We had the most wonderful stay at Emmet house. Its a stunning house with the kindest owners in the world. We felt so welcomed and were well looked after in every way. The breakfast was delicious and the location is so central. A walk around Birr castle is a must also!

Nice friendly welcome. Warm and cozy inside. A bit disappointed about the parking arrangements as I understood it was private parking but we actually had to just find a space in the public square outside. Smallish double bedroom but perfectly adequate. Nice irish breakfast. Good for our one night stay.

A wonderful if not quick stay at Emmet House. Maureen was very welcoming and lovely. We had a quick overnight to visit family & she was great. Offered to put out breakfast for our VERY early departure. And, when we left something behind, she was so kind to forward it along to us. We’ll see you again!

Birr was a last minute decision to visit. I couldn't be more happy about this decision. Birr turned out to be one of the highlights of my trip to Ireland. The Emmet House was beautiful and my accommodations were perfect. Maureen and Shirley are delightful hostess. I would highly recommend visiting Birr and The Emmet House to anyone.

Our hosess was fabulous and very accommodating. I have stayed in over 30 B&Bs throughout Ireland and must say this is one of the best! Definitely in the top 5. Highlights include location right in the town square, a great shower with excellent pressure, warm welcome and departure, and an adorable room with a 4 post bed and nice amenities. Great price for all of this!

Warm Welcome, wonderful stay.

My husband found this splendid B&B which more than lived up to its recommendations from others.

Very enjoyable stay in every respect. Delightful hosts, lovely room and excellent breakfast. Great location when exploring the area or when traveling to the west coast.

5.00

We loved the location and the hospitality!

5.00

We had a wonderful time. Emmet House is lovely and the hosts were gracious and very helpful. Birr is not a typical tourist destination. Birr Castle gardens and the Leviathan telescope and museum are truly hidden jewels of the midlands. Just blocks from Emmet House, these were the attractions that brought us there, but we would go back for the pleasant accommodations.

This was our favorite bed and breakfast of our whole vacation! Finally - outlets galore, washcloths, powerful shower, comfy beds, terrific breakfast, and super friendly hosts. I would recommend Emmet House to anyone.

The ladies I met (Evelyn and her daughter Margaret) were more than welcoming. It was like visiting with family friends it was so comfortable! Bedroom and bathroom were immaculately clean. Complimentary water was offered in a fridge in the hallway which was a really nice touch. I was even given a lift the following morning to my car which was at another venue, so kind. The ladies were more than accommodating and friendly. The house itself is quite beautiful and very centrally located. Highly recommend Emmet House and would definitely return if in the area again.

What a lovely place. Maureen and her Mum were so friendly and accommodating. Lovely hospitality and delicious breakfasts. Great location in the center of town but not noisy. The room was spotless and had beautiful decor as did the rest of the property. We were very impressed.

We had a wonderful time at Emmet House. The location was great. The food was delicious and the hosts very lovely people.

5.00

Excellent.

4.25

The only slight problem we had, which was my mistake, is that I forgot to remind my husband that we had paid a small deposit. The lady who took the payment on the morning isn't always there (probably not familiar with the system) and therefore we paid in full without the deposit being deducted.

Really enjoyable stay!! Fabulous spot! Like a mini hotel. Bed was lovely and comfortable..! We would certainly return if we were in Birr again.

5.00

Excellent b&b. Comfortable bed, great breakfast, and wonderful people!

From the moment you enter Emmet House, you are greeted with a warm welcome and you instantly feel at home. The elegant Georgian decor is also particularly charming. My room was fabulous and the attention to detail was remarkable. Both the bedroom and the bathroom were extremely spacious and absolutely immaculate. Emmet House is definitely one of the best places I have ever stayed in, and I would recommend it to anyone wishing to stay in Birr. It is undeniably excellent value for money too.

5.00

You walk in, and welcomed with open arms. The warmth of the staff, the kindness are second to none. On top of that, the rooms are in very high standard, clean, fresh and comfortable. by far the best experience in a B&B we have ever had. Will be coming back again
