working cattle farm, beautifully appointed Farmhouse. Each roomy bedroom comes complete with it's in room private lavatory, Well done linens exactly as pictured. Decorative Gardens outside the many bay windows in each of the common rooms, separate breakfast rooms for each guest. The owner is a veritable delight, cheerfully flitting about seeing to her guests needs. Lovely cook as... More

My wife and I stayed here last week. It is very comfortable, warm, clean and surrounded by good quality farmland. Our breakfast was excellent. We were warmly welcomed and our host paid great attention to detail. We could not fault this B & B in any way. Marks. 10 out of 10.

We were there one night on a farm with wonderful view over the countryside. The beds were good and so was the breakfast and the host. Must visit place if you are in the west. Short distance from Birr where you can find good quality dining and only about an hour and a half from Dublin.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by Carmel and John. Breakfast each morning was of a very high standard with good quality coffee! Excellent price, beautiful location and would stay again.

My 80 year old mother, 12 year old daughter and I stayed at The Ring Farmhouse for one night this spring. Carmel greeted us warmly and welcomed us to the farm. She went so far as to provide cold medicine for a bad head cold that had set it that afternoon and then an additional dose the following morning -... More

We have stayed there in Mid May 2014 with my wife and 4 year old daughter. The place is close enough to the town yet it has it's own farm space so you feel as if you are away in the country. The host was very friendly and the room quality was above the expected BnB standart. The farm setting... More

I am delighted to have stayed in the Ring Farmhouse during our short trip to the Midlands. Carmel, the hostess, and the Carroll family made us feel very welcome and at home. The room was comfortable and immaculately clean. It was a nice touch to be able to walk around the farm and come back to the kitchen for tea... More

Carmel and John are lovely people, warm and great to chat with. Amidst lush green fields, Birr is a nice place to stop by and relax in the countryside. Clean, comfortable rooms and fresh country air - what a retreat!

What a find this place is! Set into the countryside like a little jewel, this haven of tranquility is just a short step away from the busyness of Birr town and only a few miles from the loveliness of the Slieve Blooms. Myself and my elderly mother and aunt were received with great hospitality and shown into our impeccably-ordered family... More
