This is such an incredible place! The rooms are stunning! My two sisters and I stayed in the Champagne room which was a beautiful ensuite room with a canopied king size bed and a coxy twin in a corner near the window. The breakfast toom is like going into Laura Ashley land with pink and white. The grounds are beautiful.... More

This B&B is gorgeous! I felt like I stepped back in time to another era with the high ceilings, gorgeous paintings that take up the whole wall and the beautiful tapestry throughout the house. There is plenty of seating outside to sit out and enjoy the beautiful landscape. Breakfast room is warm and inviting and there is a beautiful tree... More

We only got to spend one night with Olwen and Douglas in their beautiful Country house. I wished we had more time to stay longer. We were greeted at the door by their sweet and wonderful mascot, German Sheppard, Samson. You do have to make sure to follow the road up the hill and completely to the end to find... More

The B&B is not within walking distance of any restaurants or shops. It is in a beautiful country setting. Several places to sit and enjoy the view on the property. There were rabbits and foxes running through the grass. The fox came and laid outside the breakfast room in the morning waiting for the owners to through out the leftovers.... More

What a gem to find! Out in the countryside, but not far to drive, this B&B is filled with eye candy in every direction. I fell in love with the breakfast dining room on line, but in person it was even more spectacular. See photo. The room (only 6 in all) were all uniquely appointed and the sleeping was grand.... More

Quite the most charming and well appointed home that you ever wish to find, and finding may take a few minutes as it is well hidden off the main Blarney/ Tower road. But from the moment you drive down the driveway you will be captured and enchanted by the grounds, the individual rooms, the breakfast conservatory and by Olwen and... More

A senior couple plus a friend shared a huge triple room for three nights, and Maranatha couldn't have been a nicer place to stay. The room was bright, clean and spacious, the bathroom was clean and easy to access, and the breakfast was a great start to the days. One of our party had some lower intestinal problems, and the...

Quite simply, this was the most beautifully decorated B&B we stayed at in all of Ireland. Olwen, although with no formal training to speak of, poured her soul into the decor of this house and the results are outstanding. Along with the comfort of the room, the graciousness and hospitality of the owners, and the wonderful breakfast provided, this is... More

Our original B&B booking was with a different place in Blarney, but our reservations had to be cancelled on account of a personal time conflict with the host (Blarney Vale B&B, please see my review there as well since she was ever so helpful and kind) - HOWEVER, she took care of moving our arrangements to Maranatha Country House and...
