Spent one night here and the place felt almost like a hotel than a B&B. The look of the place was beautiful in an ideal location in the town. The owner was very friendly and very welcoming. Room was very clean and comfortable. A good nights rest was had. Breakfast was really good in the morning and set us up...

Got here very late one night and was welcomed by the owners. The room was spacious and clean offering a great nights sleep. Breakfast was excellent and had a great view sat next to the river. A really well run place to stay and will use it next time I visit Birr.

Recently spent a comfortable night in the Maltings, a very central accommodation in Birr. Situated next door to Birr Castle this is a pleasant B & B which was once a malting house for Guinness. A nice bonus in my large room was the soothing sound of the adjacent river as it tumbled over a small weir. Tea or coffee...

We stayed here on the bank hol Mon in Aug. We stopped over on our way to Cork. To say we were overwhelmed is an understatement. We have stayed in a few b&b's over the years but nothing like The Maltings. The rooms are large with en suites and are spotless. Ours overlooked the river which I think they all...

Lovely family run accomodation, rooms clean and comfortable, staff extremely friendly, I would definately recommend in fact looking as we speak to book up for October for the family. The Castele is right next door and the river runs past the wondow as you tuck into your full Irish breakfast.

This is a first class bed and breakfast. I cannot give the owners enough praise for what they offer. It was immaculately clean, incredibly comfortable. Plenty of space in the room. It was simply the perfect stay.

Situated next door to Birr Castle, this is very much a family run, welcoming B&B. On arrival we were greeted by a small baby crawling along the floor (one of the owner's Grandchildren) which set the tone for our stay. Our rooms were on the 3rd floor (no lift) and were both very large triple rooms, although we were a...

As a group of 5 competing in a world competition, we were spoiled by Maeve. The best away from home experience I ever had. A priceless experience. Maeve looked after our laundry, provided us with chairs and could not do enough for us. Thanks Maeve.
