“Taste buds left spinning after wonderful meal!”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

Just passing through Birr and noticed Spinners. Tastefully decorated outside and inside more so. A beautiful courtyard that traps the sun is the main feature here and keeps the little ones happy while waiting. My vegetarian Moroccan Harira was delicious and himself got a huge slab of steak! And a side of buttered peas with bacon (this made him very excited) all fresh and made to order. The staff were attentive, capable, friendly and we even met owner which was a nice touch. Will definitely be back for more.

“Wonderful stay :-)”
Reviewed August 2, 2014

The accomdation was top class, clean, comfortable, spacious and modern. We met several staff, all very friendly and courteous, in particular the owner was a gentleman. He was helpful, warm and welcoming. The setting was lovely, right beside Birr Castle. The renovation on the building has been tastefully done and to a high standard. The breakfast was delicious, we both had a full Irish. Definately would recommend and we plan to return.

“So good we went back twice”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We had stayed at Spinners under different management. This trip we stayed elsewhere and went to Spinner's for dinner because we heard the management had changed. All I can say is that the food was so well prepared, fresh, good, and innovative that we went back for a second night. The owner was very attentive and friendly and obviously is committed to making this a success. A very reasonable menu and prices, beautifully redecorated spaces. Can't wait to come back and actually stay in the recently renovated rooms.

“Average”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Visited the restaurant on Mothers Day 2014.Was looking forward to a nice meal with my mother.We left very dissapointed.Portions were tiny! No potatoes or veg served with the main course which consisted of a duck breast for me and a lamb fillet for my mother.I got a spoonful of red cabbage and a tiny roast potato.My mother got a spoonful of potato gratin and spinach.Main courses cost €25!!! No atmosphere in the restaurant whatsoever! Decor is the best thing about the place . Won't be returning...
