Our first Irish Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We completely loved this house. I picked Birr based on its central location for day trips for our week there. The house was exactly as described and perfect!!! The host met us out when we arrived and was so sweet and let my dad pay for the house the day before we left. (Don't think that would happen in the states) The house had everything you may need to be comfortable for a week or more. We were able to walk the entire town. The castle was right down the street. Their B&B was lovely and she invited us in to use the Wifi. We are going back to Ireland this summer but staying on the coast this time. I would not hesitate to stay in this cottage again. You won't be disappointed!!! (We actually stayed here in August 2015, not 2016......TA would not let me go back that far)

Great House

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything I had hoped it to be. We were a party of four adults in Birr for a wedding.

The hosts were great people and so helpful with all our needs. The house was clean, relaxing and has

everything that you could possibly need. You can walk to restaurants, the bank and the supermarket.

We especially enjoyed Spinner's restaurant, good food and nice atmosphere. We would definitely come

back again. It was great.

Cottage was extremely comfortable, conveniently situated for tourist attractions and eating places. The 'host' family were very friendly and obliging. Enjoyed our stay very much.

A week in Birr

  • 5 of 5

Brenda and myself, two retired teachers, found this home absolutely lovely! It was beautifully furnished and wonderfully comfortable. We took day trips in every direction for the week we were there, and it was really nice to not have to pack up and move every night. We loved exploring the town and were able to walk to pubs and shopping in the town center. We also took a day just to stay in and catch up on laundry and letter writing. Eilish and James were very helpful and made sure we had tea and milk when we arrived. I highly recommend Walcot Lodge!

Highly Recommend!

  • 4 of 5

Great place to stay if you are exploring the county. We took day trips in every direction and ended our days here. Very nice accommodations! Owners are fantastic and very friendly! There is a great pub (Kellys on the Green) just a couple minutes walk away to have a couple pints to wind down for the evening. We would definitely consider staying here again if we return to Ireland!!
