Sleeps 4 with two main bedrooms, each with double bed , and a large, bright, open-plan living/dining room. It has period features, open fireplaces, a stove and high ceilings. Very well suited to families with young children or couples looking for a place to relax and rewind.

All shops, restaurants and pubs are only a few hundred metres walk away but bicycles can be arranged if you want to explore further. Birr is a friendly Historic town, a very central location for touring Ireland. The Slieve Bloom mountains are a 15 minute drive away (1 hour bike ride) with 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.
