Just returned from dining at this restaurant. Dined in a very warm and comfortable room with a roaring fire. Lots of easy chairs and welcoming staff . I had a club sandwich which was very tasty and my husband enjoyed his home made burger with a brioche roll. He later remarked on it being the best burger he has eaten.... More

My husband and I stayed at the Stables Townhouse in late September 2016. The town of Birr is an excellent site for walking and relaxing - as is the Stables Townhouse. Our room overlooked Oxmantown Mall. It was large, well appointed and spotlessly neat and relaxing. We had a lunch and breakfasts that were extremely good. We received a warm... More

We were greeted warmly and taken to our room, which was really beautifuly decorated and overlooking the courtyard. We had a look around the shop at the back which I had read about. It was very interesting... More

A beautiful building, in a lovely town, with spacious rooms, ensuite, courteous host and a breakfast to keep you going all day. Venture into town for dinner or stroll to Birr Castle and gardens in under 5 minutes. Its hard to imagine anything better than The Stables.

Love this cafe and restaurant. Great atmosphere and good food followed by very good, quick service. Delicious variety of sandwiches and a varied menu to tease anyone's pallate. Go there very often with friends and family. You als get a stamp on their card so you get a free meal after so many visits.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Stables Guesthouse. Very friendly staff, a few small issues with the cleanliness of the room but nothing too major. Had a very nice breakfast and the bed was really comfy. We would stay again!

We fell in love with the Stables the moment we arrived. The house is beautiful and the rooms and decor are so luxurious we felt like we were in Downton Abbey! The lady who met us on arrival took our bags to the room, and showed us around. The bed was so comfy and soft just how we like it.... More

My friends and I go there every Friday for brunch after an exhausting session of Aquarobics in Birr, the public pool. The food is always tasty and well served. The staff are very accomodating and pleasant. There is always a stream of diners, so that speaks for itself. If one has a sweet tooth, there is an array of cakes... More
