Really big lawn for the kids to play on. Really nice freshly cooked breakfast, as well as lots of other options. Tom is a great host who wants everyone to enjoy...

We loved our stay at Birchwood and Tom was extremely knowledgeable and helpful when it came to planning our days. The breakfasts were the best we had in all of Ireland! He truly goes out of his way to cater to his guests! Each morning he had placed fresh flowers in our bedroom vase along with two new bottles of...

Bathroom as well. I did have trouble with the matress which was somewhat uncomfortable (I could fell the springs) but found an...

Tom provided a really great breakfast including fresh orange juice, an Irish Breakfast, a variety of home-baked bread and cakes and fresh fruits as well as a cheese platter. The rooms were very clean and quiet. I would like to spend there some more days!

We stayed two nights at Birchwood while travelling with my family. Tom really was a great host, welcoming us with homemade cakes and always willing to provide useful advices about places to visit. The location is great, too, with a breathtaking view on the mountains. We wish we could have stayed longer there.

Staying 3 nights at the Birchwood Bed and Breakfast was the delight. A delightful house and grounds, beautiful rooms, quiet and the most splendid breakfasts. On arrival we were greeted by Tom the owner with cups of tea/coffee and homemade cakes which were a daily occurance on arrival back at the B&B. Tom was a wealth of information and made...
