We booked the "twin" room on a girlfriend driving tour of Ireland. Had a bit of trouble finding the place, but that has more to do with relying on gps instead of being prepared with a true map. The place is just as promised, and our ensuite room was spotless. Carmel offered breakfast as early as 8, and the table... More

A great base for experiencing the bucolic delights of Birr. I stayed here for a night during the week, and it was quite quiet. The owner was very polite and happy to help with my questions about the area (and an excellent cook). The building is on the site of a retired dairy farm, which was interesting to look around...

My wife and I stayed here last week. It is very comfortable, warm, clean and surrounded by good quality farmland. Our breakfast was excellent. We were warmly welcomed and our host paid great attention to detail. We could not fault this B & B in any way. Marks. 10 out of 10.

We were there one night on a farm with wonderful view over the countryside. The beds were good and so was the breakfast and the host. Must visit place if you are in the west. Short distance from Birr where you can find good quality dining and only about an hour and a half from Dublin.

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome by Carmel and John. Breakfast each morning was of a very high standard with good quality coffee! Excellent price, beautiful location and would stay again.

We have stayed there in Mid May 2014 with my wife and 4 year old daughter. The place is close enough to the town yet it has it's own farm space so you feel as if you are away in the country.

I am delighted to have stayed in the Ring Farmhouse during our short trip to the Midlands. Carmel, the hostess, and the Carroll family made us feel very welcome and at home.

Carmel and John are lovely people, warm and great to chat with. Amidst lush green fields, Birr is a nice place to stop by and relax in the countryside. Clean, comfortable rooms and fresh country air - what a retreat!
