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

Located on a busy street but I had a room at the back which was really quiet (and I'm a light sleeper). Parking at the back, locked at night. Comfy bed and pillows (down type duvet). Shower was decent. Breakfasts were delightful served in their cafe next door called 'Serendipity'. Handy location, I walked into town each night. The hosts... More

Anam Cara was an adorable little B & B located just a short distance from the city centre area. The parking was free and the Serendipity Cafe breakfast in the AM was very good. You were given a choice of various food items for breakfast and the staff very accommodating. The owner also gave us suggestions and a map as... More

What a great little place. Aideen and Tim greeted us like family and have done everything to make our stay wonderful. Quirky house with dipping floors and tiny bathrooms! We will be back soon as we can. The attached cafe Serendipity is phenomenal. The food is to die for!

Very good value for money. Rooms are functional and spotless. Good service. Lovely cafe serving very nice breakfast. Very handy location for anyone going out or with businesses in the city. Quiet room. Had a good sleep. Owners and staff are very nice and welcoming. Stayed for three nights of Cork Jazz weekend. Was very handy, no need for taxi.
