    The central location, the enthusiastic welcome, the facilities, the comfortable bed, the tasty and copious breakfast - all were excellent. This is definitely a B&B that we would return to and would have no hesitation in recommending.

    Handy for visiting Birr castle and demesne with the Great Telescope..Like others locally there are no singles rooms. A bit old fashioned but acceptable.No home-baked cake or coffee on arrival though did get an extra cuppa before catching midday bus.

    Maureen made us feel most welcome and served refreshments when we arrived after a long day of touring. The facility is up to date and comfortable, with a good breakfast. The location was very convenient and parking was not a problem.

    Emmet House sits on the Town Square with parking adjacent to the B&B. I was there on a weekend and had no problem with parking.
