    Perfect location for me. A very special and unique place to stay. Definitely not your normal b&b. The owners and staff are great and very friendly and the breakfast was wonderful with plenty of choice. I would highly recommend this place for a romantic time away from it all, and it would be a wonderful place for dinner, if the... More

    This was by far my favorite place we stayed last week. The house was beautiful, the historical pieces they have are amazing, they had anything you needed and were very warm and friendly. The rooms were amazing and each one has its own decor. Very close to blarney castle. They recommended a great pub with excellent food right down the... More

    The rooms were so beautiful. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous. It was very peaceful. I wish we could have spent more time here. Breakfast was good--the scones were exceptional.The breakfast room was beautiful, just like the pictures on their website. The host was very friendly.

    We arrived at this B&B late at night. Little bit out of the way. It was raining. The hostess opened the door and showed as the rooms and we were blown away. Huge rooms with nice large beds, excellent mattresses, and nice comfy pillows. Bathrooms and the room itself was very clean. In the morning we were treated to an... More

    We had our honey moon in Ireland and this was the most beautiful of the 5 B&B's we stayed in. Good food. Good people. Host was very helpful in pointing out good food music beer and sites near the home.

    A beautiful old building with a pretty ordinary touch-up, average room, quiet and good bed. Have to come through main house to access room upstairs, really didn't feel welcome at all and wouldn't stay there again

    This was the perfect B&B. The host (Olwen) was very gracious and accommodating and the room was perfect. My grand daughter has been raving about the place ever since, even though she stayed in some luxury hotels afterwards. We only booked one night but we should have booked more - I didn't realise how close we were to Cork. This... More

    Maranatha is an absolutely beautifully restored home a short distance from Blarney in County Cork. Olwen, Douglas and Samson(their magnificent German Shepherd Dog) are the most charming and welcoming hosts. It's very obvious that Olwen loves her home and loves welcoming people into it. She also was able to recommend a charming pub to have dinner in and even called... More

    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.
