Stopped off in Birr to See Birr castle and Birr telescope which in its time was the biggest in the world. It’s worth a visit. Went for lunch in Doolys hotel. What a surprise ordered hake with sundried tomatoes in citrus sauce accompanied by creamy mash,broccoli and puréed mix

Stayed here for one night the room was very clean and comfortable although a little small but on a Saturday night the night club is on it was pure mental torture to sleep with the noise and vibration as the room I stayed in was very close to the nite club it’s only for that

Stayed one night and cant fault anything. Excellent rate for B&B. Room was perfect with powerful shower. Ate in the bar and food was lovely. This is an old hotel and I thought it had great character. Will stay again.
