This was out first time staying in The County Arms. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms are spacious and very comfortable. The dinner in the restaurant has a great variety and the food is delicious. We stayed when the wedding fair was on and the room was set up beautifully. Looking forward to returning again.

Staff very nice and helpful. Rooms very nice, spacious, and comfortable. Experienced some noisy behaviour from late night revelers as they made their way to bed. In no way was this the hotel's fault, but maybe some increased nighttime security presence might help. Food quality very good and good value. Beer selection should be expanded. Swimming pool very nice. Great... More

Check in and out was swift and polite. Rooms were lovely, spacious and clean. Never had the breakfast as the night before was too good! Ample parking. A nice walk from the town and a garage shop with Subway next door. Vending machine with just drinks on ground floor.

The building and grounds are impressive and it's easy to see why their marketing strategy is aimed towards the local trade for Weddings, Anniversaries, Club Events and Celebrations. So the different requirements of the Tourist are not a priority - no matter as the accommodation is comfortable and the Staff (particularly the evening restaurant staff) are friendly and efficient.

Nice hotel. Rooms clean and spacious. Lunch in the bar was lovely. Dinner in the restaurant had a great choice and was plentiful. Service was excellent. The staff are a credit to this hotel. Breakfast was very basic (no pastries, croissants etc) but was fine. Would reccommend this hotel for a value break.

Hotel looks like it was a nice old country house once with added on wings for hotel rooms. So good spot for wedding pictures and easy to find in relation to the town - even if roads leading to Birr are another story! Check in at 2pm is a fallacy and you'll be shrugged at if you complain. Once we... More
