Very central area for touring Ireland. Almost all areas within reach of a day’s drive.

The property is on the edge of Birr, a small town with all town amenities -Restaurants, bars, shops, supermarkets and a theatre. The main attraction for many is that the property is situated at the gates of the grounds of Birr Castle Gardens which has a Science Gallery celebrating the Parsons family and the great telescope, once the largest in the world. There are occasional concerts in the Gothic Music Room of the Castle, which is open in the mornings (except Sundays) in May June July and August.

The Slieve Bloom mountains are a 15 minute drive away and are ideal for walking and gentle climbs in unspoilt forest and open scenery.

Very Special Hide-Away in a Corner Of Birr Castle Gardens

The Bothy is a cottage just behind the Formal Gardens. It is small but cosy, an old building which was once the house for the young gardeners. A door in the wall gives onto the Formal Gardens,  full of flowers in summer, and the whole Demesne is yours to walk around in the evenings. It sleeps 5. 1 bedroom with double bed, 1 with two single beds and the 3rd with 1 single bed. There is one bathroom. The kitchen is small but well equipped and next to the living room/dining room. It is within walking distance of the town, and also close to the Science Centre with its coffee shop and playground.  We don’t mind dogs either, so long as they are on the lead in the Demesne.

We let by the week from Saturday to Saturday, and the year round price per week is €490 euro.
