“Peace and quiet and only a mile from town”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

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 room which was spacious and well set out, with clean and comfortable furnishings - these passed the beady and critical eye of my 92 year old mother who is something of a connoiseur of comfy chairs!

This was at 6 p.m.
We made tea, just in time for Carmel to lead us into the conservatory overlooking the 40 acre round field with the beautiful black cattle. What a place to watch the sun setting ...

Returning from dinner in Birr about 8.30, we were immediately ushered into yet another lovely guest sitting room where Carmel gave us tea and cakes whilst we watched the Rose of Tralee contest!
We slept like logs.
Breakfast next day started with fresh baked scones followed by everything and anything else you could name.

What a shame we were just passing through. All three of us would have happily stayed in this wonderful establishment for much longer than one night.

We have just returned from another stay at The Ring Farmhouse and found it to be as good as it has been on previous occasions. You always receive a really warm welcome from the hostess Carmel, who goes to great lengths to ensure that not only is your stay at The Ring relaxing but that you are able to fully enjoy the local area. The rooms are both charming and comfortable and the the breakfast sets you up for the day.

Birr has alternative B&B and hotel options but The Ring has become our first choice for accommodation.
