We stayed there for the Irish Redhead convention. I've stayed in quite a few B&B's before but this one is definately the cream of the crop, in my opinion. I had read reviews about how kind and friendly Barbara and Mike were and they were all spot on. The place is very clean, the rooms are quite large and comfortable,...

I've stayed here several times now because of the warm welcome from the lovely Barbara & Mike - they can't do enough for you, from collecting you from the airport to plying you with wine & food and the breakfasts will see you through until dinner. It's a few minutes walk to Crosshaven, the rooms are large and comfortable and...

Great place to stay. This was myself and my boyfriends second year staying at Wits End with Barbara and Mike. They are so welcoming and it feels like a home away from home. Breakfast is always great and they are great for chatting and having a laugh with. Highly recommend a visit.

Barbara and Mike instantly made us feel at home upon our arrival and couldn't of done anymore to make our stay any better. The view from the private 1st floor sitting room was spectacular.

Guest rooms are located on the first and second floors with a comfortable first floor lounge looking over Cork harbour towards the town of Cobh. The full Irish breakfast is phenomenal and will keep you...
