“Really special”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 4, 2009

The rooms were very large, clean and the showers had good water pressure. Betty is an absolute delight and the house is wonderful. What a treat after a long day of driving. Beds are large and comfortable, breakfast was cooked nicely. It is amazing more people have not posted reviews on TripAdvisor for this house, this is one of the best places we stayed in our entire trip! If your trip takes you to Birr or Kinnitty you really won't be able to find a better place to stay in this price range than the Aaron House.

This B&B was absolutely amazing. The kindness of Betty Grimes and her family was so much more than my seven friends and I expected. Not only was the house itself clean, inviting, cute, and perfect for a relaxing stay, but the hospitality of its owners far surpassed our expectations. We stayed a mere two nights but by the end, we found it hard to leave. At least without a warm hug from Betty and doing what we could to show our gratitude. I would recommend this B&B to anyone and everyone. A great value for an amazing time!

Aaron House Guest House
My husband ,myself and three friends spent two weeks at Aaron House during the World Titles of Down the Line Shooting. I can not speak highly enough of Betty & Michael Grimes and their family. The hospitality was excellent with every whim catered for from food to information to services. The rooms were spacious and clean and well maintained.

Just back from a couple of days attending a wedding in the castle @ Kinnity.

Hit gold with this B&B. Rooms were large clean and in excellent order.
Betty the owner was brilliant. Never intruding but always there to refill the coffee or to provide more toast when needed. Highly recommended.

We were looking around for a B&B near to Birr, Co Offaly and just chanced by Aaron House in Kinnitty. What a fabulous find! It is by far the best B&B we have stayed in and will definatley be back. Large clean rooms, everything we needed to make it a very comfortable stay. Beer, tea, coffee and soft drinks were available in the guests private lounge, the beer even being kept cold in a small fridge. The host, Betty and her husband were very welcoming and accomodating and even let us leave our trailer there for the day after we had checked out so that we could tour around during the day. The breakfast was excellant, again everything you could want and more and all beautifully presented.

  • Liked — The rooms were fantastic and the welcome second to none.
  • Disliked — Nothing - it was all great!
