Dooly's Hotel Review

This unpretentious country hotel began life as a coach house some 275 years ago and has retained its old-style homeliness. Floral patterns, open fires, and a relaxed welcome invite you in. It's in Birr's central square, and a five-minute walk from the castle. The bustling bar and coffee shop are popular with locals. For a more formal dining experience you could try the Emmet Room restaurant, where fish dishes such as medallions of monkfish or grilled salmon fillet with garlic potato are specialties alongside a selection of Italian offerings. Rooms have been refurbished to add some zest to this old staging post.
