We stayed here for 1 night recently. This B&B is in a good location - a 25 minute walk approx from the bus station. However, that is the only thing I liked about the place really. On entering, the hallway is quirky and colorful with some interesting pieces to look at but this did not extend to our room. Our... More

My, my. The artwork takes your breath away. The owner appears to be a collector of unsigned artworks and they are mostly wonderful (well you'd always have a few oddities in such a collection). The exterior gives you a subtle hint of the vibrancy inside. We could not ask for better and more helpful staff than the ladies here. Nothing... More

This facility was good, not great but was priced fairly. We stayed on the top floor which was not good with two suitcases. The bed was comfortable, the room was small and the bathroom was way to tiny. It was almost impossible to sit on the toilet. The breakfast was very good and the staff were very helpful.

Very quirky and interesting B&B. Unique character with eclectic artwork - fascinating. Delicious breakfast. Location is near the university and is about a 10 minute stroll to the city centre. Very helpful staff. Made us tea and gave us advice on the various restaurants. We were looking for Irish meals character and music. We got all three with Oliver Plunkett.... More

LOVED the art. The walls are covered in lots and lots of original works by various artists. Oils, acylics, sculptures.. I found myself browsing around the meeting room / hallway / dining room at one stage just admiring all the paintings. From a more practical point of view, I got a warm welcome from the lovely Clodagh, was given a... More

As mentioned by others, the welcome is warm and decor amazing. The owner collects eclectic art works and theatrical artefacts. Our room (15) at the back of the house, up a flight of stairs, was well appointed, quiet and very clean. The bathroom was large with a good shower and large whirlpool bath. Beautifully tiled. Situation is good, with a... More

It's a really pretty and cozy hotel. The rooms are big, with nice bathroom. Comfortable beds and friendly staff! Not far from city center with parking space! I would certainly visit it again! Cork is also a beautiful city to visit. Wish to have more days here
