I couldn't have asked for a better experience, there is not many places like this for value, service, location and real quality. What a great location, 10 x mins walk to city centre, bus and train. What a lovely building with great rooms, gardens, views and history. The breakfast was 5 x star, great choices of fresh fruit, meats, cheeses,... More

A weekend break at a good rate was very enjoyable. Goodbreakfast and friendly staff. Even though I was a solo traveller I was given a nice spacious double room. A maid confirmed that 112 - 113 - and 114 were the best with City views.

In my view this is a very overpriced B and B. We paid nearly €120 and stayed in a small room which was up three flights of stairs. The room was a little grim and the bathroom was tiny. The common areas were fairly tatty and the dining room was very untidy.No sound proofing and an uncomfortable bed made for... More

Arrived early Saturday morning and luckily we were able to have breakfast. Good choice of cereals, fruit, yoghurt etc. I had the scrambled egg and salmon which was tasty although on the following 2 days I had the full cooked Irish which was good and I especially loved the white pudding. From the minute we arrived the staff were really... More

Simple accommodation is coupled with friendly staff and good service. The laid back atmosphere means People can use the closed restaurant as a space to relax in the evenings. Access to tea and coffee is supplies and there's nothing like it to start conversations in this communal space! Highlight of this guesthouse is the delicious breakfast. The simple enough buffet...

Lovely Guesthouse within walking distance of central Cork, Kent Train Station and St Lukes. This is a great place to stay if you are visiting Cork. The staff are particularly helpful and go the extra mile to make you enjoy the stay. Good breakfast selection, cooked to order.

Fifth visit. We've been for the last 5 years, in October, for the Guinness jazz festival. Good location on the edge of everything that's going on, as long as you are OK with a short walk uphill.

Well, the receptionist was very polite and nice, she recommended good pubs and bars, however the room is small and dark, absolutely looks different like on the photos. Waterpressure in the bathroom wasn't enough to enjoy the shower at all. Breakfast was good. After all, for one night is good, but if you want to stay a couple of days... More
