The Bothy Cottage at Birr Castle is definitely a cottage. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your cup of tea. However, it is a quaint, 100 year old, Irish cottage. The benefits are walking out your back door into some of the most gorgeous gardens you have ever walked in. And we were there in winter. We... More

We stayed at the Bothy cottage in the summer of 2009. Other than a brief meeting with Lord Rosse as he dropped off the key, we spoke with no one from the castle all week. It was nice to arrive to fresh local bread and a few supplies. The cottage has three bedrooms, one of which has a working peat... More
