The elegant bedroom, with its own wash-handbasin and the beautiful bathroom with the second-oldest bath in Birr. The two single rooms are within the guest wing of the Georgian townhouse and in the 'tented' corridor, there is a silver tray set for guests to make herbal tea at any time. The drawing room is also available to guests.
Interaction with Guests
As little, or more - just as guests prefer! The opportunity is for a very peaceful stay without need for too much chat if that is not wished for. Or, we can arrange for guided walks in the hills, and guided tours and transport to traditional music evenings by small bus...the choice is yours.
Birr is a charming Georgian Heritage town, with the impressive attraction of Birr Castle Gardens and Historic Science Centre. There are some lovely cafés to sit and write or read in, over coffees or lunches. A tranquil river walk, from the house is very pleasant in the evenings, or hire a bike and tour around. The little theatre has a very good seasonal programme - take a look at the Birr Theatre & Arts Centre website. (Please look at the Brendan House listing for some more descriptions, in the meantime.)
Busses come via Birr from Dublin and Galway and Limerick. Apart from Kearns and Bus Eireann, the other option is trains to Tullamore or Roscrea, which may link in to bus timetables.

No smoking in the bedrooms, but in the drawing room is fine - preferably cigars only!
