Nestled in the Heritage Town of Birr, the hotel brings visitors into the well-preserved Georgian town in Ireland and has rightfully been named as the historic centre of the island.

Guests are welcomed to large en suite bedrooms, kitted out with wooden furnishings and king-size beds, some offering views over the 200-year-old walled gardens.
The Cookes Restaurant serves up hearty Irish dishes, prepared using fresh locally sourced produce, while Bar 62 offers light breakfasts and lunches along with an extensive list of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Tourists can also enjoy the leisure club or swim a few lengths in the indoor heated swimming pool. There is also a fully equipped gym that offers the chance to spend built up energy over the day.
