Dolores deserves a medal! This was the very best B&B I have ever been in. She keeps everything so sparkling clean it looks brand new. Snowy white bed and table linen. Fabulous breakfast. Nothing is too much trouble. Lovely patio area where you can sit with a drink. Just a short work to the town centre. Highly recommended.

Cycled into Cork in the pouring rain and we were immediately shown to our room after a brief introduction by the incredibly helpful owners Dolores & John and then given space to unpack. Personal touch made the service five star. Dolores was very proactive in helping us get our cycling stuff dry for the morning. Offered us a wide range... More

The Avondale in situated a very short walk from everything Cork has to offer. In addition to this the owners, Dolores and John are an absolute delight. The back patio is a great place to relax after a long day of sightseeing. We would highly recommend staying at the Avondale if ever in Cork.

Location is excellent. From the B&B a short walk will get you to the Main Street in town and many sights and food to enjoy. Dolores is great, helped point us to the must-see sights which we enjoyed tremendously. Room is comfy and shower is warm and strong. Breakfast is good. Cork is lovely, safe and friendly and we could... More

They welcomed us in a very polite and friendly way and even helped bringing our luggage upstairs. The owner also offered to park our car for us in his private parking space. We had a very quiet room with a nice view of the garden. In the evening they recommended a very nice place for supper. The price was ok.

Boy, what a couple! I felt like I had met some of my best friends. We laughed and talked, Dolores even collected me some "good old irish muck" to take back to the states with me! The room was wonderful and we slept well. Dolores gave us good advise about seeing St Finbars and ringing the bells of Shandon. The... More

Dolores was very friendly and welcoming, and gave us suggestions for pubs in the area. Our room was spotless, and the beds were very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious! I would love to stay here again my next visit to Ireland!

The other reviews say it all. This place is clean, comfortable and with a very warm welcome from Dolores. It's a perfect location to explore the city and surroundings. Dolores is very knowledgeable and gave us some excellent tips about things to see and places to go.
