We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The b&b is well located just a short walk from the centre of the city and right across the street from the River Lee Hotel if you want somewhere to go for an evening drink. Breakfasts were excellent with lots of choice and large portions. The hosts were very accommodating and welcoming. We would... More

This BnB is just a short walk from downtown. Hosts were friendly and room was clean and modern looking. The guest room near the entrance could use a little upkeep - shabby couches. Breakfast would have been better if, like many other BnBs they offered a self service cereal bar with fruit. My biggest beef about this place is that... More

Very comfortable. Very pleasant staff and very nice cafe that is attached where we had our breakfast. Good location too, about a 15 minute walk into the city centre and bus stop right outside the door. Also directly across from the university.

The owner was very welcoming, even with a late arrival after a wedding rehearsal dinner. He was kind, patient, and gave good recommendations for some live music and a pint that night. The breakfast the next morning was hearty, and our stay overall was brief and enjoyable!

Located opposite the River Lee Hotel, this B&B is within a short walk of downtown Cork, but still in a quiet area. The staff are super friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable and breakfast portions are very generous. Make sure you're okay with climbing stairs, though!

Booked and prepaid to stay here 2 nights. Stayed only one and left. Had lots of trouble contacting location for help with directions--they had turned off the phone cited in the information sent to me and not updated the site. I did receive an apology but it was after the fact. There were smells/noise from the restaurant onsite; loud guests... More

Nice location! Right in front of the River Lee...and quite central to the city itself. Hospitality was good as in the room served just right. They also have cafe serendipity which serve complimentary breakfast from 8- 9.30.

Location is perfect as is very close to the city centre, rooms were very clean & well maintained. Very reasonably priced for location. The best part is the breakfast which is served in the very popular café next door, great selection & food was amazing - not just the usual fry up. All the tables were full the entire time... More

Upon arrival we had to ring the doorbell and wait several minutes. We were greeted by a friendly host who immediately began to tell us where the traditional Irish music spots are. The B&B was neat and clean, but it was rather plain and the furniture was a bit worn. It was located in a great location. The location and... More

Stayed for just 1 night in this B&B. As we were flying back home early the next day from cork, we wanted a centrally located B&B so we could walk into town for a meal and a drink. We got some very nice recommendations from the owner for a Pub to visit which we enjoyed. Also as we needed to... More
