There are many places to sit and relax and even an ideal location to have picnic if you like, if not there is a gorgeous café on the ground of the castle just as you pay to enter. With plenty of options for all of the family from guided tours, to learning the heritage of the castle and its surrounds to discovering the flora and fauna of the gardens. The Castle only opens to certain groups when there is permits given and then the family will one their doors to guests but it is a beauty to behold if you don’t get the opportunity to enter.
Why not plan your next adventure away to the midlands and on your way back from Birr Caste there is plenty to do from stopping off at Lough Boora Bog Lands or even Clonmacnoise and its famous round tower with its beautiful views right beside the beautiful River Shannon.
An extra bonus if you are planning a trip in September a Balloon Show happens in Birr Castle each year and is a spectacle to see and just take the sky in. It’s a must see if you are planning a trip to Athlone in the coming months, wither way you will be spoilt for choice.
