Perfect way to end a vacation
From the private, gated entrance to the formal gardens and beautiful, enchanting nature walks, we were very happy we booked Bothy. While the cottage could use an update, it was clean and cozy. The peat fires on the chilly nights made it so inviting to come home to after a long day of sightseeing. Our hosts were warm and friendly. We would definitely recommend this property and hope to stay here again some day.
We never used our car for the entire week. We enjoyed the warm turf fireplace and cozy cottage.
Of course the most enjoyable part was the unlimited experience of the entire grounds and gardens.
Thanks for sharing this historic place.
Thank you for writing such a lovely review., and it was a pleasure to meet you. The Demesne was at its best and I'm so glad you enjoyed it. It is still looking very good - maybe you will come back sometime and see it at another time of year. The Autumn, too, is lovely.
Beautiful & cozy
Just an all round wonderful stay. The cottage was warm and cozy and felt like a little home away from home. The people in Birr were very friendly and we can’t wait until we can make it back.
Thanks for everything.
We loved our stay in the Brophy, it was cozy and comfortable.
We enjoyed our trip to Ireland and staying in the Brophy on Birr Castle grounds was the highlight of our stay. Everyday we enjoyed walking down all the different paths on the grounds. We took a lot of pictures of our walks, to keep the memory of how beautiful the grounds are alive. Our stay incorporated hurricane Ophelia and the Brophy kept us comfy and warm. We look forward to returning to Ireland and the Brophy, in the future.
Thank you so much for your kind review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the Bothy . And I'm glad you got safely back after all the drama of Ophelia. Thank goodness it didnt do too much damage, though the Demesne was in an awful mess with branches all over the place - and you saw the big tree down opposite the drive.
It would be lovely to have you back here again.
Located in the garden Birr Castle Demesne, and Science Centre Museum. Home of the great telescope of the 3rd Earl of Rosse, 1845.
