Birr Airfield is an airport located 1 NM (1.9 km; 1.2 mi) south of the town of Birr in County Offaly in Ireland. It was originally called Birr View Air Strip. The area fort many years has been closely linked with aviation, dating from the time of the British Army air strip which was very near the present air field.
The Ormand Flying Club has been in operation at Birr Airfield for over 30 years. The club is a Registered Training Facility for the new JAR PPL Licence. The airfield boasts one landing strip which is orientated north/south. Recent construction of a hangar allows overnight storage of aircraft with avgas and mogas facilities on site.
Open to the public, however prior permission is required.
