The Maltings
Ranked #2 of 3 Hotels in Birr
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 26, 2005

This is a wonderful little hotel in a great little town. Birr is a great way to see the "real Ireland." The rooms are about normal size for what you would expect in an American hotel, with GREAT water pressure in the shower. Everything was very clean and the bed was comfortable. This place was also very quiet and restful. The breakfast area is wonderful, especially if you can get a seat in the little conservatory overlooking the river. Breakfast was very good, and dinner was good. There is a great little pub across the street, Cavanaughs (I think), and a lot of good restaurants within very close walking distance.

I would highly recommmend The Maltings.

We found it by accident, stayed two extra days, and only left to catch our flight. Nest time I'm bringing a fishing pole. Luckily we got there in the off season and had our pick of seats in the dinning room. Breakfast in the bay overlooking the river made you want to eat twice. Hope we can get back there soon.

Gorgeous little Irish town, beautiful surroundings and great value. The Maltings is run by one of the nicest families i have met, you get a real feel for the friendly people in this country. Set on a river and adjacent to the historic Birr Castle, The Maltings is a two minute walk from everything, and filled with character! A true experience of Irish hospitality, that i cannot wait to revisit!

As a group of anything between 8 & 15 golfers we stay at 'The Maltings' which gives us easy access to the local golf courses at Birr, Tullamore, Esker Hills, Roscrea & Portumna. Friendly service which is second to none, excellent bar, close to the town's local pubs and a full Irish breakfast to start the day, well, that works for us. Very highly recommended

stone building looks good from outside but unsympathetically restored and a bit soulless inside, owner is paid by state to communally house refugees/immigrants next door, you get some Nigerian culture along with the irish.

What a charming Guest House/hotel. A stone, two story building formerly used to hold hops for the making of Guiness. Right next to Birr Castle (with its fantastic gardens!) Located right on a small river with falls, with cute pub and excellent restraurant, we couldn't have been more pleased. At E60 double including full breakfast and tea/coffee with cookies etc in room - what value! Within easy walking distance of town square and Birr Castle. With caring and personalized service, this is a hidden jewel. Much quieter than Dooleys on the square. Don't miss this lovely place as well as the Midlands of Ireland.
