A magnificent and unique experience of a grand Irish country home! Set in beautiful parkland gardens, the superbly presented and appointed home is resplendent in beauty and comfort. The breakfast room recalls memories of The Ritz! Olwen is a gracious and fun hostess. The breakfast was excellent. Situated conveniently on the outskirts of Blarney, Maranatha Country House provides a quiet,... More

Wonderful B&B in a country setting. Great hosts, clean rooms and beautifully decorated in Victorian style. My wife and I stayed in the Top Hat room pictured below. Excellent buffet style Irish breakfast incl. poached eggs, sausage, bacon, fruit, yogurt, and more.

This place is just heaven on earth. We only stayed one night 23 April 2015 but Olwen made us so welcome. the Top Hat Room, well say no more how romantic, not that we were celebrating. The Breakfast was superb and the conservatory was decorated beautifully. It is obvious that it is a labour of love for Olwen. Thank you... More

Warmly welcomed by the owner. The house is beautifully furnished with each bedroom quite unique. We had the Regal suite which boasted a massive four poster bed and circular jacuzzi bath. Breakfast in a lovely conservatory. Extremely good value for money. Highly recommend.

My fiance & I stayed here one night. We were the only guests. They actually weren't technically open but they let us stay. We met Sampson the dog. We booked the Regal suite. It was very nice. Kind of takes you back in time. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable. There was a hot tub and television, hair... More

What a wonderful place. We felt welcome the moment we stopped the car. A gorgeous country home with a beautiful setting and a huge elegant room. Excellent breakfast and Olwen was great with suggestions on where to go, what to do, where to eat. The Blarney House hotel pub was recommended and is a must for a great meal, pub... More

We only had one night stay at Marantha Country House but we found the accommodations were clean, quiet and very relaxing. It's located on the very top of a large hill, and the grounds are quite peaceful, beautiful and well kept. The owners were gracious, helpful and very hospitable. We stayed in the Lavender Room and would recommend it. Breakfast... More

Olwen and Doug are the perfect couple in a perfect place. This is our second time staying with them and they are just so gratious. From the moment we got there we were welcomed and given a fabulous room. We stayed two nights and they both were helpful in things to do, places to eat and just went out of... More

We stayed at Marantha for one night recently in the top hat room. The room was absolutely georgeous and spacious and good value for money. Olwen made us feel at home from the moment we arrived. The décor was beautiful, and the breakfast room was especially beautiful (as was the breakfast). If you need to stay in Blarney you would... More
