Good welcome Very clean Excellent B&B Good advice Very good irish breakfast We recommend this B&B

We had an absolutely wonderful stay! Tom was so helpful with tips, maps and information about things to do in the area and the grounds of the bed and breakfast itself are beautiful. Our room was clean and cozy with a queen bed, closet space for our things and a spacious bathroom. Breakfast was wonderful with a lot of tasty choices made fresh! We had a great time and highly recommend staying at Birchwood!

It is a very nice location whit a great service.
