Comfortable, elegant, single canopy beds with a non-suite bathroom. Superb breakfasts, served 'til 11.30 am.

Le logement

Birr is a lovely heritage town with much to see and enjoy, and well worth visiting and staying for more than one night! Being in the 'Centre of the Universe' - in the heart of the country, tourists have used Brendan House and Tin Jug Studio as a special place to stay whilst visiting all in and around the town, and for further explorations in the region and beyond. Please see our website for information on Brendan House & Tin Jug Studio. Elegant and 'artsy' in the heart of Birr! We have a four-poster bedroom for two people and two single bedrooms with canopy beds in our Georgian townhouse. In the mornings, a delicious, healthy and hearty breakfast is served to the room or beside the drawing room fire. Our arts studio in the courtyard garden is available at certain times of the year to tourists and visitors, for semi-self-catering accommodation at very reasonable rates.

Accès des voyageurs

The antique four-poster room and the two single rooms are within the guest wing of the Georgian townhouse, with its 'tented' corridor, where there is a silver tray set for guests to make herbal tea at any time. The drawing room is also available to guests. Breakfasts are served in courses to the rooms but occasionally, served in our dining room. For people staying in the studio, the healthy Breakfast Basket is brought to the gallery.

Échanges avec les voyageurs

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 or regional attractions by small bus...the choice is yours.

Birr has a charming theatre with a high standard of varied entertainments. Check out Birr Theatre & Arts Centre for the current programme. There is an assortment of arts festivals here, with a new one this year! The Birr Festival of Music & Voice will run from the 26th - 28th May. A superb programme will begin with Bruno Caproni (baritone) and Julian Evans (pianist). After this, Scripts, Ireland's Playwriting Festival runs from the 9th - 16th July; closely followed by the 50th Birr Vintage Week & Arts Festival in early August; the OFFline Film Festival in October and then Hullabaloo Children's Arts Festival. And as if that isn't enough for one small town, here at Tin Jug Studio the Irish Latin American Film Festival (Dublin and Birr) will have film screenings on the 2nd and 3rd May. (We hosted the Cuban Ambassador and his wife in 2014, for the launch of the Cuban themed film screenings that year.) During Seachtain na Gaeilge in March, we have various Irish language events and gatherings. Apart from the tranquil gardens of Birr Castle Demesne and fascinating Historic Science Centre, visitors can take a self-guided tour of the Famous & Notables of Birr Trail. Launched by the actor Des Keogh in 2016, there are 25 plaques on buildings and structures along this one of two town tours. The FAN Trail celebrates the remarkable people of past eras whose achievements and their significance locally, nationally and internationally, had mostly been lost in the mists of memory.

Lovely welcoming host and amazing breakfast. Very central location in Birr and lots of great ideas from Rosalind of local sites and walks.

How kind of you, many thanks! Please return sometime - so much to see around here. From the boggy beautiful low-lands to our serene Slieve Bloom heights, and art, sculpture and culture, in ancient places and wild spaces. Righto Caroline - that's my tempting advertisement to persuade you to return and explore! Best wishes. R

Rosalind is a very nurturing host from the great communication before we arrived to little touches in the space candles up the stairs :) The breakfast was a culinary delight !!! We stayed in the art studio , which is an art studio ! with lots of paintings and the like . There is a sweet little cooking stove, good enough to heat up my husbands elaborate porridge. The only thing to be aware of that the beds in the art studio are very narrow and would not suit a larger person:)

Hello Nicola, thank you for your lovely review! Yes, you are right, I should be more specific - it had not occurred to me as I term them 'divans' not beds. But not everyone will know what I mean. Oh...but did you find them comfortable enough, apart from the narrowness? I really hope you and your tall husband slept well and didn't land on the floor! Those platforms/divans were once part of our much travelled Granny Thompson's Dolls Exhibition. The tall, hand-stitched skinny characters showing fashions through the ages, were placed in furnished settings. The platforms were part of the dismantle-able (a word!?) structures, with lighting and accessories - little stage sets - with informative social and costume histories. And we had music playing in the background - all rather magical. Now, the platforms are so very adaptable for our working arts studio too as I can move and stack the sections. But I do want people to be very comfortable - bohemian though it is. So, once again, I really appreciate your suggestion. Until I can update my listings, I will indeed make sure to let people know. Kind regards, Rosalind

An 'occasional' writer, artist/designer with an arts studio. I have lived and worked in England and New York but now very happily settled back in Ireland. (Just to mention, by way of some explanation on sometimes slow response, that I possess only an out of date laptop and no Smart Phone!) Rx
