“Oh My What a Treat!!!”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

We stayed at the Walcot B&B birr and found it really exceptional. The home is wonderful, each room is tastefully done. The location is great and it would make a wonderful base to use for the midlands. By far the nicest of any of the B&B's we have stayed in Ireland

We both highly recommend you check this B & B out. For sure you will be as delighted as we were.

Happy Traveling

The hosts were wonderful, breakfast very substantial and rooms just delightful. I loved the sitting room which gave me some space from travelling companions to just sit and read. The location was so handy for pubs and the high street. so quiet and peaceful and has off street parking.

Room Tip: The twin room has the most amazing bath tub!

This was a lovely B&B and the location is great in Birr. We arrived and then had to change our plans traveling to another part of Ireland due to gale force weather and the proprietoress recommended an alternative part of Ireland for us to visit and allowed us to use their business computer for several hours to locate and secure new acommodations. Her recommedation was great and we are most grateful. This B&B is lovely and the warmth and service top notch!

Walcott B&B is a unique experience. The house itself is among the most beautiful and periodic in the Georgian town of Birr. Each room is nicer than the next with incredible window dressing and exquisite furniture, it is more than a B&B it is an experience in luxury living. Combined with the professional, personable and friendly service, this is one not to miss!! Conveniently located beside the world famous Birr Castle, it is not even 5 minutes walk to the entrance. Indulge and enjoy!! Ohhhh the breakfasts are soooo good!!

We stayed for 1 night , our second visit, to this lovely home, with its lovely decore, antique furnishings,sitting room with fireplace,and great walled garden and private car park.Price has gone up from our first visit 5 yrs before, but worth it, the breakfast in the dining room with crystal chandeleers makes it all worthwhile. Across the street from Birr Castle, walking distance to shops and pubs.Will stay again, highly recommended!

  • Liked — decor, breakfast, location

A beautifully maintained Georgian house, with a walled garden, grand drive and safe parking - minutes from the town centre.
We were more than pleasantly surprised to find this lovely B&B. With its sumptuous bedrooms which were tastefully decorated and spacious. Elegant dining area - breakfast at a giant mahogany table to seat a dozen very comfortably.
We would also highly recommend Dooleys restaurant for an exceptional evening meal at a very reasonable price.
We will no doubt have to do it all again soon,

  • Liked — The standard of decor.
  • Disliked — Could have been a little warmer.
