Award for Birr Castle

30 mins drive from Fuchsia Lane Farm!

As you all know we are big fans of Birr Castle and Demesne here at Fuchsia  Lane Farm Self Catering.  We were delighted to read the good news that it was recently awarded as one of the Best Visitor Attractions in the country in the Irish Independent Reader Travel Awards 2022. Being placed 4th in a list of amazing places to visit is a great achievement  and well done to everyone involved.

Birr Castle is just 30 mins drive from our cottages and is the perfect location for a great family day with walks, nature, science and acres of space awaiting you.  The town of Birr has great coffe shops and eateries and you will be spoiled for choice.  So put it on your list of one of your things to do here!

During 2022 there are a range of family activities and events planned, including over St Patrick’s Weekend March 17 – 20, the famous Easter Egg Hunt on Easter Sunday and Monday April 17 and 18
