We arrived in Cork on a rainy day after a long eventful trip and were very plesantly surpized to receive a warm and comforting welcome from the hosts. Aideen and Tim made us feel at home and took good care of us. We had a nice, clean and quiet room with a perfect ensuite bathroom. Having a restaurant at the... More

We stayed just one night at this very well positioned B and B. Our main aim was to see as much of Cork as we could in 24 hours and so this central location worked well for us. There is a real buzz about the city, day and night, which we loved. Bed was huge and comfortable. Breakfast in the... More

Overall, this is a nice place to stay for the price. The day to day cleaning of the room was good (towels, sheets, bathroom, hoovering) but the rooms could benefit from a deep-cleaning once in a while. For instance, the mini kettle which was provided was dirty on the handle and the lid and clearly hadn't been cleaned for a... More

Very nice place, a little bit noisy if you have a room street view. Very clean room, but the carpet is stained, very bad looking!!! PLease remove this carpet!!! Otherwise everything was fantastic. Good location, 10 minutes walk from Downtown Cork. Good choice of breakfast and brunch, and very delicious.

I have stayed in about 6 B&Bs and hotels in Cork city and can honestly say this is the nicest place I've stayed in. Location is great, a six minute walk gets you to Grand Parade. Place was bright, clean and airy and the breakfast served in the adjoining cafe the following morning was superb. The owners, Tim and Aideen... More

The reviews are deceiving. This is a dirty poorly kept B&B. Layers of dust on window sills & wall pictures. Carpets in room and stairs filthy. The mattress was old and sunken however the bed Lenin was clean. Timber panelling missing in two areas by window with concrete brick wall exposed. Latch broken on press door to access kettle. Tea...

Location is great for UCC (5-10 min stroll to main gate, about 20 minutes to health science building) and to stroll into Cork City (about 20 minutes into Oliver Plunkett St.). Breakfast was also yummy - make sure to allow enough time, it's all made from scratch. Dinner also looked awesome but I had arranged to meet friends in the... More

Rooms are clean and comfortable with tea & coffee facilities and a TV.. Our bathroom appeared to have been recently refurbished and was modern and very clean. Breakfast is provided by the attached Bistro (also owned by the B & B owners). Fantastic choice over two days we had eggs benedict, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon and the full Irish... More

I would highly recommend Anam Cara B&B. The location is great, close to town and right beside the university. I stayed in a double room for single occupancy which was a good size and very comfortable. The staff were welcoming and very friendly too. The Irish breakfast, in Serendipity cafe was absolutely delicious. I have stayed in many B&Bs in... More
