We spent a week in the adavnan lodge last summer. The gardens of birr castle are simply stunning, and we had free access throughout the week. We went for picnics with the kids most days and the weather was perfect. There is a little garden at the back of the lodge too which is lovely for picking herbs for dinner...

The Bothy Cottage at Birr Castle is definitely a cottage. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your cup of tea. However, it is a quaint, 100 year old, Irish cottage. The benefits are walking out your back door into some of the most gorgeous gardens you have ever walked in. And we were there in winter. We...

If we had any concerns it would be that the heat is only turned on for two hours in the morning and two in the evening. We were cold through the...

I stayed there two times (21 days altogether) in the past years with my family. We had 2 daughers and we needed a real house. The position of Birr in the middle of Ireland is perfect: you can go to Dublin by train from Tullamore and not worry about the traffic, you can reach Galway and other fantastic places within...

We stayed at the Bothy cottage in the summer of 2009. Other than a brief meeting with Lord Rosse as he dropped off the key, we spoke with no one from the castle all week. It was nice to arrive to fresh local bread and a few supplies. The cottage has three bedrooms, one of which has a working peat...
