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.

I'm not going to say much that hasn't already been said. The house is immaculate from top to bottom, and that's coming from a clean freak. The owner is a charmer and is very knowledgeable about the area. Downtown is very close walking distance but not so close as to be loud. We really enjoyed ourselves here and we'll be... More

We visited Cork in early April to visit friends and stayed in Avondale B and B for three very comfortable nights. Dolores gave us a warm welcome with tea and homemade bread and jam, exactly what was needed after a long journey. She gave us plenty of help in finding things to do in Cork and maps to help us...
